the day's collection

Isla Navarino was a place that I read about about in textbooks as a child and would dream only distantly about visiting.  Never did I imagine that this island at the bottom of the earth would become home.  On the Chilean shore of the Beagle Channel, the kids have found a beach combing utopia, a place teeming with marine life.  The sailors, meanwhile, have their own sailing paradise of flat water and wind.

otoño en chile

The change of the season has brought us all of the brilliant colors of autumn.  So beautiful to watch the landscape shift as the lenga beech turn from green to bright yellow & red, the dandelions go to seed, and the mountains become layered with ice and snow.
