but the memory of Australia lingers on. The warmth and thoughts of family and friends left behind. Here is a last selection of photographs from this trip, taken during the course of last week, when I visited Prahan Market off Chapel Street, walked my granddaughter to school when we saw colourful cockatoos in the bottlebrush trees, recorded a playground rainbow since washed away by rain, and finally revisited South Melbourne Market - one of my favourite places on the planet. And then, after a fourteen and a half hour night time flight from Melbourne to Qatar, a distant glimpse of Doha from the plane before taking off for Edinburgh, the happy sight of North Berwick below seven hours later, and finally the three bridges across the Firth of Forth as we came into land, safely home.
the running wave
Welcome to the running wave, which I set up as a vehicle for my photographs, with some observational chat. I hope you enjoy the things I enjoy, sharing my walks with Tilly and Ted, and other excursions I have from time to time.
