By the River 1 of 2

We went down to the river in the evening to see what we could spy.  Isn't s/he lovely.


  1. Very delicate. But what bird is that? I am on a train so not able to meander over to the bird-book shelf. Love the spindly legs.

  2. It looks like a blue Heron to me. I love his little foot lifting off. A super clear shot.

  3. I like how you captured the bird in action. Just as good as capturing one in flight.

  4. What a gorgeous image, Joan! Great capture.

  5. According to my sources, it's a White-necked Heron (previously called Pacific Heron). Such a beautiful line of neck, wing and leg!

  6. absolutely beautiful... great capture.

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
