make a journey, typically of some length.


Modes of travel.


By train


And on rare and very special occasions

we have travelled by helicopter.

For us a novelty.

For others (e.g. Pilot) more like

riding in a car I suspect.

No novelty.


Word of the Day Challenge: Travel







The Q Train engine…

…changing ends to commence its return journey

on the single tourist rail line it uses

for this dine and party service.


Word of the Day Challenge: Light







deform, pulverize, or force inwards by compressing forcefully

A calving

Margerie Glacier…

…makes a bit of a splash as ice hits the sea.


It is not until you realise that

the Glacier face is about 250 feet high (above water)

and the splash is about one third the height of the face

and factor in the amount of ice required

to create a splash that high…

…that you realise that these small vessels

might conceivably be crushed 

should they wander too close

to the action.


Word of the Day Challenge: Crush







a hard, brittle substance, typically transparent or translucent,
made by fusing sand with soda and lime and cooling rapidly.
It is used to make windows, drinking containers,
and other articles.

A souvenir of Africa.


A much better trophy.


Word of the Day Challenge:  Glass







a thin sphere of liquid enclosing air
or another gas.

Not the greatest photo…

..however, I have been told that the black spot

is a naturally occurring bubble in amber. 

It appears there are some

other bubbles nearby as well.
