~~~~~~~

~~~~~

warning

a statement or event that warns of something
or that serves as a cautionary example.

The cable ferry over the Daintree River.

No mention of the crocodile infested water

we were crossing.

With such a short crossing one wonders

why anyone would contemplate

leaving their vehicle

 



I thought an unusual sign on a path.

 


Khama Rhino Sanctuary,

Botswana.

I would have thought 50 metres too close.

However, anecdotal evidence tells of

silly tourists and wild animals.

 

 

It’s a wonder hubby was wanted

after daycare at London’s Flyinghorse

When eucalypts grow to to the road’s edge

these signs warn us of Koalas.

As we commenced our

English Channel crossing,

I couldn’t see any bluebirds,

however those cliffs were far whiter

than I had ever imagine.

…fencing.

Gateway into old York

Sydney Harbour fences.

My kinda fencing

The only thing keeping this lamb behind

this old fence is a full belly.

A fence to keep giraffes out.

And just outside our tent door was a fence (foreground)

to keep elephants away.

It worked well, especially with this elephant.

WeeklyPrompts-PC-Bus-Riding

My first encounter with a public transport bus,

was at the ripe old age of 25 in London.

I purchased a 15-day bus pass to move around the U.K.

With my bus pass in hand I hopped aboard

the first bus that came along.

Yes, it was a red double decker bus.

How many of my readers saw or remember

the English TV show,

On the Buses’?   

Very briefly for those who have not seen the show.

It is about an English bus driver who always seems

to be upsetting/crossing the conductor,

who, in turn, readily points out in no uncertain

terms the driver’s indiscretions.

So here is a weary Woolly sitting in the middle

of the back row on top of red DD bus.

Conductor approaches for ticket,

takes one look at my pass and then proceeds

to deliver a tirade during which he points

out that I was on a RED Bus with a GREEN Bus pass.

My mind raced quickly to many similar scenes

from On the Buses and I spent that five minutes or so,

desperately not trying to burst out laughing.

 

 

 

In fact I have spent far more time aboard

holiday coaches where it seems almost

nothing is out of bounds.

Dancing, playing card, singing,

watching movies and sleeping.

Night shots from a variety of places.

Big Ben and Parliament House

from the London Eye

Arras Bell Tower and Place des Heros

Arras,

France

Our night cruise on the River Seine

gave us a multitude of river-side parties…

annd a different perspective

of the Eiffel Tower.

The drive back to our hotel took us past

the Arc de Triomphe…

…and also city lights.

After arriving in Dubai at 0400,

we had a quiet day…

…prior to  boarding a Dhow for a…

…Dubai Creek Dinner Cruise.

Just a few colourful images…

…from our Diner Cruise on…

…Dubai Creek.

Night two saw us on a desert safari and dinner,

with entertainment provided by a fire dancer…

…and a belly dancer.

A great time was had and if you don’t mind

sand from horizon to horizon you

will love the experience.

Me?

I’m not a fan of sand.

The National Gallery of Australian Art.

A building which Melburnians have

a love-hate relationship with.

However, regardless of whether one loves or hates it…

 

…we all have to admit their is a lot of mathematics

in the building’s design.
