Postings from St Lucia

Day 60
"Yesterday is HISTORY . Tomorrow is a MYSTERY. Today is a GIFT
That's why it's called the 'PRESENT' "

My present to me was an underwater casing for my Fuji Finepix.


Day 59
"I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all."
Laura Ingalls Wilder

Being a Hummingbird mum is hard work.

When you see the babies at 4 days old.

Then at 10 days old, that is a lot of food to gather.
Isn't nature wonderful?

Day 58

“Look at what you've got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”

Nature's candle moving on for the night.

Day 57
"Joy enters the room. It settles on the windowsill, waiting to see whether it will be welcome here."
Kim Chernin

Not what I expected to find on my windowsill but a stray crisp always tempted her.

Day 56
"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you"
Dr Seuss

Just me relaxing and reading a good book.

Day 55
"Adopt the peace of nature"
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Need I say more!

Day 54
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
Audrey Hepburn

These beautiful lips speak for themselves and often non-stop!

Day 53
"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful"
William Morris

Our "home" for 10 days!

Day 52
"Fashions fade, style is eternal"
Yves Saint Laurent

What style . . . . . . My first underwater self-portrait!!!


Day 51
"Be the change that you want to see in the world"

Mohandas Ghandi

HAPPY and smiling and doing what I love!
Taking photos.
Day 50
For happiness is anyone and anything at all that's loved by you.”
Three of the people who are loved by me.
Day 49
"The Sound of Music"
How could we resist going to this billing of
"Sax on the beach"
Day 48
"Edward Scissor Hands"Nathan proved that he did not need scissors to reveal
this coconut.
Day 47
Chocolate at every stage and yes those white beans and tasted great too!
Day 46
"Its a Wonderful Life"

Certainly a wonderful life for this Globetrotter!
