Travel in the Time of Covid

Recently I was looking at photos of a trip we made to Vietnam and Cambodia, several years ago, and remembering what a wonderful trip it was. So I was delighted to see that this week the Tuesday Photo Challenge from Dutch Goes the Photo was Travel. Sharing photos is a way to travel when we…

Simplicity

“Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy” ― Isaac Newton Day 13 of the 14 day self isolation. We went for a walk down the road to a friends property. There is an old road that we walked along. Towards the end of the used part of the road the forest is taking…
