SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Seeking-Warmth

 

~~~~~

 

In early April

Melbourne looked

cold and gloomy.

Temperatures have not improved

as we head into winter.

This time last year we were preparing

for a Canadian/Alaskan June.

The weather was beautiful.

Even falling snow on the Columbia Icefields

did not dampen our spirits.

 

Although it was September 2013,

…this hyena greeted us as we left our camp for

a long day of travelling in heat forecast

to reach 39 degrees Celsius.

We are nearly ready to begin a twelve month

countdown to our next African Safari.

Considering our destinations range from 25-28 degree south,

I am already dreaming of warmer weather and sunshine.

Geelong’s latitude is 38 degrees south

so we should be quite a bit warmer.

Although no photos we also had

a family brunch on Saturday morning

to celebrate Mother’s Day.

While we cruised Alaska’s…

…Chena River last year…

Some of the local huskies enjoyed a cool down alongside us

after demonstrating how easily they could pull

a four wheel motor bike.

There seems to be an element of risk

in everyday living these days.

However, it is not every day that one gets…

to pat a cheetah…

…although she sowed some sign

of not being happy with one traveller.

Standing under a 6 ton 30-year-old elephant

has some risk involved.

The Whistler-Blackcomb Mountains

Peak2Peak Gondola Ride

has travellers sailing at a minimum

of 1,400 feet above ground

with only a piece of wire holding things together.

Admittedly a rather larger piece of wire.

 

The riskiest part of any flight

is take off and landing.

 

 

And flying over Alaska’s wilds

one always hopes the risk of

engine failure is minimal.

Blue…my favourite colour.

Whether it is the blue skies of

Far North Queensland, or…

…flying into the Alaskan wild blue yonder

in our blue plane.
