Scenes on Sunday ~ Rental Cars

The fastest car in the world is whatever rental I’m driving.

first rental this road trip

Mitsubishi Outlander

Travelling Music ~ Barbados

Beaches, Surf, Sun, and Fabulous Food, make a great vacation!

This Friday I head off for the USA on an extended vacation ~ two of the most important things for me to take on vacation are a great book, and some cool recorded music.  I have the book; Isaac Asimov’s Extraterrestrial Civilizations, and this is one of my favourite holiday songs.

Some say the West Indies are all about Cricket, Rum, and Sun.  And that Bridgetown is full of older American women.  All I know is that you don’t go there in July, August, or September.

Marijuana is popular in the Windies,

and in California.

 

Songs on Saturday ~ Airport

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a plane ticket.

I’m going on a trip soon, during which I’ll pass through a half-dozen airports; Newcastle, Heathrow, Chicago, John Wayne, Phoenix, and Dallas / Fort Worth.  Isn’t John Wayne such a cool name for an airport?

Airports exist outside of normal time and space ~ airport bars doubly so.

Scenes on Sunday ~ Turkey

When a man is weary of sunshine and the sea, he is weary of life.

I a little while I’m going on my first vacation of the year, to Olu Deniz in Turkey.  I was there last year, and wasn’t brave enough to go parasailing ~ I’ll be doing that exciting activity this year.

the hotel has only about 20 rooms, but the pool area is really nice

 

Wilderness Remembered

The Earth has music, for those who listen.  ~  Shakespeare

haunting music of the wind

drifts over the wilderness

the only roof, the stars

the desert is bleak and beautiful

a fine place for outdoors living

not as comfortable as a patio

wilderness imagination

The clearest way into the Universe is through the wilderness mountains.

~

leave the city of your comfort

travel into the wilderness of intuition

walk upon the hot virgin dirt

and let free your deepest imagination

no more pain degradation hurt

and your soul is one with all creation

deep in the lonely barren desert

You could walk out of Zion Canyon

but I wouldn’t like to try it.

Snowy Lake Tahoe

This is a cool picture of Lake Tahoe by Rhapsody.

I have a friend who wants me to take her to Lake Tahoe, not if it’s snowing I won’t.   Give me a little sunshine and it will be a great road trip.
