The unique adventures of a fluffy bird in the wild West Highlands of Scotland.

Install Theme
The West Highland summer was even wetter than usual, if that were possible … But it was Sunday, so Algy decided to have some rest and relaxation notwithstanding the weather. He dangled his foot in a convenient puddle, and let his fancy roam:
          Ever let the Fancy roam,          Pleasure never is at home:          At a touch sweet Pleasure melteth,          Like to bubbles when rain pelteth;          Then let winged Fancy wander          Through the thought still spread beyond her:          Open wide the mind’s cage-door,          She’ll dart forth, and cloudward soar.
[Algy is quoting the opening of the poem Fancy by John Keats.]
