Curves from all over…

Curved seating at Manly, a Sydney suburb.


A curve in the track allowed us to capture images

of the front…


and rear of the Rocky Mountaineer

during our journey back to Vancouver.


Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Waaay back in the 1960s 

Simon & Garfunkel penned and/or

at least sang these lyrics:

… Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow 
I am a rock
I am an island…

When I read this week’s theme I could only think

of being covered by a blanket of snow this week.

Temperatures forecasts for the week were 

33, 37, 27, 33, 29 and plunging to 22 on Saturday.

We certainly had our 33 today (Monday)

and may get some relief on Wednesday.

But roll on  Saturday.

At least I can gaze upon these images of

our visit to the Athabasca Glacier/Columbia Icefield

last June and remember.

We had probably the busiest year we will ever have in 2018.Late February we spent a weekend in Auckland

to celebrate the engagement of

our eldest son to his bride to be.

 

In June we were blessed with falling snow while

visiting the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier.

Most of us had not seen falling snow ever,

so a real delight.

A week or so later while cruising the Inside Passage

during  our stop at Juneau we flew

onto the Mendenhall Glacier to visit the huskies

and have a rife in a sled.

Another highlight.

 

 

  

We hardly seemed to be home

before preparations needed…

to be made for our road trip in New Zealand

prior to our son’s wedding.

A Māori Hāngī at the

Whakarewarewa Māori Village in Rotorua…

 

…and a visit to the Hobbit Movie Set at Matamata,

 

…were preludes to the big day.

 

 

The next morning back at

Auckland International Airport

for our flight home.

Maligne Valley Gorge Falls.

Although the sign read

Maligne Canyon.

 

 

Athabasca Falls

Both attractions are in

Jasper National Park

Both falls were flowing rapidly
