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.

Some random ‘play’ photos.

Our first day in South Africa, 2013. 

No,  that is not yours truly among the trees. 

Rather one of the Australian organisers.

Closer to home. 

Our new timid cat (Smudge) terrorizing Candi.

 

Candi at play.

Not sure who gets most enjoyment,

Candi or her human thrower.

People at play on and around

Lake Lucerne.

The Grieving Mother…

unveiled about two years ago in Ballarat,

which is about a hour inland from Geelong.

 

 

The purple tint is due to incorrect camera settings

which I did not detect until too late.

Whenever I think of, or hear,

the word ‘loss’….

…my mind immediately thinks of where

most of my departed family now rest. 

And in what is obviously a small

country cemetery there are also many

memories surrounding those who are not

family in the strictest sense of the word.
