Flowers in Melbourne

 

 

As we commenced our

English Channel crossing,

I couldn’t see any bluebirds,

however those cliffs were far whiter

than I had ever imagine.

My favourite New Zealand bridge image.

 

Sailing under Melbourne’s

West Gate Bridge

on a trial

Geelong-Melbourne Ferry

run

Auckland Harbour Bridge

at sunset.

Misery Creek Bridge.

The Bridge of Sighs was the only bridge

that I wanted to get close to when in Italy.

This was the best I could do.

FOWChallenge-Paradox

~~~~~

paradox

a person or thing that combines
contradictory features or qualities.
~~~~~

Not certain that this is a paradox. 

However, I cannot think of anything more

contradictory to find on

Melbourne’s 21st Century roads…

…than a horse and carriage stopped

at traffic lights alongside a

21st Century Honda automobile.

Say Hello to Quinn.

 

Quinn was a gift from No. 2 Son

and No. 1 Daughter-in-Law.

 

After Ginger’s sudden death they

decided to replace her with a new kelpie.

However, Candi either had not been born

or was too young to leave her mother

before my birthday.

Quinn came with a note advising me

that Candi would be ready in a few weeks.

That was five years ago next February.

 

A sturdy fence.
