No one would believe it without seeing it, Frank...and even then it's hard to believe, I know! I love that you have seen it!
Frank L Croston.: You are right,Ginnie,it takes your breath away, ( literally,sometimes) There were times I had to sit ,and ponder on things here,more than any church I have ever been in.

Superb Frank! Is this the view you had from where Elizabeth shot you today?

Nicely done, Frank - a difficult one to get in that light.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom.
One of natures wonders. Great to go down the river, which reminds me of that film based on a true but rather sad story 'Into the Wild'.
