We started the trail above “Patience Bay” with views onto – and memories of – yesterday’s descent.
In spite of the (very easy) ascent Ken still had a smile, and so did everyone else.
Perhaps the smiles had something to do with the views that greeted us at every turn.
We eventually made it back down to sea-level – and a very beautiful sea-level it was.
But we weren’t the only Simians walking on the beach that day.
I love this photo of an “inter-specific inter-section”. It seems artistically staged, with the two groups representing different primate families going in opposite directions and metaphorically separated by a sinuous line of kelp.
I like this photo too. It’s amazing that none of the players in this scene acknowledges the existence of the other species. It’s as if they are denying that the other exists! Do we deny the ape in ourselves? Yes, I think we do.
Enough esoteric philosophizing . . . Soon we were on the rocky shores headed for a very special ascent.
This is what it looked like on the way up.
And this is what it looked like from the top.
Then it was just the small matter of getting up and over the never-ending hill.
And finally we could enjoy the bubbly.
