This is my impression of the Grand Canyon.
This is how it looks like in my dreams!
One day, I would also like to see the canyon filled with fogs too!
Where we live, Summer is long, especially so with the global warming.
It seems we only have two seasons, Summer and Winter!
Performing their acrobatic act, dangle off the wire with one hand and somersault down onto the trees below.
One photo here shows a baby monkey dangling off the wire, playing around with another baby monkey who offered its hand, gripping on the other’s leg.
So, it is Summer.
Well, they never seem to have any worries for not having enough food.
PS The photos are not particularly sharp, as they were taken with my compact camera which is the only camera I have with a zoom. The movements of the monkey and the vibration of the wire all add to the blur.
We were loitering on the bank of the waterway in Okayama. Japan.
This café looked particularly attractive, with its walls cladded in green leaves.
This instantly reminded me of another café I have come across in Hokkaido.
Again, the walls were covered with vines and leaves.
Are there any other cafes in other parts of the world which look like these?
This post contains 11 photos of beautiful lotus flowers.
We were travelling with the wind.
At the start of our trip, the hurricane Neoguri was ahead of us. We flew over and past the super typhoon.
I like the mix of the pink flowers and the green leaves.
Yes, we may not have a bright day when flowers bloom and robins sing, but who cares, God has given me another perspective – a totally different view of the lotus pond, battered lotus which still retained their beautiful colors and together with the buds and the leaves, they were just magnificent.
It was like a sea of flowers.
Who wouldn’t want to have sunny days when everything go smoothly, but I must be grateful that the Lord has allowed me another beautiful day.
Maybe, I will come back another time, another weather!

In my previous post, I have shown an overview of the footbridge which is ranked the third most beautiful bridge in Japan.
The water below the bridge was running fast – I imagine that the speed will increase with torrential rain. A lot of armour rocks were laid underneath the bridge to protect the bridge pier and foundations.
Hope this post is not too technical; I may post more on the aesthetic side of the bridge in due course!
The Frommers travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge “possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world”. It opened in 1937 and had, until 1964, the longest suspension bridge main span in the world, at 4,200 feet (1,300 m).
This groups of bridges took 10 years to build and was completed in 1988.
There is no doubt in my mind that the elder sister looks more aesthetically attractive, despite the age!
