My Japanese friend, Tomo (which means ‘friend’ in Japanese), visited me this week! We had a fantastic week where we didn’t sleep a lot but saw many beautiful things. We went to an island called Phillip Island. It can get quite crowded in the summer months with tourism, because the island is famous for wild penguins, but we went on a day that still had a chill in the air.
The island was charming, but the most magnificent part was a view that not many people visited. The Pinnacles. Ancient rock that crashed through the Earth’s crust millions of years ago stood against the brilliant cerulean sea> Even the grass on the hill we sat looked like we had stepped into a photoshopped picture. The colors could not have been more vivid.
I have not felt that at peace with nature and that inspired for a long time. Generally I get my inspiration from the forest or ocean, but this view took my breath away, quite literally. I don’t think I could have been any happier in that moment.
