Some photos from Geelong’s summer foreshore.
DSC_0508

Geelong and Ballarat are only about an hours drive from each other.

However, Ballarat is inland and trips to the coast are common.

DSC_0511Towering above one of the foreshore rotunda is the summer attraction at Geelong…

DSC_0506  They were known simply as Ferris Wheels when I was a boy!

DSC_0499Whatever they are called the modern version is much larger than those in days of yore.

I thought a couple of photos of Ginger were appropriate for this challenge.

After all Maggie starred in my Wordless Wednesday post.  Fair’s fair.

Whether you consider this to be Ginger looking up or me looking down is up to you.

War Memorials

This afternoon I happened to glance up at a War Memorial.

Being ANZAC Day tomorrow, April 25th, I remembered that one of my first posts was the Dawn Service on ANZAC Day at this memorial

 It appears some people have left their memorials early.

surrounded by 400 or 500 hundred people remembering loved ones and the liberties they delivered us.

Mountain Mist

mist_0188This was the view into the Grampians at Hall’s Gap last Thursday.  It was damp but beautiful weather after nine years of relatively dry weather.  Hard to believe climates can vary so much in a relatively short distance.  Afterall it is only about 2 degrees of the earth’s circumference between point A and point B.

Kookaburras

kookaburra_0353

On Thursday we had planned a drive to Hall’s Gap.

kookaburra_0328Hall’s Gap is the main town in the Grampians National Park and …

Victoriais located in the southern end of the Great Dividing Range which runs down the east coast of Australia.

kookaburra_0335Our main reason for undertaking this 6 hour round trip was to visit the gallery of an artist who had organised the South African Safari last year.

kookaburra_0336We have kept in touch with Steve Morvell via FaceBook.  Although we read his comments regarding the wildlife surrounding his gallery.  We did not expect to see anything like this.

These wild kookaburras did not take long to realise that while MGW was not their usual food provider she was not there to threaten them.
