Beyond the Writer’s Room

I am going to be using photographs from various places in coming weeks but I’ll always have a view from my room.

The Bearded Dragon is quite common and the good thing is you can get up close. From experience they will latch onto your finger. (Taken in front yard)

He doesn't like his picture being taken.

The Green Tree frog will make himself comfortable anywhere, just not in the laundry basket says my wife.

Kookaburras are quite the eating machine and when there are snacks available they get in close. I took this on a picnic a few years ago.

This was taken at the same picnic, I had to do a little bush bashing to get it though. It’s a Rock Wallaby and as the name implies they live amongst boulders and overhangs. It was a little dark where he was, hence the red eye, I left it in it adds a little something.

This Cactus loves trees, they will eventually smother the whole tree however their flowers are beautiful. They would be about the size of a dinner plate and last only a few days.

All of the pictures that I will be sharing with you have been taken by me on our travels. The view from the room can be limited and I see the wider world as an extension of it.

The following links will take you to a couple of videos, go Buggy Cam.

        But I don’t like rain. That’s a significant reason why I decided to stay in San Diego after all those years of Texas afternoon thunderstorms and hurricanes.

        I got to San Diego on April 27, 1993. On April 30, the weatherman announced that San Diego had not had any rain for 90 consecutive days. I said, “I could live here,” and never went back to Texas.

    It’s funny to see such beauty (the cactus) and enjoy it’s beauty as it’s killing the tree (sad). I love all the pictures though Laurie because they are things I’d never see. Well, except little tree frogs here that look similar to yours… sticky feet too..LOL. The first picture leaves one with a very peaceful sense of solitude. I love that! 😀

      Hmm, poetic there: something so beautiful killing the tree, it reminds me that some of the thins we hang onto in life, that stick to us no matter how beautiful they look can be bad for us.
      See I put that frog up just for you. I like the moon setting, it’s generally peaceful here but that really set the scene.
      Cheers

    Good morning Brother heart,
    These pictures are beautiful and show so much of what I love myself. The first picture with the mountains captured my heart. From then on, I sat here this morning before my computer and dreamed of a world where people would be as loving and kind as the picutes taken by you on your travels.
    I really enjoyed them this morning, especially after what has happened at Sandy Hook, Connecticut.
    Ciao,
    Patti

      Good morning Sis, thanks for your kind words. I like my mountain too, it changes so often. A nice world would be a change but I’m afraid there’s always going to be somebody who will do terrible things to others.
      Sigh
      Laurie.

    Thank you for the buggy ride! I can’t get over how many roos there are in the vacinity! You have done a wonderful job with selling your neck of the woods to me. No wonder you made the move!

      Hi Liz, you’re welcome it’s a lot of fun. There are a few roos, the most we’ve counted is 182 between the front gate and the house. It’s great place to live alright.
      Cheers
      Laurie.
