I have a great weekend planned for the weekend
5th-6th June.
First, I will be in Sydney on Saturday 5th June to attend my son, Nicholas, birthday get-together at The Rocks. I will be only staying for the morning tea session as he and his friends plan to make it an all-dayer, as they all work different shifts, it makes it easier to organise.
I love The Rocks area its a great tourist spot
and there is always something happening there.


Sydney Film Festival 2010

I will be attending 3 films
at the Sydney Film Festival.

The first film, 'The Last Train Home'
will be shown at the Dendy Opera Quays cinema
(The Opera Quays cinema is situated bottom right of picture.)

I have passed by the cinema countless times on my way
to the Sydney Opera House so when I was looking at the
program of films to see I thought what a great time to go.

My next 2 films will be shown at the
Event Cinema 9 in George Street.
The first session will be The New Tenants,
Winner of Best Live Action Short at the 2010 Academy Awards®,

to be followed by the documentary 'Just Like Us'.

Director, Ahmed Ahmed sets out to break down barriers
with comedy,
by taking a group of US stand-up comics
(from a variety of backgrounds) on a tour of the Middle East.

One of the most exciting and sometimes scary ferry rides is the Manly to Circular Quay, Sydney commuter runs. The ferry has to pass by North and South Heads at the entrance to Sydney Harbour. Below is a video filmed on a wet and stormy day on run past the Heads in 2007.
The Manly ferry looks like it is surfing the waves.

Years ago when I was a teenager my parents took my sisters and I by train journey to Cairns to visit my fathers family. My aunt and uncle thought a ferry trip out to Green Island would be a nice day trip, it was until it was time to return back to the mainland. A storm came up as we were heading back to the wharf. Auntie was getting worried when my sisters and I went out on deck but my mother assured her we were ok as living in a harbour city we were quite use to riding ferries and especially the Manly ferry.
