Not sure whether to call this the Yacht Club, the Marina,

or play it safe and refer to the

I cannot remember what they are.

After our coldest February day in twelve years

on Sunday…

it was a good excuse to run some

early morning errands, with camera in hand.

After a gloomy Sunday, Monday’s sunrise

was a non-event due to cloud cover.

Cee’s

Black and White Challenge:

Perspective

~~~~~

When we first moved to Geelong, or maybe before,

we noticed this art work at the bay end of Moorabool Street.

No-one we asked seemed to know if it had a name

or when it was put there,

so we coined the name

The Sharks Teeth‘.

It was not until last year that a camera club member asked

what I was talking about.

Upon explaining he burst out laughing with

I’ve heard it called a lot of things, but never sharks teeth

sailing_0196

 Apparently they represent sails or sail boats.

This all makes sense as quite often there is a small flotilla

of sailing boats on the bay all crewed by children,

and therefore, I have not taken any photos of said boats

as they are usually close enough to shore

for the crew to be identified.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Against The Odds

~~~~~

On Valentines Day were asked to “double date’

(as MGW told her teenage girls at work) with

No. 1 Son and his Girlfriend.

Girlfriend said she had not had fish and chips

since arriving in Australia.

The venue was to be our place until Girlfriend decided

that fish and chips had to be eaten outdoors.

Girlfriend loves Geelong’s foreshore and that was the venue.

I thought we may have had a few seagulls for company, but…

when this sparrow alighted on our table and tried desperately

to pull a whole chip out of my hand, I knew

there was an unexpected photo opportunity

if I had my camera at the ready.

Not content with a chip, sparrow returned several times

to sample Girlfriend’s banana cake.

Sparrow and I both agreed that Girlfriend needs

more practise baking cakes and that we will be her taste testers 😀

Even though it was a bit chilly…

we have had a cool summer so far…

we all had an enjoyable evening out.
