wakes

The Holland America Line vessel,

the Noordam…

 

…left a long trailing wake as it cruised

the inside passage to Alaska.

 

 

A much smaller vessel the Hygeia

appeared to leave a turbulent wake behind

as it cruised Geelong’s

Corio Bay.

A gesture of friendship?  I think not!

Especially as her parents were

asking her to stop so

I could get my shot.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Shiver

e~~~~~~~

~~~~~

shiver

shake slightly and uncontrollably

as a result of being cold,

frightened, or excited

~~~~~

A few minutes in the Forty Below chamber

and most of us were of the opinion

that it was not as cold as expected.

I daresay a few minutes more,

would have produced an outbreak

of the shivers though.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Cruise

e~~~~~~~

~~~~~

cruise

a voyage on a ship or boat taken for pleasure
or as a holiday and usually calling in
at several places.
~~~~~

Our cruise up the inside passage

to Glacier Bay was as quiet as expected.

The only surprise being some

rougher water on the first day.

A Rope Fence…

…designed to keep tourists off the grass.

Skagway

Alaska

 

An educated guess tells me this fence

is in the vicinity of 40-50 years old.

 

A temporary fence to contain two young pups

after their trip to the vet. 

Maggie was quite disgusted at being

contained as well.

Looking Through-the Gate of Violence

An automatically opening/closing gateway

in Hamilton Gardens

New Zealand

 

 

Strainer posts support the fence tension

and often a gate as well.

Gateways like this one lead
