ABC Wednesday – J

Here is my choice for this week’s “ABC Wednesday” – brought to you by the Letter “J” … “J is for Jail cells” at the Old Melbourne Gaol:

This week’s theme is ”Funny” and this seemed hilarious at the time of taking the photo. Mum and I hijacked my ex-flatmate’s (and at the time best friend in Melbourne) childhood toy when I moved out of our flat to live on my own. We took him (Bukta the soccer hero) down to St Kilda beach and made up a little beach hammock out of a hankie and two chopsticks – then took photos on my mobile phone and sent them to Frazier with a message saying “Dear Daddy, I am having a wonderful time on holiday with Auntie Anne in Elwood” … Mum and I howled for hours, and Frazier thought it was pretty damned funny too 🙂

This week’s theme is ”Twelve” and my choice is the “Twelve Apostles” on the Great Ocean Road, between Melbourne and Adelaide. If you ever get the chance, it is a wonderful scenic drive along the coast. Alas, one of the Apostles crumbled into the ocean in recent years, so I wonder if it will be renamed the Eleven Apostles 😛
