Griffin Gully


Mt Sheba

South Africa



Nice Beach


Some Blues from

Taupo Gardens…



…New Zealand.


Not a lot of Blue but just

had to include my

Superb Fairy Wren

A back road near Geelong

with a beautiful view.


Not a Botswana back road,

however with wandering livestock,

it could be a back road

We travelled over this road for several hours

before reaching the salt lake.


Greater Kruger National Park…

…provided a variety of tracks/roads

and many wandering wildlife.


This Kruger National Park road

may pass for a back road,

but it isn’t and that maybe that is

why the hyenas used it.

Two years later we visited

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe


in 2016 during a European holiday…

…a visit to the Colosseum was on the agenda.

and facing the same way.

…but we’ll travel the road…


…sharin’ our load, side by side.
