Joyride

Growing up in Guyana, a joyride meant what it sounded like, jumping on a bicycle/ motorcycle and going out for a ride with friends and having fun, but it seems that up north it means and meant a completely different thing… I guess we were wrong.

2013 Deck – Week 22

Our coastal sea-walls are fairly famous, built by the Dutch during their colonization of the area during the 1600’s and the 1700’s, and lasting all these years, protecting the land which they reclaimed from the sea (mainly Georgetown).

Whilst the walls keep the sea waters out, the Kokers (sluices) and pumps allow water accumulated in the drainage canals to be expelled out to the sea, the Kokers only work effectively if the tide is low, so the pumps are used to augment the Kokers, especially at high tide, but not exclusively.

While walking along the wall at Lusignan, I was passing one of the large pipes through which one of the pumps expel the water when I saw this scene.  🙂

Alone in the Crowd

This was the photograph I had in mind for last week’s Deck Photo, but then the horse-cart took over  🙂

I still find it amazing that in a crowded room or a public place full of people, I can be next to my wife, and feel as if we’re alone, just the two of us.  It was one of those things you read about in poems and novels but didn’t quite get until it happened to you.  For more than half of my life, that has been us, I can look into her eyes and we’d be alone wherever we were.  I look forward to many more years like that.

Well, I took this photograph, so it’s not of us, but you get the idea 🙂  Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
