Something Different

The word prompt from the Lens-artists challenge #40: Something Different

Recently I had some visitors from Taiwan who enjoyed their tea. They had something different to drink their tea from when travelling. I found the set quite interesting. I hope you do too.

Take out the cups. Put tea in the “teapot”

Which Way – March 7

It’s time for a Which Way post

Earlier this week, we went to Macleay Island one of the many islands in Morton bay. As we had stuff to do, we took the car ferry. Here is the story.
The ferry arrived loaded with cars and trucks190309_blog_challenge_which_way_ferry1
and this bloke

The crew decided on the order of loading

At the first stop, Karragarra Island the truck was the only one to get off.

Catch the Train

The inspirational quote from Debbie at Travel with Intent

The only way of catching a train I ever discovered is to miss the train before. 
– G.K. Chesterton

Make sure you get to the station early

Everyone will be rushing for their train

Always book a seat
