South Island Bush Robin

South Island Bush Robin.NZ

Toothpicks you say
However spindly they may be

They launch my flight

The South Island robin is a familiar bird to those who venture into the South Island back-country. It occurs in forest and scrub habitats, where it spends much time foraging on the ground, and can be recognized by its erect stance and relatively long legs. ~ Bernard

Won’t you look stunning
Wearing this for the dance
Don’t forget the shoes

Creek Street Ketchikan

Creek Street  Ketchikan  Alaska.

In the wake of the wind
The village awakens
Awash with whimsy


Creek Street is built along the shores of Ketchikan Creek. It was built over the water because it was simply too difficult to blast away the rocky hills surrounding the creek. This is a common theme with Ketchikan as you will notice a large percentage of the town was quite literally built over the water. ~ Bernard

Gather at the end point
To view the start point
And so it goes for us
