Shutterbug Showcase ‘Walls’


These are feature walls that sit on top of a large hill in my suburb. If you look carefully, you can see a plaque (by the pink cherry blossom) just behind these walls. On the plaque, it says Vue 360 degrees as you can see in every direction from here, from the hinterland and Mount Tamborine, to the coastline  as far as Byron Bay in NSW. Across the Pacific, the next stop is south America.



Next week’s photo challenge is ‘Cheese’  @jennifernicolewells

We are a mixed bag; two Aussies, two English ladies and me, the Welshie. This time we did a little reminiscing on our childhoods and growing up in general. We are a mature bunch of ladies, so most of us can go back a fair few years!

I have lived in Australia for the last ten years and have learnt that Aussies like Vegemite (yuck!) sausages (nicer) and seafood on Christmas Day. But when we talked about what things we liked to eat as a child, I made a surprising discovery – one of my Aussie friends did not know what Blancmange is. A little taken aback by this, I tried to tell her that Blancmange is a creamy dessert…
