Historical Monuments

The theme this week at Our BeautifulWorld #71 is Historical Monuments.

There are a number of historical monuments in and around Geelong so I had great plans for Saturday.  Unfortunately I woke with a migraine.  Then my lovely husband came home from visiting his mother in Ballarat and he had taken some photos for me.  What a sweet man.

The first photograph is of the Olympic Games Monument at Lake Wendouree, at the end of the rowing course.  In 1956 the Olympic Games were held in Melbourne.  The rowing and canoeing events were held on Lake Wendouree, Ballarat.


This is the Olympic Creed. 

The second group pf photographs is the Memorial to AustralianPrisoners of War.  Again at Lake Wendouree, Ballarat.




Take care and thank you for visiting.
