Down By The River….Chicki and Me

5 Sep

Just like Margaret, Chicki likes the scenery

I love ducks

A great place to swim

Sharks live here

Here we are, Chicki and me, down by the river.

It’s a beautiful day: the cockatoos are rejoicing, the swallows are swooping, the ducks are swimming (and waddling here and there).  As if from nowhere, a  lone stilt suddenly appears.

Green after rain,  shrubs and trees are blossoming. Clear water laps onto the yellow sands: the muddy depths are undisturbed. Little fish swarm near the surface.

Along the promenade, a small stream of walkers: many accompanied by their four-legged friends: passes by. Here and there, visitors pause to rest, and take in the view.

Don’t we  live in a wonderful part of this incredible world?

      Thanks, Lorelei! I spend part of most days, here. You never know what you’ll see…

    Hi Margaret,

    it’s good to see you down by your lovely river. I hope this means you’ve finally thrown off that dreadful flu!
    it looks such a lovely spot, and when I saw Chicki I couldn’t believe how much he looks like my little dogLucy that we have sadly lost.

    Take care and keep writing

      Thanks, Kate. Chicki’s a girl: her full name is Chicki Rose.:)
      Unfortunately. I’m very sick at present with another flu-like virus.
      Writing will have to wait, I’m afraid.
      Keep up your marvellous efforts!
