Oh you lucky thing, Sorrento is fabulous and so is the area. Have a great time and don’t forget to take your camera Lisl.
Lisl: I am taking two, Chad - I have a new untied one, so may need a back-up

Have a great trip and by the time you are back these reeds are cut...
Lisl: I am sure they will be, Astrid! Back home again now
I love the contraption, Lisl. We see other contraptions here for dredging and cleaning out the canals, which delight me to no end.

I know you will be in heaven these next days, so thoroughly enjoy yourself and bring us back many wonderful specimens.
Lisl: Thank you, Ginnie - when you wrote your comment I was one minute into the air
Very good! Enjoy your trip, Lisl!
Lisl: Thank you, Elizabeth - back now
Au boulot dans un bel environnement !
Lisl: Unfortunately a very noisy one!
I like very much the light and the reflections of this photo
Lisl: Thank you, Marie - I hoped to get a bit of movemenet, too

I'll take your word for it, that the operator is a man smile Enjoy the trip.
Lisl: He really was! Being sexist, this is probably a man's job. Thanks for your good wishes - I am back now
i am quite fascinated by this equipment, Lisl. i wonder if it a product of its own or perhaps assembled in a nearby workshop by some enterprising mechanic?
Lisl: I have seen similar on other watery nature reserves - I think there is a market for them, Ayush

Lisl: Thank you, Cherie - we stayed on the Sorrento Peninsular at Capo, and explored the mountains and coast for flowers and birds
Enjoy your trip, Lisl - I guess the spring flowers will be quite something!
Lisl: They were out of this world, Tom - now I have a lot of homework to do with photos, lists and flora book
he has a big job on his hands Lisl... good composition....petersmile
Lisl: Thanks, Peter - reeds do grow very quickly
