Hit or Miss. Every morning we would wake up at first light and walk 10 minutes down to the lookout at the top of the cliffs where we would check the waves. More often than not they were absolute toss but on the rare occasion it would be pumping and you would rush down the cliffs with all your gear to get to the surf before it got worse. Climbing back up the headland after a long surf was always tiring but made bearable by absolutely ravaging every blackberry bush on the way back to the tent. A simple but satisfying lifestyle.
Gratitude: being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and return kindness.
May we all learn to strive to live from a heart full of gratitude. Not just once a year but everyday. By learning to foster a heart of gratitude you enhance life by living in a way that glorifies God. Relationships are enhanced, you experience more joy, and your perspective is shifted in a more positive direction. I’m learning to have more gratitude and it’s made my life more full. I sat on thought about all I have to be thankful for; where I’ve been set, & the people around me, my health, the opportunity to build my craft, the lessons God is teaching me etc.
To be where I am , is beyond a blessing. Having gratitude makes life a whole lot sweeter🍁🍂

Wow, Buda castle photographed through layers of glass, clearly an artistic touch by Milán! 👓 Question is, how is it possible one can see through glass and not wood? 🌳 Let's have a look into that on the atomic level. ⚛️ Glass is known as amorphous solid - which is neither a solid or a liquid. When normal liquids are cooled, their particles eventually arrange themselves into a regular structure; thus becoming a solid. ⚗️ What about amorphous solids? Imagine you can see the particles moving around in a liquid; if you were to take a snapshot at any time - you have the structure of an amorphous solid. ❄️ In other words, when liquid sand is cooled, its particles just freeze as they are – they do not rearrange themselves into a regular crystalline structure. Now that we know a bit about glass, we can talk about its transparency. To answer this question we need to look at what happens on an atomic scale when light interacts with electrons. As you may know; an atom is made of electrons which orbit a nucleus. ⚛️ What you may not know, is that an atom is mostly empty space. 🏟️ If an atom was a football stadium 🏓 a ping pong ball in the middle would be the nucleus and little fruit flies flying around this ping pong ball would be the electrons.

Shadows and sunlight intersect on the Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand. If you look closely you can spot the Centennial Hut and some small trails in the snow leading to and from the hut. Looks like the perfect place to escape to!
