The Black Beach

It’s been a bit since I made a post and that’s because I was on vacation and thought I would share some pictures in this post on one of the places I visited that I truly enjoyed.  Some of the pictures here appear more for documentary purposes to provide a better sense of the area.  That being said though, I never intended to document my experience here and so in some ways the documentation is incomplete!

Also, the colors on the blog are regrettably distorted by the WP resizing engine so unfortunately these images can’t be really viewed inline as I intended them.  To help I have placed a slideshow gallery at the bottom of the page where you can see the colors a bit better, still not perfect.

Alliteratively you can click on an image to view its full websize and color and then return to the blog by clicking on the back button on your browser.

Regrettably the Rain washed us out and led to the cancellation of the run before it got dark and before I could get race pictures, so what follows is some coverage of the pre-race activities.
