Beauty in Place

As Sinatra sang:  “It’s very nice to go trav’ling / To Paris, London and Rome / It’s oh so nice to go trav’ling / But it’s so much nicer, yes it’s so much nicer, to come home.”

That’s my take on Victoria.  Returning brings feelings both familiar and exhilarating.  

This summer, these song birds echoed my sentiments.

It’s easy to fall for a city that serves up shots of joy, within the confines of a daily walk.

    Wow! The glories of the island seem a long way away, and a long time ago. Glad it’s become home for you and still wondrous.
