Cheers to you from the all seeing owls~
are particularly hard,
subject to extreme ups and downs,
making you feel perpetually unsafe,
like you might, at any minute,
fall off a cliff.
People often wonder,
why be in such a relationship?
They may not share the love of the challenge, the discipline, the risk.
Some humans relax in natural places,
and are less content in human spaces.
While other’s thrive in the social whirl,
a nature’s soul will find depth of meaning,
far from the thrum of a human being.
Nature’s souls go to wild spaces,
for it is here they find their sacred places.
Cheers to you from a nature’s soul~

Cheers to you from Arches National Park in Utah~
We are traveling between Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, so internet is spotty, but I will touch base with you when I can.
One of the world’s top ten miniature museums is located in Victoria Canada. There are eighty-five exhibits here covering world history, Canadian history, fantasy, fairy tales, and even future space exploration.
I loved the nostalgic look at the circus coming to town!
and one of the world’s longest model railways.
These miniature worlds were created by George Devlin over the course of his lifetime. The museum opened in 1971 and George continues to expand it to this day.
Cheers to you from Victoria’s fascinating Lilliputian World~
Vancouver Island is full of stunning hiking opportunities. This Marina was the trailhead for one hike,
where we were greeted by a curious fawn!
The hike wound through pristine rain forest,
and river gorges with wildlife all around us.
The crystalline sea water,
makes sea anenome look like they weren’t under water.
Although all of these shots were taken through sea water, there was no distortion. This is what perfectly clean sea water looks like. We don’t have this in California!
We have been home at The Holler for several weeks now, but these photos send cheers to you from beautiful and unspoiled Vancouver Island~
