Trains and boats and.. buses.



You can see from the changing colours of the water in the Swan River that we had a much cooler, cloudy day yesterday.. even a wee bit of rain, was lovely after the last few scorchers. In Kings Park for a walk I took these shots from above looking down across the freeway to the river. The gondola from Gondolas on the Swan looked tiny from up there but it was by no means the smallest boat afloat. I'm going to be brave one of these days and take that romantic ride on the Swan :) 


The above shot was the last shot I took before standing on a honky nut (gum nut), and face planting on the path, camera flying from hand. The camera survived, whereas I, as well as dented dignity have damaged my foot, thank heavens I was wearing jeans, could have been awkward :)  Have to keep off my foot today, ex-ray and ultra sound to come.Why do these things always happen at the busiest of times! Still it could have been a lot worse.. got to look at the positives right 😉 Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

  3. Oh dear...I can certainly relate. Just last weekend I face-planted the floor of the movie theater when I missed the last step. Thankfully, nothing was broken but my pride. I hope they don't find any serious damage when you get it checked. You got some good photos.

  10. I've not heard them called honky nut, but I know what they are and they are large. I hope your injury turns out to be minor. Probably this morning it will be at its worst.

  13. Ohhh, Grace, rain!!!
    My respect! Those Gondolas look so... unstable - but the water is warm, right (just kidding) - I was too frugal to give it a go.
    Oh, what? You sure give everything here - hope all is well?! "Take care" comes to another level, as in backwards! Best wishes and hugs xox

  14. What a nasty accident but it happens everywhere. About photographing all means of traffic try to find Hot Shot Eastbound from Winston Link from 1956. Perhaps it gives some comfort. Be well soon.

  15. Oh Grace what a bad incident. Eldery people do fall a lot has a recent research confirmed here..... Unfortunately we bloggers belong to the eldery people. :(

  16. Hello Grace,
    Nice to see the daily life on that place.
    Wonderful pictures along the water with a nice view.

    Greetings, Marco

  17. The sunny days are wonderful, but at times we need some shade from the clouds and maybe some rain to cool us off and cleanse the dust from the Earth.

  18. Oh Grace, hope not too much damage was done. A fall is not good at any time, but around Christmas time it's worse!

  21. Good news about the camera but hope you have broken nothing. On the other hand I always find a break usually heals quicker than a sprain!! Take care Diane
