Some fishing stories.
White water fishing…
More my style of fishing.
The Lone Fisherman
Corio bay Geelong
(Sausage Tree Safari Camp)
In 2012 we visited Cairns…
…and the Great Barrier Reef, and…
…also the Daintree River.
Two years later we visited
Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe
in 2016 during a European holiday…
…a visit to the Colosseum was on the agenda.
on the Bay.

Tropical waterfall near Cairns
in Far North Queensland
It was the dry season…
…so not as much water…
…however still a spectacular sight…
…from land or air at
Not a lot of water however, Victoria Falls
still made magnificent viewing.

From our front door.
Visiting Notre de Dame de Paris was a real treat…
…made all the more special after the Cathedral…
…was ravaged by fire with 12 months.
I guess I have seen the Eiffel Tower…
…lit up in movies, however seeing it
in person was fantastic.
The Moulin Rouge was also a
must see in Paris.
I doubt that even in my younger days
would I have gone fishing
in the vicinity of white water…
…let alone the white water of Victoria Falls.
An optional helicopter flight over Victoria Falls…
…to view the effect the rushing waters of
the Zambezi River has had on the landscape
leaving previous falls sites high and dry.
A goodbye London special treat was
a ride on the London Eye.
Well worth the time for some nice views of London…
…after hearing my Father speak of Menin Gate
from time to time, I was pleased to find
a tour group that included a visit
to Menin Gate in its
Western Front itinerary.
So it was that in early June of 2017,
before a relatively small crowd, I was
part of the ceremony that commemorates
the Great War each and every night.
Three local buglers performed the last post
in a simple but moving ceremony at Ypres’
Menin Gate, in Belgium
Doctor Livingstone, I presume?
…nearby Lal Lal Falls.
In 2014 we visited Victoria Falls
in Zimbabwe .
Four years later, it was Alberta’s,
Athabasca Falls In Canada.
For 55 years lived less than an hour
from Warrnambool’s, Hopkins Falls.
The only time I remember visiting these falls was
when number one Son wanted some photos
for a geography assignment I set his class, in 2003.
As it was a February/March assignment,
there was little or no water flow.
I had to wait another fifteen years and drive two hours
from Geelong to capture this photo.
Even if I had known that this was the third
Natural Wonder of the World
I was visiting/sighting, it would still
have been an awesome feeling flying over
Zimbabwe’s, Victoria Falls.
From the air it is much easier to view
previous sites of the Falls…
