Join us on a visit to Sydney’s wonderful Aquarium. Watch the video see pictures of beautiful fish. There is an underwater glass tunnel. We literally walked among the sharks. We also went on a virtual reality dive with sharks. Amazing.

When visiting Sydney, a visit to the Aquarium is a must. It is in Barangaroo, a short ferry ride from Circular Quay. I hope you enjoy the video.

Kiera

KIERA’S LAMENT

I lie in stillness needing peace
And beg my mind to please release
For thoughts of anguish and of pain
Transfer to me from dear Ukraine.
I feel them, sense them, hear their cries
Winged by clouds across the skies….
And screams from wounds keep me awake
How to deal with this heartbreak?
Blessed Angels hear my plea
(Even though a dog I be)
Wrap Ukraine in wings of love
Ask for forces from above.
I’ll shout, I’ll whine and bark out loud
For this country now so proud….
Till this fight is put to bed
Man nor beast can rest his head
Make haste dear Angels, show you care
Will you hear a doggy ‘s prayer?

Die Hell – Gamkaskloof Swartberg Mountain Range – South Africa

These pictures were taken in “Die Hell”. I have tried to turn the pictures into an animated slide show with voice over using iMovie which comes with my iPhone 12. I am learning by doing. Please enjoy my very amateur first effort. And yes. my advice is only go there with a 4X4. It us really worth the adventurous effort.

Sorry the video goes black at the end. Lots to learn!

Thanks.
