A Word a Week : Round

This week Sue’s dictionary has given us the word “round“.(Click here to go to “A word in your ear”) So many things are round in shape, but I thought about a circle of friends. When travelling to meet new friends and catch up with old ones is one of the delights and memorable occasions that stay in your mind for ever.

Dinner with friends at Margaret River

Dinner with friends at Margaret River

I first met Carroll and Jack five years ago when I stayed with them in their beautiful cottage in Margaret River. They took me around and introduced me to the many attractions. This was the start of my love affair with Margaret River, it is now acknowledged as Australia’s  best town to live in.

I couldn’t wait to return and this time I had “my Jack” with me.  This delicious meal we shared around a round table, a circle of friendship and warmth renewed.

On another occasion Jack and I sat with our thermos of coffee and sandwiches after walking around the beautiful Araluen Botanic Gardens in the Perth hills. We were delighted when this group of people from Afghanistan invited us to join them at their picnic. They assured us they had plenty to share. Just look at the spread, it was delicious. The women were sitting at a separate area. I became a surrogate man and joined this group. But later joined the women.


These are just a few more round things…
