A drawing from my Mother-in-law’s school sketch book.
Her daughters did not know she had this until
after she passed away a couple of years ago.
And it seems only a few years ago that
London model Twiggy,
caused a furore at the Melbourne Cup
wearing a mini skirt two whole inches

Hemlines have certainly changed since 1965.
Fashion on the gold fields in mid 1800s.
Being married anywhere is now fashionable.
Bride’s dresses have changed considerably

Curved seating at Manly, a Sydney suburb.
A curve in the track allowed us to capture images

during our journey back to Vancouver.
Geelong’s Eastern Beach.
sun baking legs, and…
Then today we visited two of
New Zealand’s Waitomo Caves and I
