Word-of-Day-Challenge-Holiday

Not sure if today’s challenge is referring to Christmas or a holiday/vacation

I’m opting for the latter.

This year we had planned a holiday to Canada and Alaska.

We also planned to visit the huskies

on Mendenhall Glacier at Juneau

 However, thanks to Number 1 Son ‘popping the question’

last New Year’s Eve we had two unplanned visits to New Zealand.

The engagement party weekend in February was hardly a holiday

but we had two weeks in New Zealand later in the year

prior to his/their wedding.

As soon as the latter excursion was thought of

it did not take long for the Hobbit Movie set

to come onto our radar and a visit was duly arranged.

Bicycles and Motorcycles

We first noticed the high usage of bicycles in Brugge.    

While in Amsterdam the bicycle flat

provides free parking for 2,500 bicycles.

The Cadel Evans January Road Race in Geelong’s suburbs.

The Peloton.

Motorcycles and shouldered television cameras

beaming the action to the world.

Riders look relaxed but are travelling

at a phenomenal speed.

A few weeks ago, in the wee hours of the morning

we were awoken by the sound of barking dogs

and powerful lights torch flashing in our window.

This was followed by red and blue flashing lights

circling our block every five minutes or so.

Still not one hundred percent sure what was going on

except that someone was where they shouldn’t have been

at that hour of the day.

Hope you enjoyed.
