Word-of-Day-Challenge-Nervous

~~~~~

nervous

easily agitated or alarmed.

 

Just before Christmas 2018…

…we rescued ‘Smudge’ from a local act shelter.

We renamed him Smudge.

It took him all summer to get used to his new home

and he still has not ventured any closer

than around 10 metres from the house.

He is good friends with Taji and bullies Candi at play.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Chic

chic

elegantly and stylishly fashionable.

 

After living out of a suit case for nearly a month

we both decided a new set of clothes was in order

for our 2016 High-Tea at Dubai’s

Burj Al Arab.

I thought MGW looked rather chic

in her new full length evening wear.

~~~~~

delight

please (someone) greatly.
“an experience guaranteed to delight both young and old”

In October 2016 it was a delight to take…

High Tea in the

Burj Al Arab’s

Sky View Bar

(200 metres above sea level, on the 27th floor)

and…

 

 

watch the sun setting over

The Palm Jumeirah,

in Dubai.

 

 

 

30th Wedding Anniversary

For our Thirtieth Wedding Anniversary

MGW booked us a hot air balloon ride

over Melbourne.

Last year another delightful surprise with

First Class Dining aboard

The Q Train

This year it was High Tea at

the Langham Hotel

in Melbourne.

All experiences could only be described

as delightful outings.

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.

in 2016 we interrupted out journey home from Europe

with a few days in Dubai, where…we enjoyed a Dubai Creek Dinner Cruise…

 

a desert safari…


dinner and entertainment.

However, the highlight of our visit…

was admiring the interior of

and a wonderful High Tea experience in

The Sky View Bar…


of the Burj Al Arab.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-August-Words-Yr3

Words from all over.

After a hearty breakfast our hosts thought we required

further fortification about two hours down the road. 

We soon cut back on hearty breakfasts

not so much to eat this food,

rather just to cut back in intake.

I hope this fits the definition of designer chic.

It’s part of the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.

 

As we cruised Glacier Bay this year we all

watched these ‘small’ pieces of ice

floating past the ship.

It wasn’t until I heard someone comment

on the length and size of a piece that I began

to think  of ‘the tip of the iceberg‘.

Then I saw one piece of ice which was

not moved by the ships bow wave.

Definitely 90% submerged!

 

  This chunk of ice is a bit longer than some

and I only discovered the seals this morning. 

Adult Alaskan seals are 5-6 feet long and tip the scales

at 180-285 pounds or 80-130 kilograms. 

My  guesstimate is that this small piece of ice

is around 20 feet long with much

more submerged than we see here.

I think all agree that this is the

embodiment of a prehistoric creature
