I happened to spot this harpist

setting up in Brugge.

What appeared to be tourists

were being lead her way.

Five minutes later not a sign of her.

Must be the shortest practice/busking

session ever.

 

I know I posted this image last week,

however, looking at again I could not help

but wonder if this bloke could practice

his pick up technique a bit more?

 

Even Lucerne’s famous Chapel Bridge,

which crosses the Reuss River is an ideal place

to hone one’s skills and perhaps glean

a few tourist dollars/euros in the process.

A Bourke Street, Melbourne, busker

 

What a way to practice one’s

Twister skills and…

 

…pay a bill or two at the same time.

I love this image.

The very young appreciating

the older generation’s skills.

Something not seen or heard very often

these days….unfortunately.

Misery Creek Bridge.

 A Few years ago a falling tree bought more misery

to what remained of Misery Creek Bridge.

 

 

Sydney’s…

…Harbour Bridge.

 

 

In Botswana we came across

new bridge sporting this sign…

 

We walked slowly across this bridge only stopping

to admire the old bridge just visible on the left.

Chapel Bridge, Lucerne.

My contribution for this week’s

Side Views

My side views are from Lucerne.

I don’t remember the day being that hot…

but there were many people and vessels…

on Lake Lucerne as we cruised back…

from our journey up Mt Rigi.

Some swans were hugging the shore line.

And an almost side view of the famous covered

wooden Chapel Bridge in Lucerne.

Tuesday this week, I completed listening to Song of the Bellbirds,

a light story about an Australian girl who studies opera in Vienna.

She is taken on an outing to Lucerne and walks across this bridge.

Her husband was translating the inscriptions under the cover of the bridge.

I found myself wishing he had been with us when we crossed over.

Lucerne

 
Recently I completed a book titled

Song of the Bellbirds

written by an Australian author

Anne McCullagh Rennie.

Song of the Bellbirds follows the fortunes of a

young Australian Singer who wins a scholarship

to study Opera in Vienna.

One day her European born husband takes her to Lucerne…

and they wander across the Chapel Bridge.

As they walk arm in arm they admire the craftsmanship

taken to build the bridge…

and the Austrian husband translates all these writings

under the bridge’s roof for our Aussie Diva.

Just wish he was there when we were.

As you may have noticed the outside of the bridge

was covered with flowers in September…

and there was even room for a busker to

entertain tourists and locals alike.

So, not a long walk this week but one

I will remember for a very long time.
