our last full day in paradise… and it lived up to its reputation…

we were up rather early and walked along the sand and then over to the banyan tree...

because it was so early there were very few people around… just a few street folk who we had seen on each of our excursions there… it was nice to see them there as they were just quietly going about their business, not harassing any visitors, but clearly appreciating the specialness of the space…

the space has that sacred feeling which reminds me of a forest of trees on Vancouver Island… it is located right on the edge of the highway but when you step into Cathedral Grove you feel enveloped by a sense of mystery and peace…

I felt that each time we have been at the banyan tree, but especially this morning…

we both walked along gently touching the trunks… there are sixteen in total for this one tree…

sadly, over the years individuals have carved names and signs into the various trunks, but I barely see that… just the majesty

what an amazing piece of creation
