In the South Pacific ocean are the Kiribati (pronounced Kiribas) Islands.

Here is a Kiribati house which is right on the edge of the beach and the ocean, what a place to live. I wonder where these people would like to go for their holidays?

Clouds: stratus

Stratus cloud can range from dark grey to white. It is not so high in the sky, but does not usually bring rain. However it makes the day seem dark and gloomy.

The word ‘stratus’ comes from Latin, and simply means ‘layer’ or ‘blanket’. Sometimes stratus cloud can perform an amazing effect as in the photo above.
