Camera Talk - part 2

Wonderful photos Liri - love the ones that show how the same view changes with the light and the weather

Just caught up on ths thread for the first time for ages (stuck in an airport, with a delayed plane ).  Love the Bay of Gardens photos Fidget .....maybe a stopover next time we head downunder.  And Great atmospheric views from Scroggin, Joyce and Fairy.  Don’t think I’d be getting that close to those deer though 

Thanks for taking the time to share.  Maybe when we’re home (and I’m getting withdrawal symptoms) I’ll put on a selection of my Aussie highlights πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Welcome back Liri, and many congrats on your new grandson .  Will you get to visit soon?  Hope OH is soon on the road to recovery = sounds nasty 

The thingies are fairies, Fairy.  They are new additions to the emoji library - didn’t realise not everybody can see them 

Aunty Rach - R4 don’t get editing rights to the music choices on DiD - you get some very un-R4 stuff on there 

Great news for Possum = are both the options in Belgium? Sorry the last few weeks have been stressful for all.

Expecting more rain here Pat - plus the temps have dropped from 36 to 16 .  Think we are being gradually acclimatised for coming home

We’re ok Pat - staying in Port Fairy tonight (how could we not 🧚🏻‍β™€οΈπŸ§šπŸ»‍β™€οΈπŸ§šπŸ»‍♀️).  Have had hardly any rain all day, and the Great Ocean Road was stunning 

Seems from the news that Melbourne is getting pretty soggy though - back there tomorrow night, so we shall see.

Fab bike Hosta - would be great to put it through its paces somewhere special .  Hope you’re enjoying your bday - is there cake πŸŽ‚ ?

Prefab Sprout there’s a blast from the past

Happy Birthday Hosta ......your birthday has well and truly started here, even if you do still have a few more hours to wait where you are.

Off to drive the Great Ocean Road today  πŸŒ‚πŸŒŠπŸ’¦πŸŒŠ

Hi Pat, welcome back Bushman

Boiling hot here in Melbourne, but apparently about to get unprecedented rainstorms - local news full of dire predictions of flooding .  Not sure my “emergency rain poncho” is going to cut the mustard β˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈ

I like the beeps on my car - helps improve my appalling parking skills 

Petal sounds perfect for your wallaby Pat .  Hot here too !

Glad Lizzie and Dove had a good catchup - got a soft spot for Norwich myself.

Thanks for the Olgas tips Obxx - sadly we have run out of evenings - but did our own star gazing session last night - most disorienting to find poor old Orion upside down.  We loved the Manley ferry trip though.

LilyP - flies have not bothered us as I have been rocking this look .....rather fetching, I’m sure you’ll agree

Leave for Melbourne early tomorrow - but have fallen in love 😍 with the red centre
