Travel Theme: Distance

My contribution for this week’s challenge.

My first photo was taken along the Great ocean Road.  In the middle distance, if you enlarge the photo, you can see the road as it winds its way around the point to the next town snuggled in a forest setting in the far distance.

I always wonder to what distant places these helicopters are flying.

Geelong Foreshore 11

Imagine a sunny day, a picnic, at a table under a gum tree, a cool breeze wandering in off the seas while yachts sail gently along the horizon in the distance.  Could life get any better?

Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Sea

~~~~~

I have very mixed feelings when it comes to the sea.  I love to watch it on a wild, cold, rough, day.

I do not like swimming in the ocean because of the salt and sand which takes forever to get rid of.  Particularly out of the car!!!

Don’t have any photos of waves pounding the shore on a wild day.  Unfortunately I do not have any photos of the sea at its best….wild, woolly, rough and cold.

All I have are some random photos taken during the year and while on holidays.

 This vessel was in Geelong’s Corio Bay, a few weeks ago.

I never did like snorkelling.  I think it would be an easy way to drown.  My experience on the Barrier Reef did nothing to enhance my feelings in this respect.

And where ever there is an ocean you will find an Oscar and Zelma.  No.  There is no rhyme or reason for giving the gulls names, except that I am feeling a tad weary after the weekend and usually when weary, silly things like this occur.  Oscar and Zelma popped into my mind and were not going to be replaced….by any other name.  I have since conferred with my son about these names.  He suggested changing Oscar to Wilfred.

While susceptible to cyclones the sea could not have been calmer along the Far North Queensland coast on this day.

Photos of the sea would not be complete without one from my favourite part of Victoria.  The Twelve Apostles is one of the State’s biggest tourist attractions these days.  If you ever do visit, the little dot in the sky will gladly take you for a joy flight if you have the inclination….and some hard-earned dollars.
