Black and White Tuesday

Somee BWs from Torquay again…

only this time from the…

engagement party venue.

This was the only table of munchies in sight

when we arrived….and when we left.

Constantly replenished during the night,

with friendly staff ensuring we had some

heartier finger food in our hands all night.

Wasn’t long before yours truly

ran up a white flag.

Black and White Tuesday

I have been wanting to visit Torquay again

for some time now.

With six-foot waves forecast today seemed to be ideal.

 

 

Just shows how much I know about surfing.

 

 The waves were there, however it was too windy,

 

and only a few brave souls took to the water.

And my ageing eyes found it difficult to see them

in the water such was their distance from shore.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Wintry

 

 

Wintry

Compared to what our news shows of

northern hemisphere winters..

these August images from Torquay beach…

 


may seem quite balmy.

 


 Forty plus years ago, when much younger and

contemplating experiencing

a white Canadian winter, I happened to notice

the thick parkas in the basement and

decided I would stick with a Victorian winter.

A random range of photos again this week.

 This is Geelong Foreshore keeping green.

We have needed to do the same already this summer.

Then today we had 6 mm of rain which

helped the  garden immensely.

Geelong sunrise reflections.

Surfing Torquay’s beaches.

I wish Taji had not learned this habit/play.

Our household waste water is treated and automatically

sprayed on a garden bed via a water treatment plant

and a system of around 50, $6 sprinklers.

when the hose was not watering plants the sewerage system was

and the little darlings managed to chew

nearly all 50 of the sprinklers.

And when I replaced the sprinklers the pups thought

I was replacing them for their enjoyment.

It took several rants, raves and generally behaving

like a madman to get the message through that NO!

these are not for your enjoyment.
