~ Aristotle ~
We walked this way many times on a local hiking path but this day we noticed the face-of-a-man-rock lurking along the path. Its mysterious shadows yet stalwart gaze gave us an eerie feeling. Was this Mother Nature’s way of watching us? Maybe it was the way the shadows fell across the face of the rock from the setting sun that we hadn’t noticed before. Or perhaps it was Mother Nature’s way of letting us know we were protected or maybe she was just being humorous. Either way, it was something to marvel at.
What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.

Or how about this sea monster located off Peratrovich Island in Southeast Alaska? The tides draped him with ‘Pop-weed” or more officially Bladderwrack, which, by-the-way, is mineral and iodine-rich when used in cooking and some of the best garden fertilizer around. None-the-less, an eerie creature indeed as we slowly paddled by on our kayaks. Once again, another marvel of nature.
