Our World Tuesday - Point Lonsdale

This weekend was a ‘long weekend’ with Monday (today!) being Labour Day. The day is a public holiday to commemorate the work done by the “Eight Hour Day” movement. I think we would all do well to remember the work that has been done in the past that allows us to have the lifestyles we do. I have to wonder how such social campaigns would fare these days. But enough........

I took my eight hours of leisure at Point Lonsdale – which some of you will know is hardly new ground for me!




There was a distinct autumnal feel in the air, the water was a little colder than a month or two ago, but when the sun shone it was wonderful.

I am not really much of a dog person, although I do enjoy meeting them on walks. Coming back from fishing this morning I met an Old English Sheep dog called Nigel – a rather good name I thought. And when I was having a coffee the day before I could not resist this head sticking out of the window hoping to see his owner coming.

You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the pictures.

Great captures, Stewart. Love the dog!
Too true about remembering why we have Labour Day and to remember the work of the people who agitated fro better working conditions!

He looks like a Nigel! I'm glad you had a good Holiday and even gladder than you shared it with us. We definitely should remember those who worked hard to give us what we often take for granted. (Including being able to retire.)

Hi Stewart, i love the expression of your dog, it has some unsure stare!

Sorry also for mistakenly thinking you are the founder of Blotanical. At least i said all wonderful and kind things there, haha! I didn't notice the differences on your profile pics.
