~~~~~

winding

a twisting movement or course.
 
~~~~~

The Great Ocean Road follows the coastline, literally.

Therefore it winds its way from end to end.

Similarly, the road into the mountains

below the Cairns, Skyrail winds

its way along the mountainside.

Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk313_Experience

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

experience

practical contact with and observation of facts or events
 

A few years ago My Good Wife decided that we would

take a Hot Air Balloon ride over Melbourne

to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

 

It did eventuate on our second try….the first time

being cancelled at 0345 the morning of the event

due to higher than wanted winds.

Ever since with the exception of COVID years,

it has been a wedding anniversary experience 

 

Earlier this year our experience was a day trip to

Craigs Hut which was featured

in the 1980-81 movie

The Man From Snowy River

starring

Tom Burlinson and Kirk Douglas

At 1450 m (4757 feet) above sea level, even in early April

warm clothing was a must.

~~~~~

magic

wonderful; exciting.
 
 
 

It was magic that this rainbow

appeared as I was leaving

Point Lonsdale Pier. 

It lasted for around 90 seconds,

and then simply disappeared again.

 

 

It was again like magic to watch daylight

raise sun from the sea.
