Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday -Spectacle’, immediately brought this photo to mind. Machu Picchu is a 15th century Inca citadel in Southern Peru and after it’s discovery by Hiram Bingham in July 1911, it became one of the ‘New 7 Wonders Of The World’. It is most certainly a stunning spectacle to behold and to explore and I was very happy to be able to cross it off my Bucket List.
I hope you’re all having a most enjoyable weekend. Yesterday, Ali Baba our resident alligator came cruising past our kitchen window. Now there’s another spectacle for you, but he’d unfortunately disappeared again before I could grab my camera and go out to wish him a very good morning.
Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’ challenge is ‘Three’ and last night whilst out for dinner with friends at a lovely beachfront restaurant, I ordered the lobster and crab stuffed shrimp. There were just three of these delicious morsels nestled on creamy mashed potato, surrounded by crispy fried onion strips and decorated with a beautiful orchid flower. Mmmm!
Here is where I would really like to be at the moment, in Umhlanga sitting on a bench looking out at the Indian Ocean.
Here in Florida, there are many birds who enjoy getting wet, like Mr Peli.
Last spring we spotted a few wet baby alligators enjoying a swim.
If you want to see a serious amount of wetness, then go to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Although it’s neither the widest nor highest waterfall in the world, it still happens to be the world’s largest sheet of falling water, and you can’t get much wetter than that.
The subject of Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’ is Spiral. I immediately thought of this spiral staircase leading up to the Cabiria Restaurant at the Marriott Grand Hotel Flora in Rome. We were whisked up to the roof deck by elevator, but after dinner, even after a few glasses of wine, hubby and I decided that this was a far more exciting way to get back down to ground level. On my winding descent, I counted 186 steps.
Wishing you all a splendid Sunday and new week ahead. It seems impossible that we’re almost into September and with not a skerrick of travelling done this year.
