Lordy, we wanted a peaceful walk on St Kilda Pier and we were buzzed by a drone.
This is not highly zoomed. It came damn close. Would it hurt if it hit? The operator seemed to be inexperienced. Apparently is it called a four something chopper.
What are swans doing in salt water? As we walked back along the pier, the swans paced us as they paddled towards the grass beds in the shallows. Better check Fruit Cake's post on similar for proper information. Amazing that she and I were both surprised by seeing swans in salt water on almost the same day.
Soaking up the sunshine. It was a glorious day.
Pier works, the information is online, but I just don't have the energy.

Meanwhile back at the Highrise, we had visited a new Masters store where the Toronga drive in movie place used to be. Not long after R and I met, we went to that drive in to see Grease. Sadly, almost unbelievably now, we were both overcome with passion for each other and did not see the end. Not sure that there was much of a story anyway.
Masters had all the atmosphere of a modern shopping centre and the nearby small shopping centre had all the atmosphere of a small modern shopping centre. Praise to Masters though, for their very nice staff. While we sipped coffee, we eavesdropped on someone bragging about living in an apartment in the complex to an acquaintance. I thought luv, I thought pet, I thought luv, don't bung it on too much. You live above a hardware shop at a shopping centre.
I bought a new shower cleaning hose to replace the ten year old yellowed and cracked one. It has a kink or two. Don't we all. It will straighten out in time. While it is great for cleaning the shower, it has other uses too.
We had also visited the Port Melbourne Woolworths owned Thomas Dux supermarket. Think something like Waitrose if you are in the UK. I was amused by the Boy Bathroom Cleaner, which is somewhat stronger than the Girl Bathroom Cleaner. Boys are filthy beasts, hey Hels.
Yes, as a child I received some spit and polish, Mother's spit onto a handkerchief to polish away supposed dirt from my face.
This one is for you Victor. Yes, I know you live in the salubrious eastern suburbs and nowhere near either of such slummy places but it is Sydney and by the number of links I have made already, I am in an ingratiating mood.
Rainbows happen in the strangest of places.
The RSPCA Million Paws Walk fundraiser. While we are barren like PM Julia and so without dog, we have participated in the past with friends who have dogs. It is only a 3.4 kilometre circuit of the lake, plus half a kilometre to get there from the Highrise. I've only done the full distance to and from home twice, the last time pleased to note there were emergency call markers. You notice these things when you get to a certain age.
