My

Abroad

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Travelling to Europe last year gave us the

opportunity to see and or visit many places

we had read about or seen only as movie sets. 

Both of us had, not long before departure,

finished reading a book titled,

“I, Mona Lisa’ which was set in Florence.

The Medici family were the main characters,

The story was a fictional depiction of how,

and why, the Mona Lisa may have come to be painted.

 

The Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees 

are two well known landmarks of Paris.

 This is one of the fountains inside

Dubai’s Burj Al Arab.

 

We had planned on partaking of High Tea at

the Burj Al Arab in 2013.

Unfortunately our plans had to change.

  It was, however, a 7 star experience worth waiting for.

Weekly-Weather-Drought

I have taken a few photos of some

small waterholes this year simply

because they contain water.

This is  the first time this water hole

has held a good supply of water all through summer…

a good sign that we have not had the drought times

of previous years.

I took a drive to Point Lonsdale lighthouse

on Monday morning.

Unfortunately there was too much cloud

for good sunrise photos.

 

Capturing the suns rays on the water was

the pick of the bunch…just because

I was able to do so.

However, the lighthouse is still

the draw card for me.

Odd Ball

Week 26, 2017

~~~~~

This was not the first roadside collection of

undetonated ammunition.

 We were told that this is only a ‘couple of weeks worth’

of undetonated or dud ammunition.

It was the first hand grenade we sighted.

I did hear a member of the group state

that it still had the pin in it.

I did not inspect any closer to verify this statement

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Vision

When I think of Vision…

Twelve months ago, I had been told that my

right eye would have its vision impaired

if radiated, or biopsied and the best thing to do

was remove it. 

The yellow pigment was initially diagnosed as

an A-typical melanoma.

After a regime of test during Autumn 2016 the diagnosis

was revised and in 2017 I still have vision in my right eye,

even though the look of it has not changed.
