Black and White Challenge:

Letters-E-or-F

~~~~~

A few years ago, 2014, to be precise…

 we had a day trip to Victoria Falls.

On our home journey,

at the Zimbabwe and Botswana border crossing

I thought I had lost my passport between

the Zimbabwe and Botswana check points.

After a five to ten minute delay…I found my passport

in my pocket (oops!)…we were on our way again.

  

Hardly had we commenced than we sighted this

family of elephants trying to find a break in the traffic

so they could get to the river for a drink.


Not one person thanked me for delaying our trip

so that we were able to capture this sight.  

All they could think of was me and my lost passport.  

One bloke among five women!!!

MGW…was leading the charge.  

I had no hope 😀  😀  😀

Fairy.

I was not sure what to use as a subject this week, until…

Fairy Penguins came to mind, however…

now, to be politically correct, they are known as Little Penguins.

 And then of course there is Port Fairy, where I used to

holiday with family and friends many decades ago.

Port Fairy is a fishing/tourist town and was named

by the crew of the whaler The Fairy in 1828.

In 1835 a whaling station was established

followed by a store in 1839.

Fishing boats still use the Moyne River as their

port of refuge from Bass Strait’s wild weather

and it was in the upper reaches of the Moyne

that I spent many hours swimming

before a swimming pool was constructed

in my home town in about 1966/67.

More history of Port Fairy can be found here.
