‘Flock In Flight’
…a gull glides on the breeze, seemingly without effort…
‘This Morning, And Always’
…we fly into the heart of the new…
This lone, young and tiny bird (a pigeon, or dove maybe) pecked around on the bush path for food and seemed to have no inclination to fly away from us.
Eventually, it fluttered upwards and alighted on a branch, posing for this picture.
So, off on the big bird to Great Britain and Spain today.
The thrill of the new ,and of an adventure half a world away beckons.
I really like this quote from Bill Bryson which neatly encapsulates why travel is so beneficial for you:
“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted”
I expect to see plenty of things familiar to others, but novel to me, to feed this blog and hope to share them with you.
First things first, though….where the hell are my sleeping pills and earplugs for the 29 hour flight from New Zealand?
This shot was taken at a museum, and carries on yesterday’s theme of things left suspended. Taxidermists and curators recreate the miracle of birds in flight. Entry to the museum display is free, but there are strings attached…
Where did they fly whilst alive?How high did they soar?
