Covering about 2000 square miles, the Etosha Salt Pan was once a vast salt lake. The rivers flowing into the pan eventually changed their course due.to tectonic plate movement and now flow to the Atlantic Ocean. Now it is a vast expanse of mud and clay that can be seen from space. And it is completely flat!
It is located about 500 kilometers off of the coast of Namibia, on the southwestern side of Africa.
My mother could not be with us in this beautiful place this Christmas. Here is a small glimpse of one of the truly beautiful places on earth, at the tip of South Africa, Cape of Good Hope, for her and my dad of course too. We wish we could be with our parents and grandma and grandpa! The beaches are full of tide pools that we home to all sorts of creatures. The ocean water, despite being very cold, has a variety of stunning blues and greens that can’t be properly captured even with a good camera. So come see for yourself!
We had a wonderful family reunion in Tropea, Italy and found so many lovely views and sites it was hard to leave and only be left with our pictures. We were exploring through the towns and came upon this beautiful site. We hope you enjoy this view as much as we did!
One of another of our wonderful Adventures in Italy was seeing the beauty of the amazing cathedrals. They are filled with beautiful sculptures and paintings on the
walls. The pillars are have wonderful carvings of flowers and faces. We also saw a replica of where Jesus Christ was buried. It was absolutely breathtaking!
In Italy, we got a cool tour from an Italian islander. He showed us around to the coolest places, and caved beaches, And as usual, the waters were beautiful and blue!
Here are just a few photos of the incredible sunsets we were able to see while spending our Christmas vacation in Florida. Some days the sky was completely clear, withthe bright sun reflecting off the water. On other evenings, the sun got behind the clouds in a way that revealed a lot more color in the sky. A truly stunning sight to see!
The forest floor looks absolutely stunning with a fresh blanket of snow. My son walks a neighbors dog through these woods every few days, and has mentioned that the forest looks different each time he goes, and is always beautiful! This is definitely a witness of God’s hand in the creation of the Earth.
