Otford to Garie Beach

Stopping for lunch at Burning PalmsThis passed Sunday we revisited Royal National Park with a family friend and attempted a five hour 9-10km hike from Otford lookout to Garie Beach. This is famed to be the best hike in south Sydney, and is one of the top five most beautiful hikes I've ever been on. We were... Continue Reading →

Narabeen Ocean Pools

The last three weeks happened all in a day. Had I blinked, I would have missed them completely. It started with a visit from Paul's cousins from Auckland, followed by a weekend of fun with a GE colleague, ending in our Anniversary today. Somewhere in between we managed to film a family movie and take... Continue Reading →

Bobbin Head Mangroves & Birrawana Loop

For the last month our family has been vacationing in America with grandparents, extended family and friends. Today was our first family hike in over a month, and my body felt every extra bite of Amish donuts as we descended down the Birrawana loop to Bobbin Head playground. It was a short 2km route, clean... Continue Reading →

Mosman to the Rocks track walk

This past week the Redlands Track walk group had a 5km hike from Mosman Ferry wharf to the Rocks. For three women, it was their last hike as some return home or part ways to deal with other transitions in life. We had gorgeous weather and it hardly felt like the precipice of winter holiday,...

We took the Mosman ferry to Circular Quay followed by a short train ride.  The Sea Shepherd was parked just in front of the Quay restaurant... Continue Reading →

Housing Log

This past week was full of foul weather followed by my daughter catching a cough. As a result, we haven't had a chance to enjoy the outdoors. Hopefully over the long weekend we will take a trip to the interior or Jervis Bay. Either way it gives me a chance to do a blog post... Continue Reading →

Vivid Sydney 2012

This past weekend was our one year anniversary in Sydney (and my birthday), providing cause for celebration. Since we arrived last year during vivid Sydney I thought it would be appropriate to spend an evening walking around the rocks checking out the light sculptures. We invited two other couples to join us whom have also... Continue Reading →
