Exploring Ball’s Head

Walking through Ball’s Head Reserve today we met a lovely couple. They were watching the rainbow lorikeets sipping the nectar from the banksia flowers or more commonly know as bottle brush trees. So many friends back home have asked about the size of the giant spiders here so we brought along a tape measure in case we came across any… lol 

The couple mentioned that the birds eat the spiders - can you imagine? Yuk!

Here’s a link to view more of the park and it’s history. We are so lucky to live just down the street, walking-distance to this gem of a park.


Exploring Beyond Sydney

Today I ventured outside of Sydney for a little shopping at Target & Kmart. Took a new train line and explored Red Fern & Glebe. Interesting suburbs of Sydney. Later that day I submitted an application to join the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). I await their approval after I submitted 20 images for the committee to review.

Yoga + TV

Yesterday I attended a great 90 minute yoga session at LifeSource yoga studio. What a great find in North Sydney and in walking distance, a double workout!


Put me in a good frame of mind the rest of the day. Worked on photos, cleaned the bathroom, then I set up our TV antenna so now we have a working TV - YAY!
And it’s free local so no cable bill. The first show I found was the original Sherlock Holmes, loved it! Another awesome find…


Glad to have had much to do as Jim was back home in CT and his first visit since February. He was staying in Newton, MA where he was teaching but drove down to CT over the weekends to pack up a few more things. In CT he stayed with our good friends Marcia & Jim at their beach house in East Lyme. So much to do there, meeting with the tenants, property manager, etc.

Before he left for CT, we enjoyed dinner on Darling Harbor, one of many pretty spots in and around Sydney.
