As much a I enjoyed living on

the farm and farm life…

…as I approach my fiftieth birthday I discovered

that I was raising two boys who were not

at all interested in farm life.

The sudden death of my Father a week after my 50th

really finalised any decision regarding farming

till I dropped, or moving to Geelong.


While I could not live in the centre of any city

there are nice places on the outskirts

of most major business/shopping centres, 

such as Geelong.

The major draw card for us was that all services,

supermarkets, medical etc.,

are now only 15-20 minutes away

instead of 45 kilometres. 

And that is why we live, where we live.





a very large expanse of sea, in particular each of the main areas
into which the sea is divided geographically.

Not the best photo but this is the

Antarctic Ice Pack stretching

into the Southern Ocean.

Taken from our QANTAS 747

as we flew to Johannesburg in 2014.

Antarctica is surrounded by the Southern Ocean.

The Southern Ocean is formed where the southern ends

of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans meet.

All water south of the fiftieth parallel of latitude

is said to form the Southern Ocean.

Hopefully I will be able to

capture it again next year.
