I’m a week late with this…better late..

Eastern Beach and…

…the Geelong Ferris Wheel.

 

 

From another angle you can see how close

the Geelong CBD is to the beach.

It’s not Day 15 it’s only Day ONE of Victoria’s

COVID isolation from the rest of the country

all due to a spike in the number

of new cases each day.

Because of this spike, or potential second wave,

all state borders are closed to Victorians.

Ten postcodes in and around Melbourne

have been told to stay at home.

The only reasons to be outside one home

is for exercise, essential shopping,

school and work.

Seems a soft approach when some

are blatantly not listening.

~~~~~

Those WERE the days

~~~~~

Stay safe.    🙂

Hope you enjoyed.

FriendlyFriday-Summer-Traditions

~~~~~

 

 

A tradition the same the world over…

 Whether it’s Lucerne….

…Nice…

…or Sydney’s

Manly Beach…

 

 

…when the sun shines and warms our planet,

many of us head to water for a picnic

and a relaxing swim.

FOWChallenge-Baby

~~~~~

~~~~~

baby

comparatively small or immature of its kind

 


Babies come in all shapes and sizes.

 

A baby elephant tips the scales at

around 200 pounds or 90 kilograms

and is around 3 feet tall/0.91 metres.

A newborn giraffe weighs

around 220 pounds or 99 kilograms and

stands about 6 feet tall/1.82 metres.

the average weight of a human baby is

around 7.5 pounds/3.5 kilograms and is

about 50 centimetres/18 inches long

 

It took nearly twenty years for

these babies to reach an

elephant’s birth weight

This is a usual pose…

…for Taji.

What was unusual about the sight was

that Taji was not in her kennel.

For some reason it is now a usual occurrence

to find Taji in Maggie’s kennel, the middle one,

while she takes her morning nap.

FOWChallenge-Cranky

~~~~~

~~~~~

cranky

bad tempered; irritable

 

I have posted these images previously…

It is Candi’s attitude…

 

 

…in all images, which pushed Taji

past playfulness last October.

 

Taji became cranky and told Candi where to go.

Strangely Candi, at half Taji’s strength and weight

decided to stand up to Taji,

as all kelpies have done with

all Labradors we have owned.

Although they both drew some blood,

Candi came off second best.

Taji sat on her, literally, at one stage

and Candi limped for several weeks after.
