The closest I have to a vampire image is…

…this one of the Twilight series of books

tucked away on the back of a shelf.

Book Review-Divine-Justice

Divine Justice

(Camel Club #4)

by

David Baldacci

 

 

Divine Justice  by David Baldacci is another in the Oliver Stone/John Carr series.  Divine, a town in the United States of America in which Oliver Stone finds himself, after stepping in to end a three against one brawl.

Divine is a very small town but appears to be prospering because locals are employed at a nearby super maximum security prison and a coal mine.  However….are these industries the only source of income?

Shortly after arriving in town Stone hears of some unexpected deaths in the town.  And then physical violence and bodies seem to follow Oliver around.  This body count and violence is only from the Divine bad guys.  The government has its own bad guys who think nothing of adding to these statistics.

The only negative I find with series is that the hero is almost super human and no matter the odds barely gets a hand laid on him during a brawl.  It would slow the story if we had to wait for him to heal, wouldn’t it?

As with other David Baldacci novels this one was well paced at no time did I feel the story line was slowing.  However, while reading Divine Justice, I was also listening to another book which would make a glacier appear to be breaking the sound barrier.

I enjoy this genre and David Baldacci’s novels

and think

Thank you Amy for the seascape theme this week.

I have always lived only about 25 miles

from the coast, however, it is

only since moving off the farm

that I have begun to photograph

coast lines in all their splendour.

My first seven images were all taken near Torquay.

Torquay  is near Bell’s Beach …

…the scene of the Rip Curl Pro…

Surf carnival each year.

Rough seas.

Torquay wipe out

 

Anyone who has visited

Victoria’s Great Ocean Road

will probably also…

…have visited Lochard Gorge,

named after the ship Loch Ard

which sank in rough seas

leaving only two survivors.

This day, January 4, 2013 the temperature

was 44 degrees and it was the only time

I did not feel like descending into the Gorge.

I did so only to accompany one of my

Canadian friends however the heat

was so oppressive that I ventured only to shade.

It was about then that I realised we

were no longer fit 25 year-olds.

 

Lochard Gorge is only…

…about ten minutes from…

…the Twelve Apostles, and…

…at the western end of the Great Ocean Road drive.

It took us until 3 PM to arrive at the Twelve Apostles

I was so pleased to use the inland highway

to return home in around two hours. 


Closer to home again is Victoria’s Surf Coast…

…provides some sunrise photography and seascapes…

…and Point Lonsdale Lighthouse.
