Wordless Wednesday – Meet Marvin

I first met Marvin on the web many years ago – No words could describe him.

Still can’t think of any words to describe him 😊😊

Wordless Wednesday- seen in Waikiki

Seen on TheBus making our way to Diamond Head Trail Waikiki
27 April 2017

I’ve never noticed a steering wheel as high as that – horizontal or otherwise
Or maybe our bus drivers have a different set up

This driver certainly didn’t look comfortable – and wasn’t open to ‘chatting’

Decided it was a bit too hot when we got there – there’s always another time😊

Almost Wordless Wednesday……seen in Kavala

Seen in Kavala Greece 
8 October 2014

Oh my goodness, you never know what is to be found in some towns
We knew there was lots to see here but nobody mentioned :-
The Kavala Aqueduct

Seen early on our way into the town centre.

One enormous structure right there ‘in your face’ no way of avoiding it!

Seen from up at the top of the castle – meandering it’s way through the town.
We didn’t have time to see where it began or ended but what we did see was inspiring.

And seen again on our way down.

Here in Melbourne there was an old saying’ meet you under the clocks’ meaning the clocks out the front of Flinders Street Station….. I wonder if the locals here say ‘meet you under the arches?’

Almost Wordless Wednesday – Seen in Alaska

Cruising the Glacier Bay Basin
South Eastern Alaska, United States of America
26 August 2010

Grey skies are going to clear up – well that’s what the Captain said 😊
It didn’t quite work out that way though.

Early in the morning it looked a bit ho-hum

Is that a little bit of blue sky I see

Didn’t last for long tho’ 😟
Margerie Glacier
 Later in the day
Sunset coming from behind very low cloud over what looks like an ice field

But is in fact is a bank of even lower cloud low on the horizon

Covering 3.3 million acres of rugged mountains, dynamic glaciers, temperate rainforest, wild coastlines and deep sheltered fjords, Glacier Bay National Park is a highlight of Alaska’s Inside Passage and part of a 25-million acre World Heritage Site—one of the world’s largest international protected areas.  Source

Wordless Wednesday – Seen in Cesme

In a town full of small cobblestone streetsimage

Where the old meets the new and the modern streetsweeper needs a man with a broom to assistimage

From another small street in the mid afternoon image

Came a young girl – with shopping list and escort

imageWhere was she off to?

Was it to the family run ‘markets’?

imageOr what appeared to be the only butcher in town?

Unfortunately we’ll never know 😦

Wordless Wednesday – seen in my kitchen

This was a test drive tasting last year (2013)

2013 Ready to serve

Look here to see Aunty Pam’s recipe never fails 🙂
Certainly looked alright and definitely tasted alright

2013 Looking good enough to eat

So we wonder what this year’s will be like?

~ 2014 ~ Biding their time in their clean coverings ~
~ 2014 ~ Biding their time in their clean coverings ~

Hope they are good!

 But then you know what they say
‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’
I’m sure we won’t be disappointed – we’ll just have to wait and see 🙂

(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday – But wait, there’s more………………….

This is a ‘nearly’ Wordless Wednesday Post

There were other delights to be found the day I visited the garden centre.
But first I must tell you that
Here in Australia it is winter sport season
And here in Melbourne the predominant winter sport is Aussie Rules
administered by the AFL
Australian Rules Football
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_rules_football
http://www.afl.com.au/

A game where players use an oval shaped ball that they move from one end of the ground by kicking or throwing or even running with the ball and then trying to get it through the goal posts.  These are four large poles and you can score points for a goal or a a point for a behind
I won’t go into the rules and regulations (‘cose I don’t know most of them)
But for diehard followers there is only one thing that matters at this time of the year ( or any time of the year to be precise) and that is Their Team?
‘Who do you barrack for’
would most likely be the first thing asked when people meet for the first time
(only joking – but it could be possible lol)

Anyway back to the Garden Centre
We all know it is important to have a figurine or a statue in our garden – one that can be admired or even revered.  Do you think one of these would be a welcome gift to an Aussie Rules Footy Fan??

Footy Gnomes
