  12. Bathing is not a chore or a necessity but a good dose of fun for this character. And it looks like a good water gym workout too. Great series of photos.

  21. Great set of shots - we had these rather splendid ducks on a dam behind the house we rented in the hills behind Lorne last week.

    If the truth be told, the pictures in my "collection" were taken on family trips, rather than work trips. Work tends not to send me away as often as it did in the past.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne.

    PS: sorry for slow reply, I have been "off the grid" for a week.
