Last Wednesday I took a ferry ride

across Port Phillip Heads

from Queenscliff to Sorrento

for lunch.

Queenscliff Pier and its white

and black lighthouses.


Arriving at Sorrento.

Hope you enjoyed.






a system in which members of an organization or society
are ranked according to relative status or authority.

Animal hierarchy never

ceases to amaze me.

One would think this is a correct representation

of the hierarchy between a Labrador and Kelpie.

Not so!  The Kelpie is always the boss…except

when the Kelpie becomes over bossy.

Then all it takes is a quick snarl and

the pecking order is back to that

which one would expect.


Then there is the cat. 

Even our new cat ‘Smudge’ is

at the very top of this tree.


Word of the Day Challenge:  Hierarchy











I loved going to bed in Rondavels

and seeing……this view in South Africa’s

Kruger National Park

From South Africa to

Melbourne’s Federation Square

and its associated buildings.

This is the National Gallery of Victoria,

which Melbournians either love or hate.

Mostly the latter!


And I think this is a shot of the angles

above an entrance on that building. 

At least it is probably one of a kind.

Zen: a state of calm attentiveness in which one’s actions

are guided by intuition rather than by conscious effort.

I have also used your meaning of ‘zen’ Terri.

The intuition of a surfer…


…or kite surfer,

has always intrigued me.

However, I have never thought of it

as a ‘zen’ moment before.

Hope I’m somewhere near it 🙂






willfully causing pain or suffering to others,
or feeling no concern about it.
“people who are cruel to animals”

I often hear in the media that

this group or that

thinks farmers are cruel

to their animals.

However, if that were true

many animals would not be as

healthy as these ewes and lambs.
