Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue
America Bay in New South Wales, Australia, is the picture of tranquility and a short trek in, through snake-infested bush, from the road.
“One of the most poisonous snakes in the world lives in this area,” our newest family member, an elephant trainer who happened to have worked with snakes in the past, said to us in his thick Aussie accent. “But, they shouldn’t bother us.”
Comforting, indeed. So, we walked the mile or so in, keeping watch for things we didn’t want to see and finally arrived upon this incredible vista.
So mesmerized by its beauty, were we, that we spoke only in whispers so as not to disturb the ambient peace.
Within minutes we each began our own dialogue with the land, perched on a massive rock outcrop while absorbing the beautiful view.
It was one of the most magical moments of our trip to Australia two years ago.
And then, of course, we had to walk back through the snake-infested bush to get to the road.
We saw one snake dart into the shrubs … and lived to tell the tale. 😉
Thanks for visiting …
