Lovely Prince Edward County features a 49 kilometre hiking and biking trail. Every time I am in this area I explore a different section.
A harrowing penguin / killer whale chase:
It was a lover and his lass,
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
That o’er the green corn-field did pass,
In the spring time, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring. – Shakespeare
Ha ha ha—that penguin rescue seemed perfectly tailored/”staged” for people like me, even though the poor whale was done out of a snack! What an amazing thing to witness! The mixture of reactions from the viewers, the delight followed by groans of dismay, were something with which I could completely identify! And then, the remarkable conclusion–a rescue through human intervention, with the penguin jumping/being helped into the boat! What a remarkable (and for the people and penguin, happy) conclusion!
I’ll bet those people went home to “dine out” on that story forever!
(Oh, yes–the other pictures were wonderful, too, Miles. But you just may have been “upstaged” this time.) Thanks, Miles!
