One of my favorite birds to check in on at The National Aviary is this blue parrot. I call her Polly not knowing if it is male or female. Truly a beautiful animal and I can envision her sitting on Captain Kidd’s shoulder.
This is the first time I managed to obtain a decent image of her. She is crafty and knows how to hide.
This doorway once led to the inner secure part of Bruges Belgium. The town centre was fortified with walls and on the other side of this door was the original home of the Beguines, a religious order dedicated to helping the sick and injured. The Beguines were relocated to a different part of the town in the 1700’s. The area is now used for low cost hosting for the elderly.
