I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Not a beach you can access unless you use a boat, and there is no way I’d be landing on the shore anywhere around that area!

    1. As much as I could with a bridge camera at the time. Wasn’t nearly close enough for decent pictures, but it was a lovely experience.

  1. It’s a shame they are dangerous, as they are so cute to see.
    Mind you, given how many were killed by hunters, it’s small wonder they are wary.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. I must admit to being a little nervous when walking some of the trails and seeing notices about bears in the area. But wonderful to see them in their natural habitat.
