Busy with travel, meetings and management visits last week and this week!

 

The weather is finally breaking.  I spend ten minutes now and then feeding our pigeons on the roof.  This was the first sunrise worth photographing.  I took this last Thursday.  Today started off as a lovely morning with some drizzle, but unfortunately it turned into a very dusty day.  Patience Kuwait! A few more days and we will get there.

A few of our pigeons are lazy.  They spend most of their time inside the loft – and only step out for a sun-bath and a stretch.  The homing pigeons on the other hand are like little athletes.  Three of them are on their morning sprint before breakfast. They fly for about ten minutes at lightning speed. They are now getting used to our house and will soon be ready for their first trip! Can’t wait.

The good news is I woke up on the flight to catch this beautiful moment; the bad news is that I didn’t wake up early enough to have a glass of water before sunrise.
