A Merry Christmas to all 


from my family to yours.

Today I head down to Sydney to spend the next two days with my sons
 and my daughter and her family.

Then on Boxing day I travel 500km car journey north 
to spend a couple of days with my older sister, Cathy and her family.

Then back home for New Year Eve.

Navy Centenary 2013

The Tall Ships came into Sydney Harbour on Thursday. I had the day off so I headed down to Sydney. We had gone from 30C degrees the day before to 12C on Thursday obviously many people had not checked on weather and arrived to see the TS wearing only shorts and tshirts and summer dresses. It was cloudless and sunny when I left home and when I arrived it was very wet and chilly. I heard later that it had been hailing in my local area.

I didn't take many photos as the lens was getting wet. 


The Endeavour.

A Rivercat ferry, Harbour ferry and Tall Ship.

My photography left a lot to be desired.

Haven't been on for a while, just sorting through how I want my life to develop. So far, I have been distancing myself away from a group of friends I seem to have outgrown. Same old same old.

A couple of months ago I met an old friend from 10 years ago who invited me along to a new group he had started, we meet up on Friday evenings to have dinner together and some head off to various clubs to watch and listen to music.

This seems to be more my fit. I have met some lovely people and have been invited along to a Coffee and Chat group and another social group which travel down to Sydney to visit art galleries and museums and do ferry trips. Oh! a fellow I met told me about a local camera group. Its all happening.

Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu in concert at Dawes Point
 under the Sydney Harbour Bridge on Australia Day 2013.
 Absolutely brilliant moment when as he sang a song
 a huge cruise liner paraded under the bridge.
