Tourists waiting…

…to visit the

Palace of Versailles…

…and waiting for a heavy downpour…

of rain to ease, at Pompeii.

Even when the rain eased treading carefully

was the order of the day.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Antagonistic

~~~~~

antagonistic

showing or feeling active opposition
or hostility towards someone or something.

Taji will, one day, definitely show

active opposition…

…to this kelpie’s behavior.

Then Candi will know her place in the world.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Native

~~~~~

native

a person born in a specified place
or associated with a place by birth,
whether subsequently resident there or not.

My guess would be that there were not many

Parisién or French natives (in general)…

…in this queue at Palace of Versailles.

FOWChallenge-Highfalutin

~~~~~

~~~~~

~~~~~

highfalutin

(especially of speech, writing, or ideas)
pompous or pretentious.
~~~~

The general consensus was that..

…there would have been a fair degree of

pomposity and pretentiousness

within and around

Schonbrunn and Versailles Palaces.

During our travels of the past twelve months

we were fortunate to visit several gorgeous gardens.

Butchart Gardens, Schönbrunn Palace, Versailles Palace

and finally Hamilton Gardens in New Zealand.

The Gardens which I really wanted to visit were

The Butchart Gardens on Canada’s Vancouver Island.

We were so pleased that we arrived a day or two early.

This gave us time to look around Victoria

prior to our tour commencing.

Because of this we spent much more time exploring

Butchart the our tour had allocated.

We were just finishing a walk through the Sunken Gardens

when were were scheduled to leave.

Public transport took us back to Victoria

and we both would recommend this to anyone visiting

Victoria and Butchart Gardens.

Hamilton Gardens,
