Another greeting from Florida, this time from a sailboat. It was a very ‘stealthy day’ as it was hard to distinguish the sky from the water. This enticed me to write the poem Blue-Gray, see: http://anarette.wordpress.com/2013/12/04/blue-gray-moments

I’ve been in Indonesia for over two months, and one of the highlights of my trip was visiting Komodo National Park to see the dragons. This photo was taken just as we left Labuan Bajo Harbor on our way to Rinca Island for a trek through dragon country.
Really nice picture, but wondering what the dragons were like?

Lake St Clair is the deepest lake in Australia, carved out by glaciations over the last 2 million years, although the glaciers are long gone today. Last summer a couple of friends and I went fly fishing on Lake St Clair, but we only had two rods and a kayak, so I spent most of the day paddling around, completely alone on this vast, serene lake. I saw snakes sunning themselves, trout leaping for insects and the remains of a weatherbeaten mast with a metal plaque which read ‘LONDON’. It must have been over 100 years old. Amazing.
Nice shot, wish we were there right now!
Spending time together
Beautiful shot, you both look so happy!

this is HEAPS back dated, but I went fishing with the parents on may 24 – 26, 2 weeks after my Hong Kong trip.
so that’s my feet, and bunk beds all around me. I didn’t manage to catch any fish, neither did I get a lot of sleep. every time someone walked passed, it’s as if they took hold of the corners and started shaking it..
on the second night papa fished in the fishing hole (beside the beds) and caught lotsa stuff!!
papa and momsy with the hand line…
Wonderful pictures, your parents are the cutest couple ever!

After having lunch at Snake Island, we then proceeded to our next destination, Codugnon Cave. You have to pass thru a small hole to get inside/outside the cave. The structure of the cave is just so amazing! Our guide told us that locals get to go up the caves just to get Edible-nest Swiftlets (Collocalia fuciphaga). The nests are found in the crevices of the limestone cliffs and are the main ingredient of the health enhancing bird’s nest or most commonly known to us, Filipinos – “nido soup. “
Great shot, you all look like you are having a great time!

This is a photo taken some, not very long time ago, but I still cherish the place for the peace of mind and heart it gives. The location is Kolka beach in Latvia. It is reasonably far from the usual tourist places and crowds as in our quite famous beach along the sea resort Yurmala. Beautiful nature and tranquility. What more can you ask for?
Great shot, not a worry in the world for sure!

After a sleepy couple of days on Don Det, a fishing trip sounded like the perfect activity that didn’t require too much actual activity. We booked a trip for $6 each which departed at 3pm and returned after sunset. All gear included. Bargain. There was also the option to pay $5 extra and have a BBQ where they would cook you your catch. We decided that the chances of us actually catching anything worth eating were slim to none and we also knew the sort of standards that these trips held them selves to… i.e. none, so we stuck with the basics. After a bit of standing around, we were led down to our boat. It had a foot of water in the bottom, which, bearing in mind the boat is only about two feet deep anyway, is quite a lot. They had a go at getting it out with the electric pump but that turned out to be broken too. They ushered us in to the boat and off we went. Wet feet, wet bum, wet bag. Our boat men were brothers, the eldest about 16 and his brother can’t have been older than 14. Knowing we were in the capable hands of two… children, we set off up the Mekong in the worlds most un-seaworthy long boat.
Wow, you sure mastered your technique!

My sisters live in Tampa, Florida. One of them has a large boat. The last time I visited we went out on the inland waterway near Clearwater. I put my feet up and relaxed back to enjoy a wonderful warm day in March.
This pic was a self-made shot. I was on the beach in Forte dei Marmi, Lucca, Italy, August 2012. The sign on the red boat in Italian means “Happy.”
Very beautiful shot!

Here I was stretching out in the sun while floating on the Ou River. We had just returned from a short trek. My feet was muddy from being absolutely clumsy. And although not visible, one foot was bleeding (probably from a leech bite). But nothing that splashing it off with some river water can’t cure. The serenity of the surroundings is a mood enhancer. A good cause? Visit Laos and be entranced by its natural beauty and its unaffected way of life.
Nice shot, looks really beautiful there!
