Once again, I’ve signed up to the Round Robin Photo Challenge; the theme this time is ‘Floating’.  For someone that doesn’t swim but loves the water, these images pop up in my mind instantly.

Here I am reminiscing the past, sharing with you some of my earlier captures.   


A  freezing January morning at Heritage Park, Calgary, Canada.  Still and serene with temperature down to minus 25 C.

A change of scenery, the Water Lily Pond at Hong Kong Park.


 A balmy afternoon at Manly Beach, New South Wales, Australia. 

12 Apostles

The Twelve Apostles are located along the spectacular Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia.  I listened to the crashing waves and stood by the sea in awe of it’s massiveness and it’s brillance.  Praise the Lord for His creation.


A lone branch was afloat at Glenmnore Park, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

A view from Watsons Bay, the Sydney skyline is across the water.

Not to be alarmed….this Shark is at the Sydney Aquarium.


Star Ferry and the Ocean Terminal – Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong.


An unforgettable Sydney Harbour sailing experience.

I’ve always loved the sea, that’s why I moved back to Hong Kong some years ago.  There’s nothing like living near the water, the calmness and serenity keep me sane.

Maybe one day I’ll  learn how to float…I can only hope.

  10. Heritage Park? I can’t believe it. It looks like a mysterious fishing village in a distant land, a dream like vision almost … I love that pic. All the others are fun and great, but this first one has some soul in it.
