A Forest Road
The Tower appeared much closer than it was at the Australian War Memorial at Villers Bretonneux.
Upon arriving at the Tower there was approximately
120 steps to the top to capture
this magnificent view.
After an hour or so in a train a walk along
Melbourne’s Saint Kilda Pier
was just what the doctor ordered.
Neither a walk or hike.
Just letting Dubai’s,
Burj Al Arab’s escalator
do its thing.
Unfortunately we did need to walk up
the Vatican City’s
Spiral Stepless Staircase.
The Grand Staircase at
Paronella Park provided a
Rest and Recreation destination
for many allied soldiers fighting
in the Pacific.
This walk may no longer be available.
It as a very special Tiger Walk (with Sita)
at Queensland’s Dreamworld
before the Park opened each day.
MGW (second from right), No. 2 Son (left).
The other three in image
(one directly in front of No. 2 Son)
were Dreamworld staff.
We were all thinking what a wonderfully
quiet animal Sita was until we arrived
back at Tiger Island.
As we walked through the gate
Sita and an antagonist spotted each other.
Although 70-80 metres apart,
we were snapped out of our reverie,
as they both roared at each other in a way
that left us in no doubt that we had been
in very close proximity to a wild animal
for the past hour.
