We could all learn from nature. You don’t have to fight you can stand side by side even if you different or not.
Elevenses? Not at 1:40 pm?
Jetty Road, Glenelg.
We must be in McLaren Vale territory as a bottle of d’Arenberg Laughing Magpie has arrived.
With a bottle of Cooper’s Pale Ale to accompany it does life get any better?
It’s Adelaide so it must be Wednesday. New Holland Honey Eater greets us at McGee Mews.
Chinese New Year and rabbits are doing tai chi in Custom House square.
Off to the Blue Mountains on our secret escape.
Sydney and it was ready for a party.
Chinese New Year and the city had encompassed the celebrations.
Sadly time came to depart and we reflected that our stay was too short. We had been looked after wonderfully by Pam & Tony and feel we must return to this beautiful and peaceful part of Australia. We knew it would be nice but we weren’t prepared for the stunning scenery made all the better by the Aussie sun and two special people. Thank you so much Pam & Tony.
The current Mrs Smith could be found beachcombing on the Tomaree Peninsula at Birubi Beach, which forms part of the Stockton Beach and is the largest moving coastal sand mass in the Southern Hemisphere. A beautiful woman and a magic place.
Last night we had the Nelson Bay Golf Club, Kangaroo Safari experience with Ranger Barry. Wild kangaroos have made themselves at home on the golf course and although accepted do damage the infrastructure. The solution was to cull them but a better solution was found using birth control. The University of Sydney and NBGC have teamed up along with the Club to formulate a Kangaroo Management Plan. Barry was very entertaining and informative and we all came away richer for the experience and our knowledge of kangaroos significantly enhanced. If your are in Nelson Bay area book a safari, you will not be disappointed. Thank you very much Barry it was a lot of fun.
First morning in Corlette and that young Gazelle Tony had me up at first light to go mountain climbing. Tomaree Head with it’s summit 161 metres above Port Stephens NSW was waiting and had to be conquered.
If you undertake the challenge start early and make sure you have plenty of water and for the more senior of you, take your time. Comply to all of that and you will be magnificently rewarded.
Early arrival into Sydney with Cathay Pacific and we were fortunate the lovely Pam & Tony Knife were waiting for us and whisked us off to Corlette, Port Stephens NSW. The smell of the Frangipani greeted us at the wonderful Knife ✩✩✩✩✩ Chateau.
