I happened to spot this harpist

setting up in Brugge.

What appeared to be tourists

were being lead her way.

Five minutes later not a sign of her.

Must be the shortest practice/busking

session ever.

 

I know I posted this image last week,

however, looking at again I could not help

but wonder if this bloke could practice

his pick up technique a bit more?

 

Even Lucerne’s famous Chapel Bridge,

which crosses the Reuss River is an ideal place

to hone one’s skills and perhaps glean

a few tourist dollars/euros in the process.

A Bourke Street, Melbourne, busker

 

What a way to practice one’s

Twister skills and…

 

…pay a bill or two at the same time.

I love this image.

The very young appreciating

the older generation’s skills.

Something not seen or heard very often

these days….unfortunately.

Misery Creek Bridge.

 A Few years ago a falling tree bought more misery

to what remained of Misery Creek Bridge.

 

 

Sydney’s…

…Harbour Bridge.

 

 

In Botswana we came across

new bridge sporting this sign…

 

We walked slowly across this bridge only stopping

to admire the old bridge just visible on the left.

Chapel Bridge, Lucerne.

 

 

Sunrise under Melbourne’s

West Gate Bridge.

Evan Walker Pedestrian Bridge

over

Melbourne’s Yarra River

Finally, a bridge to nowhere.

I’m not sure why…

…mankind deems it necessary to endure strenuous walks

while carrying backpacks, when on vacation.

I do know why…I think.

Where else are we going to put our cameras,

medications of all varieties,

the wet weather/cold weather gear,

sunscreens, spare glasses,

bottle of water and so on??

 

Whether a long holiday,

a long weekend

or simply a day out in the sun…

 

 

..relaxing on and around Lake Lucerne

seems an ideal way to take a break.

Walks.


Walkers alongside Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree.  

Lake Wendouree was the site of all rowing events

during the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.

The walk from Eastern Beach car park.

At the top of the hill, you are only a five minute walk

from Geelong’s Central Business District.

The reverse view down to the Promenade.

Nearing the top of Lucerne’s

Mt Rigi.

The walk in context.

 

 

Walking in Schoenbrunn Palace gardens

 

 

 

 

We didn’t have the time or energy

to walk all to the back of the garden.

An ideal ‘stacked’ image for this week.

Big Square bales of hay stacked for ease of loading onto trucks.

Google tells me that middle sized

big ‘squares’ weigh around 500 kg compared to

small square bales which weigh around 20-25 kg each.

 

Stacked (or stuck) macaroons.

This stacked of macaroons looked yummy.

Finally, a Melbourne stack of macaroons.

Coffee and a macaroon at Mcdonalds

is the only place I know of in the Geelong area

to enjoy one of these

waist expanding culinary delights.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Apex

~~~~~

Our train ride up Switzerland’s…

Mt Rigi…

…did not take us to the apex.

There were two fairly steep walks left to attain

the full 1,798 metre height of the mountain.

While I did not hurry there were

spectacular views as we walked up.

 

 

Upon arriving at the summit the views…

 

of Lake Lucerne we equally…

…breathtaking.

 

 

 

After ten or fifteen minutes it was time

to return to the gift shop level.

The walk back seemed more difficult

than the walk up, thanks to a football injury

to my knee in the early 1970s.

Definitely worth the effort though.
