At Manly Beach…

to exposed parts of their body.

to worry about protecting themselves.

Until 2005 I lived among 

South Western Victoria’s

volcanic lava flows.

…where stone fences were not at all unusual.

Nor were buildings of stone held

together with a mud mortar.

Not being a fan of sandy beaches…

…I found it difficult to see what the attraction was

to this stony beach at

Nice,

on the

French Riviera.

One-Word-Sunday-Umbrellas

~~~~~

 

This week’s images

come from Italy and France.

Venice and Murano…

 

…provided us with our first wet weather day

since leaving Australia.

 

More wet weather at Pompeii where even under cover

colourful umbrellas were required

to keep rain at bay.

 

And the downpour eased we had to

negotiate flooded streets before

reaching our coach.

At least the umbrellas at Nice were being used

to keep the sun away and afford some privacy

on Nice’s private beaches.
