experience

practical contact with and observation of facts or events
 

A few years ago My Good Wife decided that we would

take a Hot Air Balloon ride over Melbourne

to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

 

It did eventuate on our second try….the first time

being cancelled at 0345 the morning of the event

due to higher than wanted winds.

Ever since with the exception of COVID years,

it has been a wedding anniversary experience 

 

Earlier this year our experience was a day trip to

Craigs Hut which was featured

in the 1980-81 movie

The Man From Snowy River

starring

Tom Burlinson and Kirk Douglas

At 1450 m (4757 feet) above sea level, even in early April

warm clothing was a must.

pinnacle

the most successful point;
the culmination.

After walking up a gentler slope behind me,

as much as I wanted to take in

the 360-degree view from

the pinnacle of Mt Stirling

I decided to forgo this walk

as the wind and asthma style

breathing had got the better of me.

The Bowl

Mt Stirling

1725 metres or 5659 feet above sea level.

A few metres in front of me is the brink of a steep slope

that forms one side of the area known as The Bowl.

The silvery-grey flora, down in The Bowl,

are Snow Gums that were burned

in bushfires about ten years ago.

Commemorating firing of

The First Shot of World War 1,

100 years earlier, from

Point Nepean National Park,

Portsea,

August 5th,

2014.

And now the world is nearly on the brink of a third World War
