Imperfectly perfect water lily on Paradise Island, The Bahamas

While walking from an extended time alone at the beach, I was overcome by a solemn sense of gratitude. An appreciation for the simple things the tropical color palate and nature's audible medley. But, in the midst of this gratitude, I looked down, at a poorly maintained koi pond, and quickly appreciated its perfection, in this lily. A sustainable travel project, is travel with simplicity. Where very little impact is made to the environment or culture visited, it is observed in its natural state and appreciated for what it is.
