Saggitarius


Shot yesterday on my 83rd Birthday, 21 December at Point Lonsdale on the Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria.
It is situated adjacent to The Rip, which is the entrance to Port Phillip Bay upon which Melbourne is sited.


The vehicular ferry, Spirit of Tasmania is seen on the horizon heading south into Bass Strait to Devonport, Tasmania - it's an outrageously expensive crossing

A young snorkel diver having fun and cruelly making me feel my age


The Point Lonsdale Pier at the end of which recreational fishermen cast their lines

Long shot

All shot with my phone camera as I decided to leave the OMD at home for a change. I was trying to break my long lens addiction

Many happy returns for yesterday Mark. Nice place to spend your birthday. Only you could engineer the maximum time for your birthday, on the longest day of the year

Thanks Phill, yes I've always liked the notion of being born in 1935, the year that never was, and on the summer solstice. I share the day with the Delai Lama.

Belatedly, Many Happy Returns of the Day, Mark. Our granddaughter, Hannah, was born on 21st June, so she, too, joins you in celebrating her birthday on the longest day of the year - six months apart!

Regards,
Anne

Thanks Anne, the only difference between being born on your longest day, and ours is that on yours no one is likely to forget it, whereas on ours it gets rolled into the turmoil of Christmas and often forgotten. As a kid, I recall getting one prezzie for both, while for my sibs it was a separate occasion!

Thanks Mark, no need to apologise, as explained to Anne, I'm used to it - like for example, one year I was given a canoe for my birthday and a paddle for Christmas.

Up the creek without a paddle comes to mind.

I hope you enjoyed your day - belated birthday wishes Mark.

Re: Saggitarius

Happy belated birthday, Mark. May you continue to entertain us with great Ozzie images for many years to come!

My fatherís birthday was on the 21st and mineís early in January, so we well know how daft a time of year it is to try to celebrate a birthday. In fact, my favourite uncle deliberately used to send me my birthday present 2 months late because he appreciated this, and I knew I could rely on him to give something good

Yeah - in recent years I've celebrated all my significant birthdays with a party 6 months late! Much more sensible in the UK.

Barrie, that well known creek features in AAMI's road side assistance TV ad.
It is well worth watching, hilarious!

My father’s birthday was on the 21st and mine’s early in January, so we well know how daft a time of year it is to try to celebrate a birthday. In fact, my favourite uncle deliberately used to send me my birthday present 2 months late because he appreciated this, and I knew I could rely on him to give something good
Thanks Mark. By coincidence the proximity of yours and your father's birthday mirror mine and my eldest daughter's birthday on January 18. Receiving your uncle's gift two months late was thoughtful timing.

December must be a very expensive month for you, Mark!

Likewise, in my late teens I declared that henceforth my birthday was to be celebrated on a day that all could remember, April 1st, and for some years it was!
