A Rhodesian in London

This is my latest writing.

It is being 'released' at the Salisbury, Wiltshire Braaibeque on 1st September.  A Braaivleis is a Barbecue.  

The book will then be available on my Lulu Website for one month - until 30th September 2012 - as an exclusive purchase to help Zimbabwe Pensioners, in that all profits from Sales - currently £1.15 per book - will be sent to the Organisation supported by the Braai.  

The book is a series of fictional anecdotes about a young Rhodesian. The Blurb reads:- 

A Rhodesian in London" is a 'Tongue in Cheek' look at a typical Rhodesian youngster in those halcyon days before the Bush War took its toll and changed the country and her people forever. In a series of anecdotes it takes the reader back to an era that is now only a fond memory of times gone by. Here you will catch a glimpse of holidays in Portuguese East Africa, cheap flights to Europe and what the youngsters got up to whilst away from their parents. You will also learn how the Hero, whose name is Randolph, acquired the nick name 'Rabid Randy' on his last holiday in Beira before flying to London. Here you will learn of his attempts to lose his virginity. Did he succeed? Read on to find out.

I will post a link to enable anyone who wishes to purchase a copy whilst, at the same time, assisting the old people of Zimbabwe, later on.

A Walk Around Placencia in Belize

I was very privileged to spend a lot of time in Belize and nowhere was better than Placencia.  The Locals were more than friendly; the resorts were first class and the food out of this world.

It was here that I wrote two of my books about Belize and its people.  I am proud of the fact that one of them was handed to the Prime Minister of the Country as a showcase of all that is being done by his Government and what the people would like.

Come with me and enjoy my view of Placencia through my Camera Lens.

A Walk Around uShaka Aquarium, Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

This is the best Aquarium I have visited.  As you approach you come to an old wreck of an Ocean Going ship.  At least that is what it looks like.  As you get closer you see the signs.

Why not come along with me?

Enjoy looking at the photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them.

A walk Around KwaZulu Natal, South Africa ~ 2007

This next Walk I took was in the Republic of South Africa.  It was during the early part of 2007 into winter.  The weather in KwaZulu Natal is particularly good and fine at that time of the year.

I hope you enjoy looking at the photos of the Tour as much as I did taking them.

A Time for Reflection

As we approach the end of the Northern Summer it is time to reflect on what has been accomplished, not only in the past twelve months, but also in the past few years.

I was 'retired' by the Railways some 6 years ago now.  Since then I have been privileged to visit various parts of the World.  Due to modern technology I have been able to record those trips 'on film' as they said in the olden days but in the modern idiom 'digitally'.

During the last few days I have looked once again at the old photographs, cringing when I saw the quality of the oldest ones.

So, I thought, maybe I can share my journey as an amateur photographer with anyone who reads my Blog.

I hope you enjoy the trip but if not you can always press the ESCAPE button.
