WHEN NATURE WRITER'S SHARE THEIR FAVORITE UK WALKS...AND PUBS
Still wearing your Royal Wedding fascinator around town? If Harry and Meghan sparked a UK interest in you, check out this list of great walks as written by nature writers. The writing in these pieces is so much more evocative than your typical "go here!" blurb. A pleasure to read.
If they do inspire a UK trip, stop by St. George's Chapel while you're there!
WHO I'M FOLLOWING: Take a look. Take a really close look at the animals that inhabit this earth. They are mind-bogglingly amazing. Joel Sartore is on a mission to capture as many as possible with his 25-year project, the Photo Ark, getting closer than just about anyone. While I love nature and wildlife photographers who capture animals in their natural habitat, Joel's portraits are next level in making the viewer really see the beauty and uniqueness of each animal. I can't help but stare and I hope you do too.
