I thought a couple of photos of Ginger were appropriate for this challenge.

After all Maggie starred in my Wordless Wednesday post.  Fair’s fair.

Whether you consider this to be Ginger looking up or me looking down is up to you.

War Memorials

This afternoon I happened to glance up at a War Memorial.

Being ANZAC Day tomorrow, April 25th, I remembered that one of my first posts was the Dawn Service on ANZAC Day at this memorial

 It appears some people have left their memorials early.

Behind the original memorial…

is a more contemporary Memorial…

to those who served in conflicts after World War II.

As Thursday’s sun sets I know that at 0600 tomorrow this area will be…

surrounded by 400 or 500 hundred people remembering loved ones and the liberties they delivered us.

Mountain Mist

mist_0188This was the view into the Grampians at Hall’s Gap last Thursday.  It was damp but beautiful weather after nine years of relatively dry weather.  Hard to believe climates can vary so much in a relatively short distance.  Afterall it is only about 2 degrees of the earth’s circumference between point A and point B.

Kookaburras

kookaburra_0353

On Thursday we had planned a drive to Hall’s Gap.

kookaburra_0328Hall’s Gap is the main town in the Grampians National Park and …

Victoriais located in the southern end of the Great Dividing Range which runs down the east coast of Australia.

kookaburra_0335Our main reason for undertaking this 6 hour round trip was to visit the gallery of an artist who had organised the South African Safari last year.

kookaburra_0336We have kept in touch with Steve Morvell via FaceBook.  Although we read his comments regarding the wildlife surrounding his gallery.  We did not expect to see anything like this.

These wild kookaburras did not take long to realise that while MGW was not their usual food provider she was not there to threaten them.

Our last morning in South Africa provided us with a cruise on the Olifants river, just outside Phalaborwa.

Whether we looked up, or down, the sights, at times,

were daunting!

Kardinia-Park_1864

On Saturday, September 7th, Geelong will host one of the Australian Football League’s 2013 final games.  With a capacity of around 33,000 I believe this is the only stadium outside of Melbourne to host a finals game, in Victoria.

Roof_1940

I took this shot about two months ago as I found the roof fascinating.  It was the first time I had seen a slate tiled roof, at close quarters, and could only marvel at the workmanship and how well it has lasted.

Door_1943BW

The right roof above this door is where the first photo was taken.  I have walked through this door many times but only looked up once.
