Cabin


Well the cabin is cosy but quite comfortable.  This is going to convert into bunks for our overnight sleep.

Derek, the guy you saw welcoming us at the door, encouraged us to go to the lounge which he assured us we would find very pleasant.  And he was right.  Comfortable chairs with good views on both sides whereas the cabin only has a view on one side.  We settled in there for the trip.

Red Sleeper doesn't have an ensuite but doesn't bother us at all. The shared toilets and showers are very spacious.

Updated Royals

Royal Hotel Durban South Africa
I have updated the Royal Collection at last!  We now have 130 Royals including a recent contribution of 10 Royal Hotels from South Africa.  
I have seen 96 of the Royals myself, just a few more to go to reach 100.


Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
