End of a week

I’m escaping this weekend. I need some time off, some time to myself, some time to study. I booked myself in to a really pretty, and by all accounts well regarded B&B. There will be pictures next week.

Until that time I have some pictures of Summer hanging on.

Everyone seemed to be out with family and friends enjoying the heat.

I really want to do something to help both Japan and New Zealand in this time of need. I know I jumped in and helped Queensland. I am coming up with a plan, which may solidify over the weekend. I have donated, and will continue to give what I can. It’s just so immense …

Not entirely expected!

Such a weekend you never did see! Well, I did, and you might have, if all of your circumstances came together like ours did! You know when you see a stuffed life sized tiger in a white hearse that you’re in for something a little different!

We had an Adventure all planned out, and at the last minute decided that this really may not be the perfect weekend for that particular Adventure. The weather was not cooperating with us.

So we decided to go play tourist instead by purchasing some tickets to the Sydney Aquarium with some left over holiday money we had.

We got there about lunch time, and there were queues, and we were dispirited, so we decided to find food, re-group, and come up with a new plan. We re-grouped here;

Such a steak you never did eat before! So tender, so juicy, so LARGE!

Three hours later, the queues to get into the Aquarium had mysteriously vanished, so we thought we’d try our luck!

We saw Dory

Now don’t forget the Raffle to raise money for the QLD flood relief is still going but ends next Monday, 24th, at 9am. If you have yet to enter Just head to this post and follow the directions. The clean up efforts are just monumental, and every little bit helps.
