Sydney……………

I am now in Sydney, where I am enjoying the wonderful hospitality and excellent good humor of my friend Scott; he has very kindly offered me accommodation in his beautiful waterfront house in Sydney, for the couple of weeks that I shall be here, an offer that I have gleefully accepted…………….another good decision, it is so lovely here, quiet and tranquil,  with the house situated  to look out across a splendid bay……………..

 

I arrived here last Friday and Scott kindly collected me from the Airport, with his two friendly and charming  kids, Sophie and Matthew; on Saturday the four of us went for a coastal walk, with Scott’s lovely girlfriend Cindy, her two kids, Ella and Euan and their two dogs………………..we walked from Clovelly to Bronte and to a headland overlooking Bondi beach, which took about an hour and a half each way; it was a lovely sunny day, about 28 Celsius with a nice cooling onshore breeze………………………..

Local fisherman………….a cormorant ……………

An aptly named Rainbow Lorikeet, these colourful birds are to be seen flying around Scott’s house everyday……………………………………….
