  1. After walking Max, I caught up with a girlfriend who had just returned from a 3 week roadtrip of Tasmania. Before she left I asked since they were going past Burnie, if she would mind popping into the Distillery there and buying me a bottle of the coffee liqueur that I bought there for Dad during my cruise stop back in February (he had just finished the bottle that week and loved it). Whilst she was buying the coffee liqueur for me, her husband bought himself a bottle of $170 AUD whiskey. Later, in the trip they saw this beautiful box of mixed mushrooms for sale $35 AUD.
  2. Sydney was the coldest capital city in Australia yesterday and we are apparently on our sixth wet weekend in a row, so our planned Blue Mountains hike is on hold for a while yet. Instead, Max is getting 4km hikes in the rain with me (which he loves) and I am following a young Australian currently hiking The Pacific Crest Trail and we are planning to watch a new Australian movie about an a guy walking Camino de Santiago. Max relaxing after our walk in the rain yesterday.
  3. @TravelGirlinDallas how dare they dump stuff like that. Too many selfish people around unfortunately. @Keksie sorry you have a kidney stone & had the run around for the meds. Feel better soon. @DaniDanielle & @MancGirl21 Happy Birthday 🎂
  4. Now, that looks delicious. All I can think though is how quickly it would melt out here. A sundae with whipped cream and cherries on top - haven’t had that in decades either.
  5. Now that’s a blast from the past. Haven’t had a banana split for decades. Mum used to serve them up when we were kids. Looks yum.
  6. @jagsfan How are you going with your rehab after your nasty fall? I am hoping you are a bit more mobile & experiencing less pain. Not sure if you are still checking in on cc but I think of you every time I take a photo of our birdlife.
  7. @firefly333 you are going to be so relieved when you finally settle into your place and are able to put the stress and frustrations of this shoddy move behind you
  8. @Sea Dog Glad the MRI is over for you. Enjoy that first drink when you are permitted. Best wishes for you report.
  9. @DaniDanielle Congratulations to your grandson on his excellent academic achievements. @mo&fran my sincere condolences on the sudden unexpected passing of your wife.
  10. @Sea Dog Hi Greg, I have used the cream on my face (twice). The cream is worth doing. Your skin will turn an ugly red, it will be sun sensitive whilst you use the cream. My GP told me to start using it in the cooler months & stay in the shade/indoors as as as possible. My top tip is to apply it in the bathroom and wash your hands immediately afterwards (you don’t want to rub it in your eyes). If I were you, I would be stopping the pups from licking your head immediately so they get the message before you start using the cream. You don’t want them licking it off - for their health and yours - you want the cream to be undisturbed to be effective.
  11. @George C & @Tree_skiersorry your wife & grandson have had nasty injuries. Wishing them both a full recovery. DH’s nephew has been crocheting some beautiful beanies (torques) since being bedridden from his nasty snowboarding accident. He is hoping he will finally able to put weight on his leg soon. DD still has issues with her ankle. Swelling after a long day standing. She has bought a mountain bike and is starting some riding in her free time.
  12. It was a very mild Friday evening in Sydney, so decided to head into the city for a look at some of the light installations for this year’s Vivid This was a holographic light & water show at Darling Harbour featuring Australian native fauna - Sturts Desert Pea above and our Waratah in the other two photos. This was a three screen circular outdoor installation at Barangaroo, called “Nest” featuring dancing Brolgas (above) and parrots. Only so much walking can be done in one night. Heading back in again next weekend to see the light installations at the Botanical Gardens and the drone show for which the Vivid organisers are expecting huge crowds as it will the King’s Birthday long weekend here.
  13. Unless you are doing a tour that includes it, your plan to visit Featherdale independently on a day separate to your Blue Mountains trip is a good one. Easy to get to via public transport. Train, then bus that drops you at the entrance (check the bus timetables) or you can catch a taxi there from the train station. Featherdale is a nice small zoo with native animals and lots of Australian birds.
  14. Beautiful Sunday in Jervis Bay. DH started the day by seeing a kangaroo hopping down our street…Then we did a lovely morning walk through the Jervis Bay National Park passing by several gorgeous white sand beaches. Delighted to see dolphins. Had a delicious late lunch in the local cafe. From our table outdoors, I spotted a kangaroo happily munching the grass in someone’s backyard opposite. Then we had a little adventure in the Boodoree National Park heading out to see the ruined Lighthouse. The Lighthouse ruins site is a great place to whale watch. It’s only the beginning of the season, so we were delighted to see three humpbacks passing by.
