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.

Nearing the top of Lucerne’s

Mt Rigi.

Walking in Schoenbrunn Palace gardens

 

 

 

 

We didn’t have the time or energy

to walk all to the back of the garden.

First up a lovely view from…

…our Bed and Breakfast at Matta Matta,

New Zealand.

Just a few minutes drive from

The Hobbiton Movie Set.

Bucklands B and B from memory.

The rest is situated a world away…

in Vienna’s Schonbrunn Palace Gardens.

We could have spent all day

wandering through these gardens.

However, we had to be thankful for a few hours.

(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.

FOWChallenge-House

~~~~~

house

a building for human habitation, especially one that consists
of a ground floor and one or more upper storeys.

We were told that Schönbrunn Palace

was known as the Habsburg’s summer cottage.

 With 1,441 rooms the summer cottage

is only about half the size of

the main Habsburg residence.

 

Then off course there is

the dog house. 🙂
