While considered fairly modest swimwear

in the 21st Century…

…it is far more revealing than swimwear

of the 1950s and beyond.

At Manly Beach…

…these girls were applying suntan oil

to exposed parts of their body.

Sun lovers on the French Riviera did not seem

to worry about protecting themselves.

Cemetery…

 

 

fences.

Dry Stone Wall…

 

 

…fencing.

Gateway into old York

Sydney Harbour fences.

My kinda fencing

The only thing keeping this lamb behind

this old fence is a full belly.

A fence to keep giraffes out.

And just outside our tent door was a fence (foreground)

to keep elephants away.

It worked well, especially with this elephant.

One-Word-Sunday-Seasonal

~~~~~

~~~~~

seasonal

relating to or characteristic of a particular season of the year.

~~~~~

Back in September/October I would have posted

this image as seasonal.

A few years ago the camera club to which I belong

found cheap day return airfares to Sydney.

Even though the christmas season was with us

Manly’s Beach was crowded with sun lovers

trying to escape the early summer heat.

However, there is only one season…

 

…during which these ornaments are…

 

…on display in our house.

~~~~~

warmth

the quality, state, or sensation of being warm;
moderate heat
~~~~~

In early December 2015 I took up the offer

of a day trip to Sydney with the Camera Club.

 

Although the sun was out I didn’t think it hot.

However, this photo shows part of

the Manly Beach crowd on that weekday.

Sydneysiders obviously disagreed with me

and thought it warm enough to warrant

a splash in the  sea.

Some of Vancouver’s

Giant Laughing Statues…

A spontaneous laugh at Sydney’s

Manly Beach

 

Father after receiving his wig for his

74th birthday about ten years ago. 

That year he had been treated for breast and

at least one other type of cancer…maybe two. 

He celebrated his 86th birthday in mid-October.
