This was taken from a boat while we were travelling between islands in Thailand. We were told that birds nests were harvested from the roof of these caves, and exported to China for the infamous birds nest soup. All very foreign to me, and the ladders looked so rickety that I can only assume that health and safety regulations were foreign to this area.
The colour of the sea in this part of the world never ceases to amaze me. It definitely lets me know that I am in foreign climes.

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands
