The church still stands on Geelong’s Moorabool Street.

Alas, I think the tree is no longer and the church

is surrounded by used cars.

salt white

Though some salts are coloured (pink.. grey… etc…)

this is due to the inclusion of other elements within the salt.

Pure sodium and chloride crystals which compose salt

will appear and therefore make salt appear white

When we visited Botswana’s

Lekhubu Island,

in 2014…


…we spent several hours driving across

Sua Pan, which forms part of the

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

Makgadikgadi Pans are the largest salt pans…

in the world, covering an area

of over 30,000 square km.

paths trails

a path through a countryside, mountain, or forest area,

often made or used for a particular purpose.

 
~~~~~~

These track in Sauage Tree Safari Camp grounds…

…were reminiscent of many tracks I had travelled

on my way to work in New South Wales. 

Once off the road I was faced with criss crossing trails

and only felt better about it when my

travelling companion said

…don’t worry they all lead to the (Wool) Shed.

 

After several hours seemingly following

old wheel ruts through Botwswana’s

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans…

 

…we eventually arrived at our destination,

Lekhubu Island

disappear suddenly and completely.

The Kalahari Scrub-Robin was putting on a show,

so I decided to capture some of it.

After careful focussing, I pushed the shutter.

When I inspected the photo a shadow and legs

was all I had captured

The Horned Dungbeetle can pull up to 1141 times

its own body weight which is the equivalent of

an average man lifting two fully-laden

18-wheeler trucks.

 

Baby Elephant is the one that gets me smiling.

It was definitely telling us where to go

with its newfound trunk control.

 

Our resident New Holland Honeyeater mum (I think) was

giving me a right telling off when I captured this image.

Since then, and more likely,

I think she may have been talking

to wayward offspring.

This little one is our adored granddaughter.

She only has around nine weeks before

she will have to share the limelight with a sibling.

Another 8 weeks thereafter she will

have a cousin…all being well in both camps.
