We spent a day out at the Lake Barrine, north of Cairns in Australia.
Having lunch out there and taking a boat ride in the lake is unforgettable.
There are many pictures taken there I like, as the lake and the environs are so serene, full of flora, fauna, birds and even snakes.
Many of the beautiful pictures, however, have my wife in them. The only one which I can find without any person is posted here.
Very picturesque indeed!
Here are two pictures which has a similar theme.
Both have green hills, blue sky and clouds.
Both give a sense of serenity.
The top one was taken in Kota Kinabalu, East Malaysia.
While the second one was taken north of Cairns, Australia.
This is the biggest gathering of pelicans which I have seen.
The picture was taken in Cairns, Australia during Summer when we have a stroll along the seaside.
I like the contrast in colors and the bluish tint in the photo.
Don’t think I can leave this challenge without submitting another entry.
The following photos were taken in Paronella Park near Cairns, Australia.
Joe Paronella, a Spanish immigrant, built this park in the 1930s and opened it to the public.
Apart from his house which was built from stones, the castle shown here are in reinforced concrete, with the reinforcing came from the railroad.
The castle structures are now approximately 80 years old.
In building this park, Joe and his family has labored for many years.
Showing these images in sepia bring me back to the 1930s. I have much joy in sharing them!
