ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " R "



I would be REMISS if I didn't REMINISCE about our safari in the RIFT Valley of Kenya.
The RADIATING RAYS of the early morning sunRISE made our team feel REVITALIZED.



I love the RAMBUNCTIOUS baby RUMINANT giraffes. These are called RETICULATED giraffes for the pattern on their hides.
If you enlarge this picture you can RECOGNIZE the drying umbilical cord coming from the newborn giraffe on the RIGHT.



Now for a RANDOM change of pace.
I thought the RAGGED ROPE dumped like RUMMAGE on the ROUGH RED brick made a RATHER interesting composition.



I REALIZE I have shown pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge before but sometimes its fun to REHASH favorite topics again.
This shot shows the REFLECTION of our RECENT RONDEVOUS at Fort Point for a family REUNION.
Be sure to enlarge the pictures to get REAL detail.
Go to Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar to see the vast RANGE of
" R " choices people have posted.

Great R words, the early morning sunlight with the waiting cars is very atmospheric and who can resist a coil of rope.

MedaM said...

Wonderful post; great vocabulary lesson for me :-) Photos are great. I like them all.

Dave said...

Sue, that reflection of the Golden Gate bridge in the window was a clever shot. Liked the other photos too. The giraffe's necks seemed very short but perhaps it was because they were so new and young? - Dave

Ruth said...

And the Golden Gate is Red!

Your photos are quite wonderful, I especially love the first one.

And my word verification: redno.

Reader Wil said...

Your photos are very good. It's clever of you to find so many R words.

Anna said...

Nice post with many well-chosen R-words and lovely shots.
Best wishes,
Anna
