a voyage on a ship or boat taken for pleasure
or as a holiday and usually calling in

Our cruise up the inside passage

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Festival

usually staged by a local community,
which centres on some theme,
sometimes on some unique aspect
of the community.

The Shelford Duck Race is held every year

on the last Sunday in February,

although Covid caused its cancellation in 2021.

If not a Festival by definition…

…the day certainly does not lack

a festive/carnival atmosphere…

…which peaks for the Duck Race

along the Leigh River.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Digitally

~~~~~

digitally

by means of digital
or computer technology

Many years ago those in authority changed

the Flinders Street Station clocks from

analogue to digital clock faces.

So many people protested,

that the digital clock faces

were changed back to analogue.

From memory, these analogue

faces are digitally powered.
