While Waiting for the Gate to Open i.e. Learning Patience
I was staying in a gated community and had to park my car outside. Since I didn't have a beeper, I had to wait for someone to come in or out. While waiting, I decided to make good use of my time. What better way to wait than by doing what I enjoy most. Take pictures! The first good shot I found was a stately Royal Palm, humbly surrounded by coconut palms. Then I spotted this wonderful coconut palm and decided to count how many fronds it had. To my surprise, I counted up to 30 fronds. I had no idea it would have so many. Then I sat next to that dwarf Palmetto and was sheltered by the shade of its fan like fronds. I am sure it made for a funny sight. Then in front of me was this fushia Bougainvillea(Trinitaria)! Before I knew it a car drove up and my camera shots time had expired and I was on my way.
What a great way to kill time!
