Welcome To Bronte

Never really did the Bronte thing, what with being a Glebite and all, but now, we have this relatively new bus service, the 440, must be Clover trying to join the Left and right of City Of Sydney.
So today, I felt like a bit of a kid, well, physically being an Invalid probably completes the picture.
No complaints, after swimming a few laps in the tidal pool, sought the shade amongst the trees, not always easy to find on Sydney beaches. Must do it again.

Goodbye Old Peppermint Gum

After four days and nights of constant heavy rain, I guess something had to give, I was only thinking, apart from a bit of cabin fever how unaffected we were. Well, then the old peppermint gum standing guard outside our front gate toppled over in dramatic fashion, soft soil, rising water table, perhaps not a very deep root system, possibly due to sandstone? Whatever, it came down.

GraysonPerry @ The MCA

Grayson Perry the cross dresser from Essex, happily married with kids, heavy social comment. We had to pay to see his work! I did though, really appreciate the work, some masterpieces there, took over the whole floor, very dense, very prodigious, very envious of the man, he is driven.

Café - Madame Frou Frou

Back to the cafes, Madame Frou Frou, along Glebe Point Road, towards the better end, quiet and civilised, nice if you are in that mood.

On The Buses

The title of course was a long running British sitcom of the sixties, no relation.
Buses of that vintage were running along George Street on Saturday for the very last time before work commences on the light rail, what fun.



Have your fare ready boys and girls, all your ha'pennys and
threepences, all your bobs and florins. 

Back From AGNSW

Saw a Japanese film, what else, at the gallery then walked back through The Domain and Sydney Hospital, always pleasant.

The Star

A celebration. We thought some swimming would be good, hotel with a pool. The Star was the closest and had a good sized pool, only bummer, it was cold. However, it has now become a food destination, so there we were in our capsule, very enjoyable, didn't of course go anywhere near the gaming tables, in fact they are quite removed when staying in the hotel. The Japanese breakfast at Sokyo was memorable, felt like we were back in Japan.
Taken with my new 'are, bure, boke' pocket camera.
