Tuesday-PC-Wk137_”Challenge”

~~~~~~

 

I’m late with my post this week because I did find it a challenge.Climbing the tower at the Australian Memorial

at Villers Bretonneux.   

After spending most of the day walking in heavy denim jeans

and sneakers in unseasonal mid twenties temperatures…


the last thing I felt like doing was climbing a staircase.

I thought maybe the arch would do…

However having attained that height…

the next level was my goal.

Imagine my horror upon reaching this level

only to find there were

still more steps to the summit.


I will admitted only twenty-three but the view was worth it.

I just cannot imagine that War has raged around this

tranquil farmland setting not once but twice.

Did you notice the bullet holes in the tower

from World War II aircraft.
