Travel Theme-Over

~~~~~

My

Over

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Decided to stay with my surfing theme this week…

and present some board rides which were definitely over.

Although still almost vertical, the facial expression says it all.

The next shot was of surging white caps

and no sign of a surfer, or board.

Could not recover from this one, or…

this ride on Monday, March 27, 2017.

Earlier in the morning I had driven an hour

to capture the sunrise reflection on the light house.

This is not the pick of the morning’s images

but it is certainly the best with the rainbow

over the light house.

As with all of mother nature’s splendour,

it only lasted minutes.

Surfing fours…

Arriving at Torquay Beach last November, 2016.

Waves not as big as I thought they would be…

but plenty of surfers out and about…

yesterday, Monday, March 21, 2017.

Still in Lucerne.

This scene was re-enacted over and over again

during our holiday.

 

Locals or tourists?

Whichever, they formed a small corner of  my photo.

Hence the quality.

Tourists taking photos of each other!

Some female paddle boarders on Lake Lucerne.

And this bloke was the luckiest guy on Lake Lucerne that day…

surrounded by four attractive young woman.

You can just see the top of his head on the right of the dinghy…

or whatever it is called.

I’m a land lubber!!

He is sprawled out across the dinghy and

the girls are doing all the rowing.

My

Paths

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

Each day thousands of visitors walk the same path…

 as we did, to reach the Colosseum.

Nearly two thousand years ago

Romans were walking these steps.

I wonder will any of our sporting venues

will last as long…even as a ruin.

 

I kept this one till last as it was emphasized, by our guide,

that this stone paving was originally set in place

when the Colosseum was built, nearly two thousand years ago.

barked my shins.
