What an amazing, wonderful gift I was given this morning. Today is the 8th day that I have posted a picture on Facebook, moments in time of my day.
Each and every day brings its own gifts, moments in time that can make us smile and wonder at the beauty of the world that we live in. It can fill your heart with overflowing feelings of peace, love, gratitude and the preciousness of all life.

Baby Turtles

This morning I walked along a small deserted beach, happy in my solitude.
The arrival of five young people on to the beach broke my reverie but what a gift I was about to receive from them.
They were from the turtle project at Alagadi and had come to check a nest that had hatched two days previously.
They were checking to see if any of the baby loggerheads had been unable to get out by themselves.
I was privy to this process.

Wonder of wonder three babies were found alive.

I was spellbound at the first find and overwhelmed to be able to hold the second one out, a magical precious moment in time.

Below are a few photographs from my week.

Lots of love and laughter

The Great Gathering

This story has been going around in my head for days, so I thought I would share it with you. Several years ago I saw these scenes in my minds eye. This is what I saw and heard. The Tribes
