When you think SoCal you think palm trees but you should also think of these trees, the endangered Torrey Pine.
Found only in San Diego county and on Santa Rosa Island, the Torrey Pine is perfectly adapted to the dry coastal climate they call home.
A hike at the Torrey Pines State Park is a great way to see these beautiful, rare, trees up close! ...
Home to a 400-year-old ship building yard🤩🤩🤩 In medieval times, This town was a thriving port. Founded by Maharao Khengarji I in 1580, it was a gateway to West Asia and Africa, buzzing with trade, located as it was at the intersection of the spice route and the camel caravan route.
As maritime trade grew, traders—belonging to the seafaring Kharva community of both Hindus and Muslims—developed a new expertise: boat-making and repairing to add to their traditional navigational skills. They became adept at building their own ships, known as dhows, for use in their thriving cargo trade. Today, this almost 400-year-old tradition and craft still endures, but is clearly slowly on its way out.
The dhows are entirely wooden—built of sal wood imported from Malaysia, Indonesia, and Burma, or procured locally from Gujarat’s babool trees. Built by hand by craftsmen who are barely literate and have no training in engineering, the ships come up expertly without so much as a sketch being referred to.
The shipbuilders are mostly from the carpenter community. “It’s an art requiring hard work,” “The traditional skills have been modified over many generations. They used to make small vessels of 40 tonne capacity. Now, they make vessels with capacity up to 2,000 tonnes, but the process used is more or less the same.” #india#gujarat#kutch#mandvi#beach#gateway#trade#spice_route#boatmaking#shipbuilding#rukmavatiriver#historicphotography#keepsupporting#travelphotography#mobilephotographyphy#uniquetravel#offroadtravel#historictravel#foryou#viral#bbvoyage#Joshicochin @indexperience.fr

What motivates & inspires you?
I am constantly asking myself this question and analyzing what I surround myself with. Does this challenge my way of thinking? Does this bring something positive to my life?
I am a big believer of, “You are who your surround yourself with.” And I’m not only talking about good influences like family / friends, but what you listen to, read and consume on social platforms.
Some things that motivate and inspire me are listening to podcasts while I’m driving, reading books that stretch my way of thinking (just finished The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People), following people that give me new perspective (@mariefeandjakesnow, @hbgoodie, @lolahubner and @haylsa just to name a few!) and surrounding myself with people who love and support me!
What are some things that get you up in the morning?☀️
