An Island in a Sea of Words

After five weeks of blogging, I have a guilty confession to make.  I love when I find a blog where stories are told in pictures.  No words necessary.

When I stumbled upon Gabbies Island, the whole idea tickled me.  An Island, in a sea of words, and in the midst of it, Wordless Wednesday, where a photo says it all.   Thanks, Gabbie (some pretty cute pics there, too) 🙂

This is not to diminish all the faithful writers out there.  It’s just that – sometimes, we need to take a breath.

So, this week, I thought I would take you for a visit to my own special Isle of Quiet.

This was a couple of years ago, when I went with my folks on a ten day trip to the East Coast of Tasmania.

Approaching Port Arthur Peninsula.

 A place of grim convict stories…

Little House on the Prairie.

I mean – literally.  This is Dad – watching the DVD on my laptop!

Approaching Coles Bay.

No words necessary…

Some local wildlife…

(no family resemblance whatsoever)

A place to find the Quiet.

Where do you go to find the Quiet?  Is it a special place, or something more abstract?  Please share with us 🙂

    Of course there’s a Free street on the Isle of Quiet! 🙂 Love these types of posts too. Thanks Alarna.

    This is a wonderful post, Alarna. I love photo essays, too. Gosh, I should dig out some pics of hubby’s and my trip to Hawaii a few years ago. Thanks for the reminder! I love the title for this post! Perfect!

      Thanks Lynn 🙂 Hawaii – well, there’s an island worth visiting! Would love to see a post about that! I just realised the other day I have all these neglected photos sitting there, so why not share them 🙂

        I’m glad you had a special time with your parents. When we were children, our parents would be told, enjoy them while you can because the day will come when they will leave you. Now it’s our friends telling us the same about our parents.

      No problems at all – there is no late in the blogosphere as far as I’m concerned! Thank you for your New Year wishes – I am only just now back from holidays, so I am catching up. Sending you love, peace and happiness for the year ahead 🙂
