As the Crow flies...

"As the crow flies" is an idiom referencing the shortest route between two points. The phrase is attested in print as early as 1800. Source. In measuring the extent of pollution of a plant/factory, All distances are to be measured as the crow flies...

This thought came to me seeing this crow perched on the boat...
