Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Sounds like a great way to celebrate a birthday. beth. I use any excuse I can to get back to nature.

My only visit to Canada - British Columbia nearly 20 years ago - gave me an ineradicable sense of a mighty openness unknown in the British Isles for a thousand years or more. Back comes that sense with this account and these pictures. Maybe one day I'll make it back across the water to experience it first hand again.

What a wonderful landscape.I'm another geography and geology lover,so really enjoyed reading this and looking at the photos.

Kia ora Beth,
A belated Hari Huritau to you, and so glad to see the beautiful way you spent your day. I love the mosses and beech trees. Very New Zealand like. Have a great day!
Aroha,
Robb
