To help celebrate the anniversary of the National Park Service we’re returning to the scenery from our Summer Break, seen through the open windows of the Rock Room Visitor Centre at Knockan Crag Nature Reserve in North West Highlands Geopark.
Wishing you all a blessed Sunday,
with love from Xenia xxx

In the city of seven rivers, doves are released into the sky as a symbol for peace. We remember how more than one hundred and forty thousand people lost their lives. Every year on 6th August, we remember.
The main river that feeds the others springs from the Chugoku mountains. The water is crystal clear and full of nutrients. There are crabs on the mud flats at low tide, cormorants fishing. In the middle of one of the rivers sits an island where herons nest. A survivor tells us, he loves to come here and watch the birds, fill his heart with hope for the future.
