Hi Nola and Jeanette. I like how the twins use rocks etc for metaphors...it's a great level of detail and makes me think about one of my novels I'm working on - what would my characters use for metaphors?
I can't say I have a favourite mountain...I grew up in Mount Gambier, SA and therefore have a great fondness for that mountain and the beautiful Blue Lake, but I'm not sure if that counts! Otherwise, the view from the top of Ubirr in Kakadu, NT is absolutely take-your-breath-away stunning, but again, I don't think that qualifies as a mountain ☺
Thanks Sally. It was fun thinking up the different metaphors for the twins and for Zadeki :) As for mountains - that can be a relative term. Mount Cootha in Brisbane is just officially a mountain but would appear more like a slight blimp in the Himalayas or the Andes. I love the blue lake at Mount Gambia - but have never been to Kadadu - maybe one day...
Thanks Sally. I went to Mt Gambier many years ago and really liked it. I also did a day trip to Kakadu, but don't think I made it to the mountain you're talking about. :) I live on top of a mountain in Toowoomba, so I guess I'm pretty partial to that one (actually part of the Great Dividing Range). But for stunning mountain vistas, Newfoundland and other parts of Canada are probably my faves. thanks for commenting.
