Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Way Home

The Weekly Photo Challenge is On the Way. We’ve just returned from the USA…a wonderful visit with family and friends, but it is always GREAT to return home.

There are two ways to return to our Ometepe Island home. Sometimes we fly and walk to our house from the airport, but because we were returning with over 200 pounds of books and materials for my elementary school library, we took the ferry.

We usually see unusual things on our way home, but this was really unique. A circus was in town and the trainer took the elephant to the lake for a bath.

The anchor is pulled up, and we are off.

  1. Hope you had a nice trip. Concepción has been upset you guys left him. He should settle down now that you’re back, but it seems like the whole cordillera is rumbling. I miss being there at its mercy. It’s spiritually uplifting.
    Un elefante en Ometepe, que cosa más rara, from India to Ometepe, a gypsitoes like you. I missed your posts. Welcome back.

  2. Love the elephant photo Debbie!!! How was your visit back? I’m sure it was lovely but also nice to be home! Looking forward to hearing more about your visit. 😊

  3. Welcome back, Debbie. Sounds like you had an enjoyable time as well as a successful book “round-up” . The volcano and clouds are a welcoming sight…the elephant an unexpected attraction. 🐘

  4. HAHAHAHHA..LOVE the elephant photo,,,,how funny!!!!!!!!
    I will be in Ometepe on the 7th of June,,,,,for 5 days!!!!!!

    Looking forward to my ,,,,adventure…
    Welcome back to your little slice of heaven!

  5. Wonderful photos. As for a canal through your lake — if they can dig a 40+ foot ship channel through Galveston Bay, I’ll bet they’ll pull it off just fine. As a matter of fact, I think they’re going to be deepening the ship channel. I’ll have to check that out.

I'd love to read your ideas and thoughts below....
