These types of picnic tables are scattered

Pieces of driftwood make handy seating at

Torquay’s Surf Beaches.

Another version of the first image

 

Queensland’s Paronella Park provided

its guests with picnic tables and seating

made of stone, concrete and it’s quite possible

that the wood seats were preceded

by concrete slabs

 

I am reasonably certain that my Grandmother

who then owned our local post office

had a similar bench seat out the front

for locals to sit on while having

a breather and a chat.

the action of staying where one is or delaying action

Waiting for a wave.

 

Our pets are always waiting expectantly for a snack.

Our Vet waits a moment before he tells us

they need to lose weight.

An open-air wedding may be different but,

it is also subject to the elements of the minute.

 

The table cloth and the Bride’s and bridesmaid’s dresses

were billowing slightly as the breeze gusted.

Angry…

…seas at Torquay.

Near Torquay, I captured this wave as it broke

making it appear larger than it actually was.

This scarred African landscape depicts other Victoria Falls sites

created as the Zambezi River eroded away the rock face

of previous fall sites.

 

The Devil’s Cataract, in the foreground, and on

the Zimbabwean side of the Falls is said to be

where the current falls are beginning to erode

the rock face thereby creating a new Victoria Falls.

At 7cm per year, we will be visiting the current site

for many more years.

 

Mother nature appears to be holding the sun,

not wanting it to rise from the water.

A spectacular rural sunset.

I would really struggle to find any bikini-clad

sun lovers in Victoria this time of year.

However, I as in Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne

I’m sure there would be plenty

soaking up the sun as this group did.

outdoor fun

 existing, happening, or used outside,
not inside a building 

~~~~~

In pre-pandemic days I enjoyed…

…photographing surfers.

I say enjoyed because going to the beach…

…broke the 5-kilometre rule in force during the pandemic…

…which would have incurred…

…a fine of up to AUD$5,000 if caught breaching rules.

Come think of it there were probably very few surfers

who could legally surf during that period anyway.
