I have been enjoying our rainy days so far. Today is one of those days. I decided to do my homework today and do our hiking tomorrow because we were planning to hike Stonewall Peak which becomes a slick rock towards the peak and hiking on wet slippery rocks with vertical drop off on a rainy day is not a very safe idea. So, yes, I am simply home today. However, sometimes, we do not really have to be right next to the ocean, to the mountains or the desert when we view the beauty of the unfolding of nature. We just need to open our eyes where our home and heart is. And here are some images simply from home.

Camargue - Les Stes - Maries- de la -Mer- is a paradise for wild white horses, buffalos, pink flamingos and other kinds of birds, also called " the land of Flamingos ".Camargue with it's colourful, beautiful flat landscapes had been the habitat for about 500 species of birds especially the pink flamingos. Camargue enclosed by the river Rhone, it is within the 850 - sq- km- Naturel Regional de Camargue. It became officially a Nature Park in 1970 to preserved it's fragile ecosystems while sustaining local agriculture.
Up to 20,000 of those pink flamingos stay in the nature park of Camargue to winter and build their nests in Spring. That's why they always come back there. They fly non - stop from Northern Africa and Spain lay at least one fragile egg.
The ricefields was also a big surprise at least for me, the northern part of Camargue is used for agricultural, like planting rice and other plants, but mostly rice. The southern part is preserved as nature park for the animals.
I can't explain how it feels seeing these beautiful creatures enjoying their freedom, running around in this nature park :) Our trip to Camargue is really unforgetable, simply a "wanderful" experience ;)
