No End to the Adventures

I went hiking with my wife last Sunday; this was rare. Thus she asked what I had captured when stopping near a tree. I told her it was a gecko. I told her I took pictures of a babbler after catching up with her again.

I told her half of the truth.

(We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty and charm. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open).

I never told her the other half:

You see, these critters looked at me with their eyes wide open and without hesitation. I must be very special.

If you had told her the full truth, she might not let you go hiking again.

So sweet that your wife accompanied you with your hiking. I have always wanted to that but sad to say, I need to travel to other emirates to photograph such lovely critters like these.

I think if you had told your wife the whole truth, she might stay in the house and leave you alone with your hiking activities :))
