Week in the presence of Beauty

A friend from Sweden came to visit me for a week. She is Brazilian born
but has lived in Stockholm for 37 years.
She asked me soooo nicely if I would post a pic of her on my blog ...
How could I refuse.


What is beauty...

...Is it that shadow that skips across the sand

then disappears into the sunshine ?


This morning  (half asleep)  I gazed from my window and noticed  two

"very large" birds high up in the morning  sky.

I understood instantly, they were strangers to this part of the world.

So grabbing my cam. I rushed out just in time to see them sail  effortlessly over

my head.

At first glance I guessed ( or hoped ) they were  a pair Eagles, however upon closer inspection

It is revealed that they are indeed a species of stork !!!

But still very nice to witness something I had not seen before.

A wonderful beginning to the day !!!


High up,heading towards me.


They are   NOT  Herons.


Sailing the wind.

Wondering where they were going and why !

I watched as they sailed out of sight, just as I had watched an airplane

yesterday fly out of sight.
