Thursday the manservant went off to the Observatory offices to work and I went out to play.
I visited a really long-time friend in Rose Bay. Alan and I worked together more than 30 years ago (for a period of about 10 years) and we still maintain a daily email routine even though we are on opposite sides of the world. He is now retired and his diary was busier than mine when we were trying to organise a get-together.
Rose Bay was named around 1788 after the Right Honourable George Rose who was joint Secretary to the British Treasury. It is about 7 kms (4 miles) east of the City of Sydney.
So, that means more water photos (don’t worry eventually we will be heading out into the countryside!):
He is however, an exceptional cook and had whipped up an asparagus frittata and green salad for lunch followed by divine cheese blintzes for sweets.
I had to have a lie down before I met up with the manservant and a visiting Astronomer for dinner at an Indian restaurant:……
This was a specially ordered Tarkari – it was really delicious. Health restrictions here restrict the use of silver leaf as garnish:
This is Sabza (vegetables) – it was also really good:
It was a good day to be wearing an elastic-waisted skirt!!!
