Queensland’s Daintree River
lurking on the shore.
the Daintree River
on this ferry/barge.
Although this crop is not very good,
one does get the idea that the sign is a warning
of crocodiles and swimming in the river.
Remain in your vehicle? Really?
Who would get out on a
relatively sideless barge while crossing
a crocodile infested river.
Sadly, someone will.
Blue…my favourite colour.
Whether it is the blue skies of
Far North Queensland, or…
…flying into the Alaskan wild blue yonder
in our blue plane.
At just over 16.9 degrees
South of the Equator,
I think Cairns
qualifies as tropical..
Our rail journey up to Kuranda took us
past many waterfalls, which
due to the wet season had
much more water flow than
any waterfall in Victoria does in April
As this excursion is billed as Skyrail we had
a return journey over tropical forests.
This trip was my first exposure to
the beauty of tropical plants.
I could not work out why every man
and his dog was frequenting this pool.
Our accommodation was about two blocks
from an unused beach. Why unused?
Twice I wandered down to ‘our’ beach
wondering why no-one was using it.
Both times into the water about ankle-deep.
It was while leaving the beach, the second time,
that I noticed a sign which in not so many words
told me that crocodiles also used that beach.
I quickened my step never to return. 🙂
Although I do not have a photo to prove the fact,
I did see the Northern Lights in August 1976.
Not a very colourful display but my Canadians friends
assured me it was the northern lights.
In May the same year I visited Stonehenge also.
In 2016 I was able to add…
…the Colosseum to that list.
Just imagine also the feet which have walk across here.
In 2014 we were…
…fortunate enough to visit…
…the Victoria Falls.
out on the…
the colours often seen in movies/documentaries.
We were also told that a recent cyclone
had wrecked this section of the reef.
The comment left me wondering why we did not go
to another, more attractive part.
After revisiting these photos I think my thoughts were a bit harsh.
All of these places of sites can be found on
an ‘Ancient’, ‘Natural’ or ‘New’ Wonders of the World search.
Concrete outdoors settings
at Paronella Park in Queensland.
Apart from the romance behind its creation
was one of the destinations for
Australian and American solders
on R&R during world War 2.
Perhaps made from a recycled packing case??

Bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.
Another bench seat, Geelong Botanic Gardens.
Some street art from Melbourne.
Not sure it was design as a seat but I have
seen it used as such.
The most simple and easiest seat to make.
Probably need a ten-ton crane to move it though.
