Sunday Post: Stairway

Each week Jake proposes a theme for creative inspiration. You can post your interpretation to the theme on your blog anytime before the following Sunday.  Remember to post your link in the comment section of the weekly challenge.

Here is my entry for stairway.  This photo was taken in Honduras.  Each day we would climb this staircase to head to a natural swimming hole.  It was the most refreshing water and a daily dip was mandatory.

And here is the pool.

    How beautiful and unspoiled! I’m glad there are places on earth that remain in their natural state, not overrun with human beings.

  4. Wow, that looks absolutely heavenly!! Was the water really warm?

    • TBM says:

      It was nice and cool, which was great since it was always hot and humid in Honduras. If I remember correctly, we went in July.

    Simply beautiful. I love that staircase! Looks magical. Your photo actually reminded me of Hidden Springs in Laguna back in the Philippines. The entire resort is located at the foot of a mountain (Mount Banahaw) so you can simply imagine the natural spring water that comes directly from the mountain. It was a bit eerie though, but breathtaking nonetheless.

    Wow, that is gorgeous! That is the kind of stairway that fits perfectly into the Once Upon a Time period, as you cannot help but look at that and think that there must be something magical waiting for you at the top.

    I totally missed this post!!! What a wonderful place that is—the stairs are awesome!!!! I could just imagine setting up there with a book and a drink and taking it all in !!! Love it!!!

    • TBM says:

      Yes…one warning though…watch out for snakes! We didn’t see one until the last day and that is a good thing otherwise I may not have enjoyed it as much. Snakes scare the heck out of me.

      • Beth Ann says:

        Oh yea–I am with you on the snake thing!!! When we were hiking in a rain forest in Australia one time we came upon a huge black snake sunning on the path and I immediately did an about face. Looked him up later and he was definitely one that we needed to avoid….ugh.

      • TBM says:

        Good instincts…I used to run into snakes all the time when I lived in Colorado and I hated it. I don’t mind admiring from afar, but when out hiking and one is in my path I decide it is time to head home for lunch.

    Absolutely wonderful! 🙂

  19. orples says:

    I absolutely love this stairway. The way it blends in with its surroundings and the use of natural materials sings to my soul. Beautiful share. Thank you. 🙂 The spring (?) is a joy to behold as well.
