WeeklyPrompts-Warning

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

warning

advance notice of something.

Whenever trains are approaching level crossings

the lights flash red to warn drivers

to stop and give way.

Whenever crossing Queensland’s Daintree River

by ferry, it’s always a good idea to

follow instructions and

remain in your vehicle.

Afterall far better to follow those

instructions than feeding the crocodiles!

Probably a sign that is recognised

the world over.

Most countries have similar signs

warning motorists of local wildlife.

This one is from Botswana…

…while this one was found in Australia.

In 2012 we visited Cairns…

 

…and the Great Barrier Reef,  and…

…also the Daintree River.

Two years later we visited

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe

 

in 2016 during a European holiday…

…a visit to the Colosseum was on the agenda.

on the Bay.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Warning

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

warning

a statement or event that warns of something
or that serves as a cautionary example.
~~~~~

The cable ferry over the Daintree River.

No mention of the crocodile infested water

we were crossing.

With such a short crossing one wonders

why anyone would contemplate

leaving their vehicle

 



I thought an unusual sign on a path.

 


Khama Rhino Sanctuary,

Botswana.

I would have thought 50 metres too close.

However, anecdotal evidence tells of

silly tourists and wild animals.

 

 

It’s a wonder hubby was wanted

after daycare at London’s Flyinghorse

When eucalypts grow to to the road’s edge

these signs warn us of Koalas.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Lovely

~~~~~

lovely

very beautiful or attractive
~~~~~

In their world this face

may be described as lovely…

…however, not so in my world.

Most people think this is a lovely view.

 

In 1976 I thought this was a magnificent view

as I reached the top of Ayres Rock

(now known as Uluru).

Now that visitors can

no longer climb the Rock,

these images will only be

found on postcards, I suspect.
