BS: WAV with Pics

From: WalkaboutsVerse

Hi all:

In my free time the last few years, my hobby has been going back to places I visited in Walkabouts: Travels and Conclusions in Verse/WalkaboutsVerse/WAV with a bridge camera.

Here is one example from a recent visit to Rome - quite timely as the Giro cycling and the Italian Open Tennis are currently on:

"A Beautiful Stage"

...stayed in Ostia and had about one day on the coast, one day walking about the city, and one day watching tennis at the wonderful Foro Italico.

There are so many beautiful sites in Rome but, of course, people know it and there are big crowds and queues at most of them.

Even if no one else is able to say it, Well Done.
Was it easy?

Thanks, Donuel:

It was easier last time in 1988, in my early 20s!

But I remembered that - unlike spacious Paris where the good underground is really needed - Rome is a walkabout city and this visit confirmed that.

I took the metro to the Vatican then walked a scenic route - in the order of the photos - to the Colosseum, buying an umbrella and wiping my camera lens a lot in the changeable weather that day.

The other 2 days, I took it easier - on the coast and at the tennis.

Excellent selection, WAV. Reminds me of a wonderful week my late wife and I spent in Italy. Thank you.

Where did you visit, FB?

So many beautiful places in Italy, of course - and I'm being reminded of this now by the helicopter cameras covering the Giro cycling.

I think you hit the wrong button, Dave, but keeping calm and carrying on with upper lip stiff...

Not to compare myself in any other way, Gandhi and Mandela probably disliked their status quo at least as much as I do - one fought with non-violent non-cooperation, the latter resorted to terrorism.

Having been born in Saint Mary's Hospital, Manchester, the day Alf Ramsey's English team won the FIFA World Cup, and been highly trained in Australia and (too a lesser extent) England, I keep promoting WalkaboutsVerse

(The lazy answer would have been - if you don't like it, go to hell.)

thanks for the pics, the other beaches are a tad different to Australia's beaches!

Agreed, Sandra - although not a surfie, I have bumped into a few of our world's most famous beaches and those around Sydney are hard to beat.

And, when I visit my elderly parents there every year, what I appreciate most is the beautiful rock pools (as in the above Cronulla poem), where I can enjoy the fresh sea water, without too much swell, such that I can keep my glasses on.

No - I had to do a web-search, Sandman; is it the chap in the news on trial at the moment?

Either way, I hope to get back into both the folk and poetry club and festival scenes again but, as I say, I've been spending a fair bit of my spare time lately revisiting places with my camera.

The Irish dpp said there was insufficent evidence to prosecute, in france you are guilty until you can prove your innocence, he is being tried in his absence in france, it is [as i understand] a civil case which requires less evidence.

He lives in Manchester now, Sandman? May have been on the local news which I have missed lately due to watching Roland Garros and the Giro, after work.
