Observing Nature on cloud 9 Farm

Gryes, Do you know what it means?

I didn’t know what a grye was until, my artist friend,  Robert, went on this research “vacation” to visit one. The sailing vessel, The Sea Dragon, is rounding the cape of South America.

So, come! Here’s a photo of a side of Cloud 9 Relaxation Home. 4 bedrooms for a great family reunion spot.
