Postcards from a different time

A time when we could be out and about.

I tried out some of the suggestions in Sandy’s post. This is using the media plus text block.

King Penguins

Volunteer Point

Falkland Islands

These are from messing about in Canva:

Happy memories to all.

Upland goose: geese don’t seem as fun and special as penguins, but this one looks handsome in black and white.

The Uttermost Part of the Earth

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week brought to mind my very brief visit to Harberton on Tierra del Fuego.

Worthy of note: the skeletons are from animals that died and were washed up. This was a pretty cool little natural history museum put together by the family that lived in Harberton. I really liked how they showed the animals in context.
