Word-of-Day-Challenge-Shiver

e~~~~~~~

~~~~~

shiver

shake slightly and uncontrollably

as a result of being cold,

frightened, or excited

~~~~~

A few minutes in the Forty Below chamber

and most of us were of the opinion

that it was not as cold as expected.

I daresay a few minutes more,

would have produced an outbreak

of the shivers though.

or as a holiday and usually calling in
at several places.

Our cruise up the inside passage

to Glacier Bay was as quiet as expected.

The only surprise being some

rougher water on the first day.

A Rope Fence…

…designed to keep tourists off the grass.

Skagway

Alaska

 

An educated guess tells me this fence

is in the vicinity of 40-50 years old.

 

A temporary fence to contain two young pups

after their trip to the vet. 

Maggie was quite disgusted at being

contained as well.

 

Street Art

Vienna

Looking Through-the Gate of Violence

An automatically opening/closing gateway

in Hamilton Gardens

New Zealand

 

 

Strainer posts support the fence tension

and often a gate as well.

 

Menin Gate

Ypres

Belgium

Menin Gate

Gateways like this one lead

to the various gardens in the

Hamilton (New Zealand) Gardens.
