~~~~~

One of the first

Australian designed and made

Holdens.

A more contemporary designed vehicle. 

Although I don’t know to what

as our car making industry has just closed.   

Unless it is a reference to Holden’s parent company

General Motors.

An external internal corridor at

Mt Sheba Resort,

Melbourne’s

It’s certainly an internal passage of sorts

with doors leading to rooms

which we called shops.

One could be forgiven for wondering how that will ever fly.

 

An added blast or three, of heat changes things.

 

 

Soon our balloon his open, vertical

and still taking on heat.

 

With gondola loaded,

and we were airborne over Melbourne.

30th Wedding Anniversary

Four years ago we experienced

a Hot Air Balloon lift off for our

thirtieth Wedding Anniversary.

The Northern White Crowned Shrike

was captured while visiting

Sausage Tree Safari Camp

Sausage Tree Camp

forms part of

South Africa’s

Greater Kruger National Park.

The African Harrier Hawk posed for us

for a few minutes before it thought it wiser…

…to take to the air as gracefully…

..as it could.

Both birds were sighted

while staying at
