Halifax to Ottawa, on a Dash-8.
Wait! Is the propeller even turning??!
A sunflower from my garden. I didn’t plant it, though – the birds did.

Another photo from our visit to Barbados in 2014. While touring around, we happened on a polo match in play. Hopping out of the car and we stood with the other spectators to watch for a while.
It was fascinating – both the game and the interaction of the fans. My boys were keen to try to figure out the game, whereas I found it a very cool place to people watch. The spectators set up their folding camp chairs and coolers along the field line, just as I would do at one of my kids’ soccer games. The difference was, these folks were sipping champagne from glass flutes.
It is certainly a game in motion. When those ponies (horses?) came thundering by you knew it. According to the rules of the game, there are four players on a team. Numbers 1-2 are traditionally attacking, 3 is mid-field and 4 is Defense. However, as the sport is so fluid there are no definite positions. That fact kind of tells you all you need to know. Fast-paced and thundering.
It was a brilliant experience!!
