A ring that was accidentally damaged…

and, although we were told it was repaired,

on several occasions, it wasn’t.

As you can see.

 

An engagement photo from a few years ago.

Wine barrels held together by metal rings.

A building which definitely fits

the 100 years or older category.

Rome’s Colosseum…

has always fascinated me.

I just wish we could have had more time to explore.

 

As it was, we had too little time and the body

was happy to walk as little as possible.

Beginning with sunshine…

going…

 

and coming to start a new day.

 

 

The Q Train shining its light into the darkness ahead…

The Q Train as the engine swaps ends and joins up

to take us back to the beginning of our journey.

The Q Train is a Dining train which operates

on a section of track,

no longer used for public transport,

between Drysdale and Queenscliff.

 

 

Last Friday, May 11, just before sun up at the car park…

 

at Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

In a few weeks time (June) this was

a sight I looked forward to…

 as it meant an income for future years.

Some years, though, it was heart breaking

especially if the weather was nasty…cold

and wet…lambs often died before they stood up.

This was also part of my farming life until the 1983 drought.

After that year it was decreed that sheep had bellies

which were much easier to fill than cattle,

especially in a drought year.

Sheep also did less damage to fences

than hungry, or not hungry, cattle did.

Goodbye cattle.

Rise

~~~~~

A few puffs…

of hot air…

 

into our…

 

 balloons…

soon had us rising…

 

into to the cool morning air…

and silently sailing over Melbourne

beneath a setting moon.

 

While most of Melbourne was slept

we soared into the fresh morning air…

to admire Melbourne’s skyline

as the sun rose.
