Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Rats. Another Sony clip that I can't open ...

GREAT picture, though!!

Bettie

Oh Noes! - you can sing along to Island in the Sun by Harry Belafonte without viewing the stills whilst I try and find you something else. Fingers crossed

How about this Cook Islands Dance - Rakahanga


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Yep -- that worked. Nice one, too! And yet another nice pciture as well ...

Off home (finally) now. Phew!!

jeepers - midnight - you are Cinderella :O((

Wish you were close enough to call in for some friendly vicissitudes


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Oh ... just think of me as one of those dancing princesses from that other fairy tale -- fingers dancing on the keyboard, that is! :)

BookLovingLady I noticed Gould's Book of Fish: A Novel in Twelve Fish (no. 86) on this list. I wouldn't quite consider Tasmania 'desert islands/tropical and exotic island location', beautiful as it is...


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Well, it's an island, and from a European perspective it IS a rather exotic location ...


message 9: by Kim (new)

Kim Even from an Australian perspective, Tasmania can be a pretty exotic location!

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Wow. Indeed ... beautiful picture!

Couldn't agree more :-) But I didn't vote for any books set on Tasmania though (like Gould's Book of Fish), as I doubt this is what the creator of the list had in mind when she said "tropical and exotic" :-0
