I am inclined to suggest that any journey
originating in Australia and visiting
the northern hemisphere
could be described as an ‘Odyssey’.
Last year’s travel to Canada took us about
16 hours flying time to reach Vancouver Island
an event we had not counted on.
Our sled ride on the Mendenhall Glacier was wonderful.
Followed by the Red Carpet treatment
when boarding our
Gold Leaf Carriage.
Our Final day, not included in the tour,
was a visit to Wiseman,
a very small township
inside the Arctic Circle.
Our Camera Club cruise on Corio Bay
in February this year presented me
with this image.
it was taken in
…38 parallel south of the Equator…
…it could be argued that our excursion…
…to Wiseman, Alaska, was nearly
at the North Pole.
After all we were 63 miles
or (101.389 Kilometers)
INSIDE the Arctic Circle.
Wiseman is 67.4100° North,
according to Google.
This gesture left us in no doubt as to
what this young lady thought of
…not to walk in front of my camera.
I’m sure I would have received more
than a gesture had I done that
when I was the same age.
How times change.
Both were happy to see the fence.
Dachshund because it could escape.
Maggie because she escaped any further chasing.
Her job completed, shed trotted back
to the backdoor very satisfied with herself.
However, there was no escape for these husky puppies…
