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

Great-Ocean_Road_1193We were heading west to Lochard Gorge and had

been on the road for half an hour

before we arrived here.

some 6 hours later…

the temperature was around 44 degrees Celsius

and the bitumen in the car park was melting

under the weight of tourist traffic.

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

was only about two hours.

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.
