On the verandah


We lounged on the ancient chairs on the verandah of the hotel, sipping drinks, taking in the view and watching small birds flit in the grass -- they were tiny wrens and red beaked finches. The birds were too small and too far away to get a shot so I settled for the chicken scratching around on the verandah, while we wondered if the rich people from the resort would dare to venture down here for a drink.

  1. Quick comment, be back later.

    That is no chicken. That is a chook.

  2. The rich people from the resort would not appreciate this any way. It surely is a gorgeous part of the Great Divide - well I figure it is a part of the GD.

  3. Of course it's a chook but thinking of those who don't know the local lingo chose a more international term ... but should really have called it a hen.

    I guess it's part of the Great Dividing Range which as my school geography teacher used to say is not a range but many ranges

  6. Just read your previous posts so I needn't have asked where you were staying. Sorry!
    I must get up there one day ...
