Featured Photo:    (The Wilds; Cumberland, Ohio; USA)

Chilly and coated by a cloudy grey sky, the October afternoon wasn’t the best day to visit The Wilds in Cumberland Ohio. But thankfully, memorable moments are never confined to blue sky afternoons.

Road Running with Roosters

 

In Utah, it was renegade cows.  On St John in the U.S. Virgin Islands?  Wild donkeys on the patio gave room service a new twist.  There were wild chickens in Bermuda.  And the diminutive island of  Vieques in Puerto Rico often had the feel of a petting zoo with a menagerie of animals wandering at will.

Running the roads of Vieques took sharp eyes and a little bit of nerve.  Thick foliage gave the narrow roads a corridor-like feel at times, and we quickly learned that rustling noises to either side could portend the appearance of a chicken, or more likely, a whole flock of wildly speckled fowl.  It was equally possible that the chicken noises would, instead, reveal wild dogs or horses.  And so our morning run was undertaken with a greater degree of focus, defensive agility and with our leg brakes at the ready.

Horses and chickens were harder to read than the seemingly well fed and sociable stray dogs, but the tethered horses in the schoolyards did look like a better ride than the typical yellow bus.

In the end, our best response (beyond some impressive vertical leaps) was to run to a beach. Come to think of it, not such a bad strategy at all…

Featured Photo: Linear Design (The Palace of Versailles; Paris, France)

Amidst the gilt and grandeur of the famed Palace of Versailles, these simple patterns of lines and light caught my attention. The massive 2,300 room chateau is a protected UNESCO World Heritage site for its cultural significance and was a highlight of our trip to Paris, France. For another perspective on the enormity of the structure, consider that there are some 2,152 more windows in addition to this one.
