FEATURED POST 11 ... 'KAREEM'S PLACE, BEQUIA' SVG


TrailSpots continues to feature all-time popular posts.  Feature Post 11 ... 'Kareem's Place ...' is up next!

Read an extract from the post, then go find it @ ... http://www.trailspots.com/2015/03/kareems-place-bequia-adpost-2.html.  
Kareem started his trade at the age of ten years.  He had owned many aquariums which also provided inspiration, when he was not in the sea. He paints flowers, landscapes and seascapes and he obviously has a strong preference for the latter.  
 Here is a preview of Bertino Doyle aka Kareem, and his art.  




 The featured post 'Kareem's Place ...' can also be found in the side-bar FP section, along with several earlier FPs!  Check them out!

AS CANADA CELEBRATES ...


TrailSpots(T-Spots!) has been sharing spot-pics of events in Ottawa as Canada celebrates 150 ...
#TrailSpots

Here we share two sculptures from the 'Canada Mosaic 150', on display at Jarques Cartier Park, in Quebec, just next door to Ottawa.

The first is a topiary of puffins. The puffin is the official bird of Newfoundland and Labrador since 1992.   They are also known as sea parrots due to their unique coloring patterns.

This second topiary is an image of Glen Gould's piano.  Glen Gould (1932 -1982) was a famous Canadian classical pianist who was celebrated for his modern interpretations of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

The huge topiary display is a horticultural event show-casing the art of mosaic-culture, blended with a range of iconic Canadian features. 
It is a whole year of celebration!

'PIC-BACKS': TWO LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS

The archive always offers something on the browse.  Just enough to create a pleasant flash-back mini-post on an earlier trail.

If you love light-houses, then these two and their surroundings might hit a spot!
In fact, I'll definitely be adding more lighthouses to future trails!
Lighthouses ... full of history and mystery!

First up!  North Base Lighthouse in Grand Turk, TCI, with its natural limestone environs and perfect ocean/sky views ...










Second up!  The Toco Lighthouse, Trinidad, with its new tech look and 360 views ...
