The photograph above was taken in St. Lucia in December 2010.
Like the humming bird, we like to fly off in all directions!  Its flight path, in this case , leads to the Historic Houses we have visited.
When at home we walk, rather than fly, and this statement will open a list of our walks with the U3A Walking Group!
