We travelled back from Manly beach yesterday on one of the Sydney Ferries. It was the perfect end to a good few days ‘chooking around’ the harbour. Sydney is more complex than I wanted it to be at first, but this has grown into a comfortable warm feeling of being somewhere where the weather, the food and the company is great.
Today we hopped on a train that took us through the blue mountains to the mining town of Lithgow just beyond. We are waiting there for a bus to take us to running stream where we are to head further into the countryside where a friend of my lady has built an eco house.
Yesterday I experienced my first barbecue at another buddy of hers. I soon sat back and enjoyed the company, the brilliant colours of the plants all around us, the bird song and the sing song conversation. I reckon it will take a while to fully acclimatise but I know it’ll happen because all anyone wants around here is for everyone else to be having a good time. Weh heh heh.
