Shaking the sand from our shoes

We are back from our trip to the Namib and the Kgalagadi.

Many adventures, more pictures, wonderful memories, new lessons, a love for dry places and an appreciation of rain.

Over a thousand photos later, I will slowly start to sort and sift and process, and hopefully will start posting soon.

There is food, there are flowers - in even the most unlikely places. There are dunes. There is sand and there are camel thorn trees. Bugs. There are bugs. And animals. And glasses of cold things to drink. There are sunsets, and sunrises, and rivers. There is the sea.

Vincent and I celebrate our first anniversary today, and know more about each other than we started.

More to come...
