ShareMondays2018 – Shelter

I took my parents along to see the wonderful little grebe family on the Glasshouse Lake at RHS Wisley Gardens last week. They put on the most tender display of parenthood for us! Such a treat and a joy to share it with my mum and dad.

Shelter

For every dad
Who’s carried
Us upon their backs,
Provided shelter
Away from harm,
Fed us,
Clothed us,
Kept us warm.
We leave the nest
Yet still rest
Upon your strong arm.
Wrapped in your love
For all our lives,
Laugh with us,
Cry with us,
We know you would
Die for us.
But do you know
That this time dad,
It’s us,
Your kids,
Who’ve got your back.

The start of October has brought some stormy weather to Kos!

We went down to the ruined temple of Aghios Stephanos to watch the storm roll across the island and the waves crash over the rocky promontory.

Amongst the ruins live geckos and lizards, often hidden from sight in the crevices.

This Stellagama Stellio, or Roughtail Rock Agama, revealed itself briefly whilst seeking out shelter from the blustery weather.
