Weekly-Weather-Summer

On January 1, 2013 some friends I hadn’t seen since 1976

arrived from Saskatchewan, Canada. One of the planned excursions was a drive along

The Great Ocean Road.

This shot, inside Lochard Gorge, was taken near

the end of that day.

The temperature was 44 degrees Celsius/111 degrees F

and the bitumen in the car park was melting.

It was summer.

 

 

Another sign that summer is on its way is

the erection of the Geelong Ferris wheel.

These were once known as ‘Fairy Penguins’.

However, to be politically correct…

they are now called

‘Little Penguins’

All taken at Melbourne Zoo.

Daily Prompt-Assumption

~~~~~

Assumption

a noun

a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen,

without proof.

We were told Vienna’s

Schönbrunn Palace,

also known as

The Summer Cottage,

has 1,441 rooms

We assume that is correct because…

  1. of the sheer size of the building,

  2. we did not have time to count the rooms,

  3. our guides told us…they should know, and

  4. Google/Wikipedia agree. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge-Twisted

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Twisted

~~~~~

When first approached about growing blue gums…  the clean up contractor told us all fencing material

would be ‘buried’.


I guess when his time arrives he will be happy

to be dumped under a tree in a twisted mess.

A foggy morning and

a clear reflection in still water.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Books-Paper

~~~

When we moved one thing I wanted

was somewhere to store my books.

The shelving was all too quickly filled with both…

 

paper and digital audio books.

Christmas is a time of year when plenty of paper is used.
