Our recent visits to London and Canada

were my second visit

to both destinations

The major difference between 1976

and recent times were the crowds.

Lake Louise was, from memory,

virtually deserted back then.

Twenty-first century Lake Louise

was so crowded it was difficult

to capture a tourist free image.

London was similar, although it was…



…the traffic and overall crowded streets

which surprised me.

full of incessant or frantic activity.

While my old woolshed,

along with most woolsheds…

…for around 48 weeks every year,

resembles a morgue, as in this image.


However, I can assure you that under that old roof,

when shearing was in full swing,

hectic would not adequately describe

the activity taking place.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:   Hectic





Two weeks ago was our wedding anniversary.

Usually to celebrate we venture out for dinner,

or over recent years…

…something a bit different.

For example…a dawn hot air balloon ride

over Melbourne,

dinner on the Q-Train

(a tourist train operating for lunch and dinner),

and last year we were back in

Melbourne for High Tea.

This year it was a home delivered meal

prepared by our local pub.

And it tasted mighty good.
