And so the posting continues …..
257a – dinner one night at a Korean restaurant in Sydney – this was so good!
257b – Same day as the Korean dinner – the nesting plovers on Macquarie University grounds. For more than a week we monitored this couple as they waited for their brood to hatch. We never saw how many eggs were in the nest and we left before they hatched.
258a – Some of Sydney’s central business district (CBD) behind King Street wharf. Taken while standing on the Pyrmont Bridge at Darling Harbour.
258b – looking back from Sydney CBD to Pyrmont across Darling Harbour – after walking across the old Pyrmont Bridge which used to carry cars but now only carries feet.
259a – Some of Cudgegong Waters (Windamere Lake) – between Rylstone and Mudgee.
259b this is coming down out of the Blue Mountains into Lithgow. There used to be a sign here saying “No Standing”.. That used to make me laugh as I could not imagine anyone silly enough to park on the rough track aka a safety ramp – I’m glad I never had to use it because my brakes failed! (for safety’s sake, the manservant actually took this photo as I was driving).
260 The Anglo-Australian Telescope stretching up into the clouds – you can barely make out the white dome against the white clouds.
261 I spent a very pleasant sleepover at a friend’s place in one of these terrace houses which are what we call row houses here in DC. Her house is very deep and has a really long but narrow backyard. The bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs and the stair case is one of those itsy spiral things! We drank heaps and into the wee hours so I’d be so dehydrated I didn’t need to get up and risk injuring myself during the night.
262 My daughter-in-law cooked me a baked dinner when I stayed with them. I think that means she likes me as that is my favourite meal!
263 Across the street from my son’s – this made me laugh every time I looked at it. I want better than standard food and I never decided if the hardware place next door meant to have “taps” or “tubs” on their sign.
