Ahhhhh, I found this breathtaking photograph of the Natural Bridge at Colorado Point on the Internet yesterday. The view is unusual in that it is taken at eye level, right down at water's edge, a place I've never dared venture for fear of huge waves and inherent danger. The waters look amazingly calm but waves and foam likely boiled up moments after this photograph was taken. That's what Colorado Point is all about; unpredictable wind, water and wildness.
When I die, I would like my ashes turned free at this Natural Bridge in Aruba. It is truly one of my most favorite places on the planet. I never tire of the contrast between volcanic rock and restless water. It is said that well below the surface, the waters are calm. The contrast between the wild and the peaceful coupled with the ever changing beauty as the wind and waves carve a new landscape appeals. And, since I've never had the courage to ever walk across the bridge or get anywhere close, I'll need to wait. Hopefully, it will be a long, long time.
