Swarovski Fantasy Land of Optics

Once upon a time, in a land far far away (Cranston, Rhode Island) there was a magical place full of green treasures. These spectacular vision-enhancing devices (binoculars and scopes) were the envy of all who came to search for them.

Only a small group of birder-bloggers survived the grueling trek to make it into the Great Swarovski Dragon lair. Corey from 10,000 Birds, Sharon the Birdchick, Julie Zickefoose, Ben from 600 Birds, John the Born Again Bird Watcher, and Helena from Adventures of Bird Girl along with yours truly, were the last ones standing in our quest.

Go ahead, you can drool…

When we arrived in the lair of optics awaiting repairs, we attempted to distract Gatekeeper Gail, to no avail.

Why, oh why must you tempt us with such treasures?

I managed to find this crystal prism that came from a pair of Swarovski EL bins. But somehow I think it held a much more magical power. Perhaps life birds were in my near future…

The land of optics is not for the faint-hearted but the visit was well worth it. The Swarovskians are a great people and showed it with their superb hospitality and high-quality optics.

Coming soon if I can ever get done sifting through photos: digiscoping on the cape of Massachusetts!

  1. Cool! BTW, thanks for sharing the URL for Dakota’s blog. I popped over for a visit. For some reason that post on your blog wouldn’t load for me, though. It kept aborting.

  2. Hmmm… don’t know why the link wasn’t working to Dakota’s blog. Here it is again: link
