One Word Sunday: Dream

Amun and Isis our resident Egyptian geese, stand looking at the dreamy reflections across the pond.

I wonder if like me, they’re dreaming of ‘Far away places with strange sounding names.’

Hope your Sunday is going well. It’s pouring with rain here in Florida, so we missed our usual morning walk.

One Word Sunday: Where?

If it weren’t for the Coronavirus scare around the world, this is where hubby and I would be headed right now. A daily walk along the beach, checking out my favourite lighthouse along the way.

Having our daughter come to stay with us in a beach-side apartment and seeing my darling sister almost every day.

I wonder when it will be possible and safe to travel again? I know the saying, “East, West, home is best,” but it’s also nice to have a change of scenery.

Wishing you all a perfect Sunday as you’re maybe also dreaming of what you’d rather be doing.

One Word Sunday: Pareidolia

Two forest creatures having a tête-à-tête, but why stand so close to one another? Haven’t they read about social-distancing?

Hope you’re all keeping a safe distance from your fellow creatures on this beautiful Sunday.

One Word Sunday: Communication

Seen on our drive from Puno to Cusco in South Eastern Peru. This outside toilet might look somewhat primitive, but seems to have ‘All Mod Cons’ for keeping in communication with the rest of the world.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Clouds

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge this week is ‘Clouds’.

Here are clouds hovering over the city of La Paz, the capital of of Bolivia. At an elevation of roughly 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level, La Paz is the highest capital city in the world. We’d just flown into El Alto airport which is even higher, at an altitude of 13,323′ and I was definitely feeling the effects.

Clouds over lake Titicaca as we took the hydrofoil across the lake to Copacabana.

The clouds around the lighthouse in my old hometown of Umhlanga South Africa, where at sea level my body is happiest.

Here in Florida it’s pretty flat too. No wonder the clouds fall into the water at our local nature reserve.

Pull Up A Seat And Freeze Your Butt Off

XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge Week 8’ had me thinking of really cool seats that I’ve seen and experienced.

Visiting Tahoe for Christmas 2018, I sat on this stone wall. The icy cold even found it’s way through my three layers of clothes.

I’m sure these two locals were used to the cold and probably met here most days for a chat.

On a previous Christmas visit to our son in New Jersey, this was the view through his family room window.

However, the coolest seat I ever sat on was this one in Antarctica.

Pull Up A Seat In Johannesburg

XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge’ is now on week 47 and I’ve found a few more seats from my travels.

At Johannesburg OR Tambo airport, Nelson Mandela can be found sitting on a bench as large as life.

A bit further along, Jack Daniels, whose premium Tennessee whiskey has become very popular in South Africa, also has his own bench.

On a visit to Johannesburg, our little granddaughter Sienna decided to join the flamboyant ‘cowch potato’ Daisy sitting on a bench reading the ‘Daily Mooews’
