One Word Photo Challenge-Fairy

~~~~~

Fairy.

I was not sure what to use as a subject this week, until…

Fairy Penguins came to mind, however…

now, to be politically correct, they are known as Little Penguins.

 And then of course there is Port Fairy, where I used to

holiday with family and friends many decades ago.

Port Fairy is a fishing/tourist town and was named

by the crew of the whaler The Fairy in 1828.

In 1835 a whaling station was established

followed by a store in 1839.

Fishing boats still use the Moyne River as their

port of refuge from Bass Strait’s wild weather

and it was in the upper reaches of the Moyne

that I spent many hours swimming

before a swimming pool was constructed

in my home town in about 1966/67.

More history of Port Fairy can be found here.

As previously mentioned I thought young lady

was set for some evening busking.

However, I think she may have played briefly

for another tourist group in Brugge.

Odd Ball

Week 41, 2016

~~~~~

I have cheated a bit today and used MGW’s Facebook post

of yesterday, Sunday, for my Odd Ball post

This morning dear, old Sox passed away.

He was the last of our farm animals

and was a loving and affectionate cat.

I will miss my morning chin rubs and his chirpy

little conversations.

RIP old boy.

Sox_0596

This was one of his last photos and he looks

better here than he did over the past eight weeks.

 He used to tear my hands to pieces when he was younger.

 It was only in his later years that he mellowed…with me.

RIP Sox.

The oft used phrase,

‘…The writing’s on the wall…’

laneway_0541is very evident in Melbourne’s Hosier Lane

and surrounds,

where artists writing the tags, names or slogans

for peace…and other things in vibrant colours

A computer generated piece of sign writing.

sign_1466

Last, but not least, one of my favourite pieces of

writing from the wall of one of Geelong’s Hotels.

  The sign changes about every week and

quite often I forget to look.
