In our day-long excursion we took seven different buses and boats! These are the boats we took in the waters of the mangrove forest.

An unexpected sight, plucked from the water.

Mangrove leaves were harvested by this man to feed his camels and goats.

We were wowed by the dramatic canyons and valleys in the Star Valley. Thousands of years ago this was the seabed. Erosion has worked its magic.

Some of us climbed to the top of the cliffs- wow, what a view!

The day wasn’t over yet-we went on to see some ancient caves, and had another bus and a night-time ferry ride. We were treated graciously the whole day and we pray that some day the Iranian people will also have the freedom we enjoy.
