Awesome Easter Sunday

 

This year without any ties to the household on Easter Sunday we decided to eat out for breakfast before Easter Sunday church.  MGW duly phoned number two and wished him/them, a Happy Easter.  Number one entered the property market a few months ago and number two decided to move in/out and share the expenses.  Cheap rent, I think he called it.  Couldn’t have been charged much less than he was at home.  After he was told that we were eating out for breakfast he thought it an ‘AWESOME’ idea to join us, particularly when MGW said she would pay!!

I am sure he is exclaiming ‘Awesome’ in the above photo.  

We were greeted by one very sleepy and another even sleepier off-spring at 0815.  The sleepiness soon vanished at the thought of free pancakes courtesy of MGW….or TGM (Their Good Mother).  I did hear it proclaimed that today should be the start of a family tradition…Easter Sunday breakfast together.  However, I think next year it was also suggested that MacDonald’s would have to do without our patronage.  But one never knows.

As our Easter Sunday draws to a close, my world time zone map tells me that it is early morning in Great Britain and nearly mid-night on North America’s west coast.  So, I think that is close enough to wish all a Happy Easter for 2014.

Mountain Mist

mist_0188This was the view into the Grampians at Hall’s Gap last Thursday.  It was damp but beautiful weather after nine years of relatively dry weather.  Hard to believe climates can vary so much in a relatively short distance.  Afterall it is only about 2 degrees of the earth’s circumference between point A and point B.

Floral Friday Challenge.

My Floral Friday may not be of cottage garden flowers…however, after having heard about this front yard for sometime now, I thought it was still stunning.

wetland_0179Although the wetland was a bit on the dry side when this photo was taken, it was still a ‘wow’ moment.

wetland_0181And while we were still in a ‘wow’ frame of mind, another visitor made its presence known.

wetland_0178If the first two did not impress, the big picture should.  With mist still hanging around the mountains it could only be described as inspiring.  What better view for an artist at work.

A variety of shots this week.

Dwarf Mongoose and their (relatively) big wide round eyes.

sundownersN1053When all wildlife viewing became too much for ‘us tourists’ we would stop and gather round a hastily set up picnic table and be treated to tea or coffee and munchies.  This gathering, during our evening game drive, was referred to as ‘sundowners‘, for obvious reasons.  However, the morning coffee break was never called ‘sun uppers:-)

Which Way Challenge-14-Wk-8

~~~~~

Some signs which I saw while waiting for my car to be serviced.

DSC_0487Did not have a clue what the Max was/is.

DSC_0489The shots were taken near Geelong’s Deakin University, Waterfront Campus

DSC_0493However, this sign sort of gave me an idea,

although not sure when happy hour is or when the discount applies.

DSC_0495

And then there was the main door.

DSC_0498It all came together.

After our near three hour drive to Halls Gap…

sign_0161last Thursday…

menu_0166we decided to stop in at Base Camp for a coffee.

menu_0157On the menu were Sexy Burgers…expensive Sexy Burgers…or am I getting old?

menu_0158And as the only country in the world, so “they” say, to eat our national emblem, it was only appropriate that there was a kangaroo pizza available to nourish the cockles of your heart.

morvell_0487After coffee we ventured on to Steve Morvell’s Studio to catch up with Steve and admire his art work.

We succumbed to temptation and finally purchased our safari souvenir.

We love Steve’s artwork and his love for wildlife.
