~~~~~~

LIft off on our flight over

the Okavango Delta.

Shadows on a boabab tree

in Botswana.

 

Made in Victoria.

 

Shadows that are no more.

 

A Kalahari Scrub Robin with an early morning shadow

much larger than the bird.

 

Fog tends to add a grey tone a landscape…

…whether it is a Black and White…

…or colour image.

Finally, the Moorabool Valley in its foggy glory

WeeklyPrompts-PC-Bridge

Bridges from all over…

Probably Australia’s best known bridge.

Auckland Harbour Bridge, New Zealand.

 

A small rural bridge in

New Zealand’s North Island.

Arriving by ferry in Melbourne…

…and cruising under

Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge.

 

 

A footbridge in Geelong’s

Balyang Sanctuary.

 

A one lane bridge in Botswana’s

Okavango Delta.

 

Finally a bridge from my primary years of schooling.

Whoever said some of the old methods

of teaching are wrong is incorrect.

 Or maybe I am getting older and cannot remember

what I had for breakfast, but can remember incidents

and conversations which occurred nearly 60 years ago,

as if it were yesterday.  🙂

Tuesday-PC-Wk191-Common

~~~~~~

While the African wildlife…

…soon lost its novelty value…

…never, was an animal sighting less than awesome.

 

 

Although uncommon visitors to our car,

the Yellow Billed Hornbill was

a common sight during our African Safaris.

I just drooled when I saw today’s Word of the Day.

Followers will know…

…that I am not short of…

 

…elephant photos.

Swimming elephants.

 

 

Elephants wandering past our accommodation.

Who knows how many passed by during the night.

 

 

Thirsty elephants on

The Okavango Delta.

Some Botswana campsite images.

One or two came really close

on their scavenger hunt.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Book

~~~~~

book

a written or printed work consisting of pages glued
or sewn together along one side and bound in covers.
“a book of selected poems”

When we moved off the farm…
…my library consisted of hard back book.

Then audiobooks began to fill my shelves.


After our African Safaris…

…we created some online books…

…using some of our favourite images.

Tuesday-PC-Wk167-Outdoors

~~~~~~

 

Some outdoor scenes

from Botswana.

Sunset at Lekhubu Island.

 

Our campsite at Lekhubu Island.

 

 

 

During a game drive from one of our Okavango Delta camps

we came across these elephants.

Our guides estimated we sighted

over 1,000 elephants that day.

Simply fascinating.

Our flight over The Okavango Delta…

…was equally as fascinating…

 

 

…as our game drives.

Many moons ago John Denver sang of

the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake’

in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

The only thing in common with those lyrics

and this image is the word serenity.

However, I like this  image/scene and

I love Rocky Mountain High and of have

An Evening with John Denver

playing while I am blogging.

 

 

A Corio Bay sunrise a few years ago.

 

The serenity of a Botswana sunset…

…and sunrise.

Finally, a blue hour image of Geelong’s

Western Beach area.

spicy

exciting or entertaining, especially through being mildly indecent

 

I guess ‘spicy’...

…would be an apt way of describing the decor

of the ladies and gents facilities at an Austrian restaurant.
