Nativity Scene of Shock and Horror with Feral Bunnies

The Nativity Scene pictured here, at the entrance to an Eco Park near our home, has been a pleasant sight over the Christmas season. Closer scrutiny has, however, also turned it into a source of considerable amusement.

There can be no doubt that the intention was for Joseph to reflect awe and wonder. That went wrong, somehow, and what resulted is unmistakeably shock and horror!

The neighbourhood free-range rabbits reflected on the first of the month in earlier posts are still, against all the odds, surviving and thriving. This picture was taken in a drive-by today. Somehow they are managing to cope month after month with a fair amount of traffic, a lot of large and ferocious cats, kids and dogs of all kinds that get free of their properties on occasion, and the local population of kites and hawks.

Yet another evening meal at the Yacht Club, this time a treat from our guest departing for Germany tomorrow. A lovely evening where we got to eat outside without any storms attacking us, and the grandkids had a swim (of course).
