Weekly Photo Challenge: My Beacon of Home


The Weekly Photo Challenge is Local.

“There’s no limit to the human capacity for the homing sentiment.”
~ Edward Abbey

Like a beacon, our Concepcion Volcano on Ometepe Island is my guide home.

From the bell tower in Granada, Concepcion shows me the way home.

As we get closer, Concepcion signals home with puffs of smoke from the depths of her restless bowels. Go back to sleep my gorgeous beacon.
