Travel Photo #9

Palm Beach and Pittwater – NSW, Australia

Su Leslie (aka Zimmerbitch) invited me to join her and other bloggers posting a travel photo a day for ten days. The deal is I also invite someone else each day to join in, and ping-back to my post. But as several bloggers I know are already busy with the challenge I am going to resort to inviting “anyone who feels like joining in”

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. We were chatting with close friends this morning from Devon and they haven’t been to a shop since February. An elderly aunt died this week and hopefully a funeral of sorts can happen soon. The death toll is terrible and so very sad to hear. Take care.

        2. It has been bloody awful here. And I fear there is more to come with the new variants appearing. We all just need to look after ourselves.

        3. Totally agree regarding looking after ourselves. I have had the unfortunate task of finding my Dad a place in a resthome. It was not fun for him or the rest of the family especially in our new reality.

        4. Oh, I can relate to that. My dad had to go into a home too as he was unable to care for himself after my mother died. It was downhill all the way as he then got dementia. Possibly the worst 6 years of my life. I hope your dad has a better time of it and that you are allowed to visit him.

        5. Dad has early dementia and my Mum is still alive with Parkinson’s which she’s had since 59 years old. She will hopefully find a room in the same Resthome. Yes, overall not a pleasant experience especially as I’m sort of in the firing line from various family members. Dad had numerous hospital visits due to falls and not capable of looking after Mum let alone himself even with help. Very stressful and this Christmas Les and I prefer to have a quiet one. Les’s health dictates that and it doesn’t feel like a celebration of any sort when we think of those we know all around the world.

        6. I feel for you. Here’s to a peaceful Christmas, just the two of you. I agree that it is not a time for any kind of celebration.
