Matilde the She Boar

leave a comment »

 

Came upon this beautiful she-boar the other day. Very friendly, and would have been friendlier had I offered her a snack – though I have a policy of not feeding other people’s animals without their consent. Though disappointed, she was happy to pose for photos and didn’t seem to mind that I struggled with getting such a magnificently enormous creature into the frame. I think we both agreed a head shot would be the right thing.

Love the long snout… bear-like, a bit dangerous. Lotta grunting. But really, a rather nice girl. If she had a name, I think it would be Matilde…Hog-4

Zoo-Apr13-128

Coupla squirrel monkeys playing in a palm tree. I suppose Peanut the Monkey might have been more tolerable if he could have played in the trees year-round. But half the year he was stuck indoors… I wonder if I would like him more today if I ran into him again.

Horse-y

 

Went to the KareKare Beach Races on Saturday – horse racing on the beach. A refreshing change from the usual street fair and I got to meet some interesting characters. Loved these two ponies…

Rather like this shot of the bumper cars from the other night.

Rides-4

Not quite as fond of this one, but strangely, quite a few people loved it – so I thought I’d share it here… see if anyone else likes it. Hmmm… sorry for sounding grumpy… just didn’t get what I was expecting. And like pretty much everyone in the world – I find it hard to be dazzled by Brussels when I was expecting Paris…

POstbox

This mailbox contained letters from home, pictures, postcards, news. And sometimes free samples and stuff we ordered. And of course the telephone bill and the electric bill. And every time I opened it up, I had a sense of anticipation, a wee bit of hope, wonder. Even if most days there were no surprises, I loved that feeling.

Email and courier deliveries just aren’t the same. It’s not that I want to go back. Not really. It’s just that they have no soul… And this old box – it’s got soul to spare…
