My favourite places.

Locally it has to be Griffin Gully Pier

over looking Geelong’s

Corio Bay.

I missed out on visiting Butchart Gardens in 1976.

The wait was long but certainly worth it

when we visited in 2018.

 

Accommodation during my 1976 visit to Banff

consisted of a sleeping bag and a small tent.

Forty-two years later and a lot more comfort

and more memories

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.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Hot-Cold

~~~~~

Although it did not…

…feel cold from the comfort of our coach,

it was snowing outside as we approached

Alberta’s, Columbia Icefields.

 

 

Nor did it feel cold while walking

on the Athabasca Glacier.

 

 

 

However, 63 miles inside the Arctic Circle

at Wiseman, Alaska, the sun was shining and

shirt sleeves were almost

the dress code of the day

 

Certainly the exact opposite of what we/I

expected weather conditions

that far north to be.
