The Arch is a well known spot in the rock islands of Palau. The bottom of the arch looks a little like it's hovering above the water, right? Not really. Tiny little marine mollusks called chitons, eat the algae and barnacles on the rock, but they end up scraping away the rock, too, so it just looks like it's floating. Crazy, huh?
They say you should never mix business and family but these two defy those odds in a big way.

We’re so happy to have you a long for the journey and can’t wait to get to know Southern California better!
The beautiful lull,
The dangerous tug
We get to feel small
From high up above
And after a glimpse
Over the top
The rest of the world
Becomes a gift shop #tragicallyhip
52) going into the Pacific Ocean.
I found inner peace as I went into the sea. Cool ocean breeze hitting up against my face while looking out into the horizon. The sky looked like something inspired by @garethemery 's "100 Reasons To Live" album cover. Not surprised by it because I too find it inspiring!
