Chicki by the River

1 Oct

Chicki atop the rock

Our Maltese Chicki goes wild with excitement every day, as outing time arrives. It’s as though she cannot contain her joy at the prospect!

With so many sights, sounds and smells awaiting her, is it really any surprise?

Secretly, I wonder if she enjoys her role as a photographic model. Posing for the camera seems second nature! Like a pro, she knows what to do!

Here she is, atop the rock! All poised: so intrigued by her surroundings. The flowing river: the sands: the flora: the birds, reptiles, and animals. Can you sense her happiness?

What joy our pets can bring!

Spring in July?

11 Jul

What a lovely day we’ve had today! Sydney reached a top temperature of just over twenty degrees C.: sunshine all round.

This morning, I spent some time by the river. Walking on the sands, turning from time to time to gaze at the water’s beautiful reflections, I suddenly saw a group of teenagers arrive. One carried a camera.

Everyone: especially those young and beautiful: loves being photographed. But I have to take my hat off to the pretty, dark-haired young lady who braved the freezing water in the name of art!

I’ve personal experience of very cold water, and I don’t intend to ever repeat it.  Most probably, the water temperature now is about twelve degrees: nevertheless, this young stalwart withstood it twice for the camera. I’m not sure whether her excited squeals were exacerbated by having an appreciative audience, but, in an odd sort of way, she appeared to be having the time of her life.

Oh, to be so young, and full of enthusiasm!

Still, at any age, one can still revel in the pleasures of a glorious, Spring-like day.
