If you said to me “Quick what do you think of if I say “water?” I’d say: the ocean.
One of my favorite photos of the ocean, is this one (below) which I use on my “masthead” at the top of my blog. I took it when Mr F and I hiked the medieval footpath that links the five villages of the Cinque Terre region of Italy. As you can see the path is high up and winds along the coast through vineyards, and olive orchards that grow on the steep slopes …
I took this photo on the rocks below the lighthouse at Finisterre, in Spain. In the middle-ages this spot marked the edge of the known world.
Some of my favorite beaches are in Malibu, which has a twenty-one mile strip of prime Pacific coastline
Monty Carlo and a new friend playing on a dog friendly beach in Santa Barbara, which also has many miles of white sandy beaches
Ah Cape Town…
The only way get to this waterfall, a two-hour drive from Cape Town, we had to climb ladders on the rock face.
The water was freezing cold …
Talking of hiking, what is the most important item in your backpack …?
In Southern California we have to carry enough water for each day’s hike, but along the Camino there were public water fountains along the paths.
And finally, this concrete channel is the Los Angeles River. I’m not kidding. Are we supposed to thank the Army Corps of Engineers?
After the 1938 flood the Army Corps of Engineers encased the forty-eight mile river bed and its banks in concrete, allowing only a small amount of water to flow down its middle.
