Skywatch (23)

Well!! Here we are - our first morning on the Lost Island of Cami- we were up and ready(before sunrise) to explore the island After covering the beach, we set off inland, we found the going very rough through the growth and the warm pink sky

After traveling for several hours we found the going much easier and climbing up hill .

We reached the top of the hill - well the view was breathtaking - snowy mountains in the distance and a heavy mist filling the valley that we overlooked. We decided to explore so off we set into the misty valley beyond.



We found the mist was a peasouper (very thick fog) !!!! when all of a sudden I turned and Froze -For there before my very eyes was this huge black shadow - ------------


To be continued.-----On Christmas Day Skywatch.


Skywatch and My World goes hand in hand.

The Team = Klaus - Sandy - Ivar - Wren - Fishing Guy - Louise.
