Walking Together




As "promised", the following morning brought delightful sunshine, beckoning us outside for a walk.




The foyer's atrium was sensational in the morning sunlight as we passed through towards the beach.




The resort looks rather impressive from the tree-line which separates the grass from the beach.




Quite a steep beach with a rough surf, not safe for swimming but perfect for a winter stroll.




We soon took jackets and shoes off.




A small creek runs into the ocean....




 ........flowing swiftly after the rain, preventing a safe crossing. We head for the grassed areas beyond.


Available for purchase here

A beautiful line of fig trees gently leads us back to the creek.




The rain has brought extra water to spill over one side of the creek bank.




The figs form a welcoming arch over the entry road, leading us back to the main building.




I'm always extra grateful for a sunny day after a few rainy ones, especially when that day finds you in a new place to explore and walk together. It was only yesterday, one hour's drive, yet it already seems like a dream from another time.

LOL! I was looking at your beautiful photos and thought to myself, "I can almost hear the ocean waves hitting the shore and birds singing." Ha! The sound was coming out of my headphones. :P It looks like a wonderful place to regather.
