... I did there?) I can't wait for the tropical snorkeling opportunities we will have in the upcoming months!

For those of you not in the loop I am still catching up on a few blogs, it has been a busy
month and living takes precedence over writing (unfortunately for you, fortunately for us) but we are back on the farm and will be staying put for a month...which means hopefully the chance to catch everyone up to speed! Miss you all bunches ...

After about 2 weeks of walking through the relatively unspoilt wilds of the Kii peninsula, the devoted eventually end up at the bottom of a set of majestic stone steps leading up to this, the most sacred of temples. It was stunningly beautiful covered with a fresh layer of snow, and we took advantage of the lack of people and took lots of photos!
