My first contribution to
Mid Week Monochrome
Red Hot Poker
King Alfred Daffodil
Finally, two version of a…
A Dubai fire dancer.
Burning the rubbish.
A deliberately light fire and
a church near Geelong.
About two years before our 2013 safari to South Africa
we were told of High Tea at the Bur Al Arab in Dubai.
At the ninth hour our trip to the Serengeti via Dubai
was changed to Kruger National Park
in South Africa.
No Dubai, unless a long detour!
It took us another three years before we had
any hope of being anywhere near Dubai.
We decided to spend a few nights in Dubai,
the Burj Al Arab is well out of our price range,
and the first thing we did was book the
Burj Al Arab High Tea
as one of our outings.
Fast forward to last week,
and MGW had book us High Tea
in Melbourne as a
Wedding Anniversary outing.
All served on Wedgewood china…
the experience was a little different
to the Burj Al Arab…
however, both experiences
had delicious endings.
And better yet Melbourne provided us with
a teapot of freshly made tea to wash it all down.
THEN, I had to find another notch in my belt.
Blue…my favourite colour.
Whether it is the blue skies of
Far North Queensland, or…
…flying into the Alaskan wild blue yonder
in our blue plane.
Two years ago we celebrated our wedding anniversary…
With a hot air balloon ride over Melbourne.
After the event we were taken to
the Sofitel Hotel for breakfast.
Prior to our arrival at the Sofitel
we were told to make use of the amenities/bathroom
because it certainly was a room with a view.
Thank you for the inspiration Patti.
From the Sofitel men’s room,
there was a clear view of Rod Lava Arena…
…which tennis fans will be familiar with.
Also had a clear view of the Evan Walker Bridge…
…which I posted earlier in the week.
