Summer Bay at Palm Beach

This is where they shoot the TV series Home and Away. The sun is always shining on TV - just like the song.

Perfect spring day, but I like swimming better than shopping.

Don't sweat the small stuff

The label of my new Wolf Kanat suit. Sadly after one use it has stained and ruined a new shirt. Actually I am going to seat it - and get a refund.

North Avalon looking south

It is the warmest October ever, scorching hot even early. The ocean however is still refreshingly cool- about 18 degrees.

South Sydney Rabbitohs at Town Hall

The sport with the biggest following in Sydney is Rugby League. The season has just ended and the premiers are the Bunnies. The South Sydney Rabbitohs last won in 1971, hence the jubilation for their fans. Yesterday they were presented with the keys to the city, a first for a league team. Russell Crowe is part owner and the game was a particulary brutal one against the Bulldogs. The bunnies best, Sam Burgess, broke his eye socket in the opening minute and played on.

View from North Head

This is the entrance to Sydney Harbour or Port Jackson. I am on North Head looking to South Head. This is where the first fleet sailed into in 1788. Captain Cook sailed past in 1770, naming it, but not entering.
