A quiet moment in Vancouver.

How many faces are pondering,

how lucky he/she is.

Whether one is in

there is always a signpost

to point you to your

next destination.

Visual treats

Visiting Notre de Dame de Paris was a real treat…

…made all the more special after the Cathedral…

…was ravaged by fire with 12 months.

I guess I have seen the Eiffel Tower…

…lit up in movies, however seeing it

in person was fantastic.

The Moulin Rouge was also a

must see in Paris.

I doubt that even in my younger days

would I have gone fishing

in the vicinity of white water…

 

…let alone the white water of Victoria Falls.

An optional helicopter flight over Victoria Falls…

 …to view the effect the rushing waters of

the Zambezi River has had on the landscape

leaving previous falls sites high and dry.

A goodbye London special treat was

a ride on the London Eye.

 

Well worth the time for some nice views of London…

…after dark.

Finally…

…after hearing my Father speak of Menin Gate

from time to time, I was pleased to find

a tour group that included a visit

to Menin Gate in its

Western Front itinerary.

 

So it was that in early June of 2017,

before a relatively small crowd, I was

part of the ceremony that commemorates

the Great War each and every night.

Three local buglers performed the last post

in a simple but moving ceremony at Ypres’

Menin Gate, in Belgium

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Warning

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

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.
