It had been extreme heat for most of the day……early evening I wandered down to the beach to catch the last rays of sun….the beach deserted apart from the odd seagull looking for an evening snack. The wind was now onshore, cool and refreshing. I was eager to try out my new camera which I have yet to make friends with.
Still…. it was a beautiful evening and here is some of what I saw…..
Like gazing into the infinite undisturbed by humans…..
This post got inspired by a fellow bloggers’ trip to Flores this year and looking at the photos I thought wow I remember this place….beautiful. They asked whether it had changed and id probably say not much…….maybe busier sedikit (a little bit in bahasa indonesia) And so dug out some photos.I was pleased that I was able to lay my hands on them after 10 years..hurray for cds!

The harbour at labuhanbajo
Pulau Rinca national park entrance…..
Komodo near the jetty to greet us. It has a name on its back. I wonder if its still there?
On our walk…..kering sekali our guide said it hadnt rained for 5 years! This komdo was huge and quite intimidating . Both our guides had big sticks to fend them off…. luckily no need!
A kerbau or water buffalo nestled in the muddy cool water. I remember it being pretty hot.
Near where we stayed at Labuhanbajo… ssoooo beautiful and peaceful …..salam hangat!
Its true…its summer where I live in south oz and at present we are in the midst of an extreme heatwave. Temperatures of 40 to 45 during the day and high 20’s at night. I head for the beach early in the morn and late in the day.
Just after sunrise this morning…..
Later in the day a few days ago……
Taken on a lonely path high in the mountains of Nepal…
