My contribution for this week’s challenge…
On the Way
On January 4th, 2013 I drove Victoria’s
Great Ocean Road
with some Canadian friends
been on the road for half an hour
some 6 hours later…
the temperature was around 44 degrees Celsius
and the bitumen in the car park was melting
Note, everyone is hugging the shadows.
I have been down in the Gorge many times…
but that day was the first time
I wished I had not done so.
The heat was stifling.
Fortunately the return trip, via an inland highway
At the other end of the temperature gauge,
we sighted the Antarctica ice pack
while travelling to Africa last year
around the outskirts of Geelong.
At one stage I was one the way to the You Yangs,
but decided to leave the trip for another day.
I noticed this pigeon on a vacant lot across the road…
before swooping down for lunch and…
for a night out on the town.
