A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Signs-of-Spring

~~~~~~

Nancy, I hope you don’t mind me changing

the title of my post this week.

While you are commencing Autumnal

weather we are experiencing just the opposite…

as this morning’s shots of our weeping cherry attest.

Today, Saturday, September 23 is forecast

to reach around 27 degrees Celsius and

we are enjoying it because

the tomorrow’s forecast is for

wintry like conditions and only

a fourteen degree top  temperature.

In the summer of 1989….

I created this kennel from the meagre scraps

of material which came with our farm.

It last until the summer of 2016.

Two new dogs meant two new kennels.

 

 Taji was introduced to hers…

and she appeared to give it…

 

the nose of approval.

She promised Candi that she would not

use hers until Candi had one, also.

Then Maggie had a look around and

decided she wanted new digs also.

so it was that we had three home-made

kennels being occupied.

This is Candi’s kennel.

Yesterday, as on other days when Taji is tied up

and Candi off the chain,

they snuggle up for their midday nap together.

Recreation varies from person to person.

I used to think of this as recreation when in my late teens, early twenties. 

Cycling can be a sport or recreational.

For me, it was always recreational.

 

Our safari guide had his own form

of recreational activity.

The twenty-minute power nap!

I managed to capture a couple of half decent photos…

of this sport/recreational activity at Torquay…

during a morning in which I was

pursuing my own recreational activity.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Literary-Reference

~~~~~~

My first thoughts were of Top Gun.

But Google and MGW disagreed…and Google lost.

True to form MGW suggested another true literary piece.

 

Even though only taken a week ago…

 

I had not thought of these images for this challenge.

 

This cow and calf put on a good show at

Warrnambool’s, Logans Beach

Southern Right Whale Nursery

and were far more relaxed

than Moby Dick ever was.

The New Zealand Soldier Memorial, at…

Messines, Belgium.

This memorial is in the centre of town and

is a tribute to all soldiers of the

New Zealand Division

who  participated in

the Battle of Messines Ridge

in 1914.
