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)
watch the sun setting over
The Palm Jumeirah,
For our Thirtieth Wedding Anniversary
MGW booked us a hot air balloon ride
Last year another delightful surprise with
First Class Dining aboard
The Q Train
the Langham Hotel
All experiences could only be described
as delightful outings.
I’m starting with the old and ending
with the new this week.
I love wildlife photography and was overjoyed
to see this Crimson Breasted Roller
on my computer screen.

In May, 1974 I did manage a tour of the
interior of Sydney’s Opera House.
Fascinatingly beautiful was the only way
to describe the interior of that era.
Although an Arabian Desert Sunset
has some appeal for me, all that sand!
It’s everywhere! 🙂
after dark and with a camera in hand.
The only editing has been brightening it slightly.
I have seen many photographers who would
publish it in its original darker state.

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.
