A warm day in Florence.

Let’s sit, rest awhile and partake of a cooling beverage.

  Not quite the ice coffee from home.

But it was wet and did the job.

As the saying goes…

A variety of Towers towering over

their respective landscape.

 

I’m not sure why the Tower of London was so named.

Google to the rescue:

It was founded towards the end of 1066

as part of the Norman Conquest of England.

The White Tower, which gives the entire castle its name,

was built by William the Conqueror in 1078 and was

a resented symbol of oppression, inflicted

upon London by the new ruling elite.

 

 

And now I know 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

Closer to home is…..

…Auckland’s Sky Tower in New Zealand.

Using your imagination it could be

described as similar to Sydney’s Tower. 

The major point of difference is that we

celebrated Number 2 Daughter-in-Law’s birthday

with dinner in the Auckland Sky Tower in 2018.

 

Many of my photos I remember taking,

not so this one over Paris…

 

…not from the top observation point. 

Alas we only made it to the

second observation deck.

 

I guess we should be happy to have made

it up the Eiffel Tower at all,

because we did not set foot inside the

Giotto Bell Tower in Florence, in Italy.

 

I think we may have paid more than we should have,

to visit the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa

(Burj meaning Tower, so I was told). 

However, it was a wonderful, last day, experience

and we thought some pricey

souvenir photos worthwhile. 

 

High Tea at the Burj Al Arab was our

main reason for a stopover in Dubai. 

Again, not something to do on a weekly basis

but a wonderful experience. 

We nudged the local retail economy along 

with a new set of clothes each, for the occasion,

and felt human after living in the same

traveller kit for four weeks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

These Towers are springing up

all over the Western District.

  Almost at our back door, on the farm,

is a wind farm of over 100 towers

claimed to be the largest in

the Southern Hemisphere. 

May have been when built,

but no longer so, I suspect.
