Time and Travel!

Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time,
which every day produces,
and which most men throw away,
but which nevertheless
will make at the end of it
no small deduction from the life of man.

The world is a great book,
of which they who never stir from home read only a page.

What mode of transportation would you have chosen? 
I find myself torn between the Donkey and the bicycles. Regardless, what an incredible weekend. Did you use your time by travelling?

  1. For me, it would definitely have been the boat! This weekend I mostly work. I have to catch a bus to work and I just know there are way better forms of transport than that! I while away my time on the bus with a book or my knitting though, so it's all good!

  3. I do miss our biker days (a little) so I guess the bikes would be my choice (motorcycles.)

    Great theme and quotes today my friend. xo

  4. I would go with the donkey in a cart or that bigger Mule for a ride. Looked like beautiful blue skies all around :)

    1. Oh and that kayak on the ground in front of the mule pen I would take s spin in too!

  5. #1 bicycle for me. But then I went out of town this past weekend to do a bicycle ride...so that was a bit obvious a choice.

    #2 would be a sea kayak (the inflatable open boat would have to do for a kayak in your pics).

    #3 would be the donkey, assuming it was amenable to carrying a load.

  6. Whoa- no motorcycles for me! That kayak looks like it would be about my speed.

  7. Ah! Time on the water would be my choice!

    No travels here this week-end.

  9. I'd be on the bicycle, though I would be willing to see if the donkey would let me ride. :-)

  13. Hello everyone we drove our old pickup onto the ferry crossed over to an island then drove to an auction.
    What else would a Hero and his lady do while searching for those elusive ladders:) We needed to be prepared. Missed the auction as we took our time to enjoy the views but so worth the travel time. It was a fun day together. Hug B

  14. Well, Saturday I cleaned a big closet, so didn't go anywhere. But boy! I sure felt good when the job was finished. ;)

    Sunday afternoon I traveled by car to a couple of favourite marshes to check out the wildlife there. It was not a long drive and it felt great to be out in the fresh air.

  15. I think I would walk so I could really enjoy all the beauty.

  16. I think the donkey. Don't know why- but it just appeals to me!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Glad you had a great weekend! I'd choose the donkey :)

  18. If I wasn't so crippled up I would be heavily tempted to try out one of those motorcycles.

  19. B,

    Sorry to hear you missed out on the auction but I would have preferred to sight see. Beautiful pictures of a beautiful place.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think I would be safest on the donkey!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Donkeys are too 'high maintenance' for me! LOL!! I do love a nice motorcycle ride though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Bicycle for sure! As long as there as no hills (haha) I could ride a bike all day. Stop to rest, have a meal, then ride some more! My next BIG mode of transportation will be airplane!!!! I'm so excited. Watch my blog Sept. 4!

  26. Somebody I knew once told me that they found it hard to choose between a holiday in a gypsy caravan (with horse) or in a barge floating down the UK canals. Both won't be hurried so you HAVE to sit back and let it happen. Hard for us in this busy life! Joan
