When I first saw this weeks prompt for Our Beautiful World, I wasn't overly excited. But after looking at the teams photos and seeing Robyn's 'old' car I found my inspiration!! This photo is of my Grandparents, before they were married....as you can imagine this is a much loved photo in our family. The story goes, that when Pop took my Nan for a ride on his motorbike her dress flew up and showed her bloomers and she was deeply embarrassed.
I do like 'old' things and I think this old truck is amazing, sadly it's days are over but I remember riding on the back of a truck very much like this one (something we can't do today) with a bunch of my cousins off to the Queens Gardens (a very large park) to play. It is one of my best childhood memories....
Transport plays a big part in our lives today...my husband is a train driver and this is a picture of one that he was driving at the time the photo was taken. It was being filled with zinc to be exported around the world.
And here is a bit of 'fun' transport...last September we visited my brother in law in Rockhampton. He and his partner have fun driving Blo-karts along the beach where they even have competition days with other enthusiasts. Sadly you can't ride these on every beach as you need a particular type of beach & sand because if you could...we would have one! Hubby & I (pictured here) had a ball!!!
Make sure you pop on over to check out the other amazing shots of transport from all over the world, it's a great prompt, thanks Ros.
