Kechara Forest Retreat photos

July 11, 2013 1

I went on a walk around our Kechara Forest Retreat land today, taking photographs to update our Kechara album. I thought I’d share some of the pictures here, so those who haven’t got access to my album on Facebook can rejoice in them too :)

Feel free to share them…all I ask is that you give credit where credit’s due!
