How I spent my vacation (or holiday)

If I were to post a picture of how I spent my vacation, it would only show a picture of my poor computer, but I would love to see how other members spent theirs! If you have recently returned from a holiday and have photos to share, please take advantage of this thread.

But, we need to have a few simple rules:

  1. For any photo you post in this thread, make sure you add a description of the photo. Tell us about the photo and (if you like) give us some info about your camera and photo-taking technique.

  2. If you have a gallery of vacation photos (e.g. at Facebook or on a site like Flicker), add a link to it rather than post them all here.

I am so much busy in my business that I have no spare time for vacations and I am so much sad at this. First you suggest me how to skip these business activities and find a way to some good place for vacations.

OK, this may not count (as is was a few months back) but it’s not holiday season where I live! My family spent some time in Lorne, a town along the beautiful Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. We met these gorgeous kookaburras, who were so tame that they were happy for us to pat them. If you are not familiar with these birds, they are are renowned for their raucous laughing.

I have always wondered what they looked like. When I was a little girl in brownie scouts we learned the kookaburra song.

Heh heh, I’m surprised you learned that in the U.S!

Off Topic:

Mind you, by quoting the words here you’ve potentially just brought a huge lawsuit against yourself. :smiley: One our most famous rock bands (Men at Work) got sued last year for allegedly using a short, ten-note riff from that tune in their most famous track. :frowning:

Oh WOW! I edited the post. Silly me. I learned it so long ago that I didn’t think it could still be copyright, but it apparently is.

Sorry, I was just being cheeky. I didn’t mean to scare you, but you never know, I guess! The company that now owns the song seems pretty … well, I’d better stop. :slight_smile:

I read an article about that company after I saw your post and I get your drift. They do seem pretty… well, not so pretty.

I may have some pictures after the current holiday season, we’ll see.

I too learned that song when I was younger and did not think they would take their copyright issues to such an extreme… interesting to learn but always a good thing to know haha
