What a beautiful beach!

Scotty Graham said...

Thanks to all of you who left a comment...That shot was taken in Papua, the Western end of Paupa New Guinea which is Indonesia, formerly known as Irian Jaya. The beach is on a remote island in the Raja Ampat Islands...one of my very favorite places to dive in the world. It is one of the last places in the world still pristine and relatively untouched. Walking down this beach, found gorgeous shells just lying in the sand. Wild cockatoos and lorakeets fly freely in the trees...it really is an amazing place...

Quint, I would love to fly you there....and what a place to sip a cold one.

My daughter's birthday was today, so I have had little time this weekend to visit your blogs...but will get there eventually.

Cheers,

Scotty
