That's Debbie in the maroon car ahead of us. She led us up to her little neighborhood where her house over looks an old coffee plantation. Talk about a plant lover dying and going to heaven. I could here my friend Pat. W. http://gatherings100.blogspot.com/ ooohing and ahhhing all the way from NOB!! :c}
Every morning the Shepard leads the sheep and one goat out to graze and every evening he rounds them up for the night.
The last three pictures are looking out her back porches that over hang the valley below. They show the mist of the cloud forest. Now the mist is only seen during& after rains, early mornings and cool evenings. It was less then 50-75 years ago that the mist was always visible. But with the cutting of the trees to grow sun crops like sugar cane and bananas the cloud forests are disappearing and the temperature is raising. There is a movement to replant the coffee plants but finding the old, big trees to provide the shade is very difficult.
To me this is one of the most beautiful places in my world :c} Some day I would love to call it HOME.
Big News here: P # 2 child called to say that L will go in tomorrow morning for a C section. So I should be a Grandma (for the first time) before breakfast!!! :c} I can't wait ;c}
