Even though it was a cold wet Saturday,

I decided to stop in at Geelong’s renowned Pakington Street
pako_0010During the warmer months this street is packed with people…
pako_0009meeting for breakfast…
pako_0001coffee and a light snack…

pako_0007or simply shop…

pako_0014for real estate, tattoos, toys or stories.
pako_0020And then have coffee with friends and family
pako_0011While taking these photos a silver car whizzed by, tooting/honking its horn at me.
pako_0018It shoomed into the parking space just behind me.

 ‘Twas our son.

pako_0033We love him dearly…

especially as he shouted coffee and macaroons!

Weekly Photo Challenge-Summer-Lovin

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Summer Lovin’.

~~~~~

Not feeling very summery this time of year and needed to dig through the archives.

beach_0509Ballarat is about an hour or so from Geelong and where

gold was discovered in the 1800s..hence the name.

beach_0503Even though these photos were taken in late February, there is only a

small crowd around the foreshore…a bit cool I think.

Also the school year was under way.

beach_0512

Usually no parking spaces around here…

~~~~~

beach_0520Eastern Beach is the most popular beach in Geelong and

only about two or three blocks walk from the central business centre
~~~~~
beach_0523

The semi-circle is known as The Promenade and is packed with

families using its relative safety to cool down during hot weather.

 Word of the Week Challenge…

Red

~~~~~

For this week’s Red challenge I paid a visit to Geelong’s famed Pakington Street…

red_0020purely in the hope that I might find something red for this challenge.

~~~~~

red_0012The street seemed to have red everywhere…
red_0013or at least that’s what my eyes were telling me.red_0022MGW told me these cooking utensils are red.

red_0019Red signs everywhere including the traffic light which was a

bright red but appears to be orange or amber in this photo.

red_0025Almost, finally, a bright red bow tie…

red_0028a perfect addition for a Christmas display.  But, in July?
