From Andrew, Paul and their friend Charlie. This is where we spent it - at Taronga beach.

This is the epitomy of all that is good about Sydney in summer. Sitting on a remote beach but with great views of the city, along comes a boat selling good coffee and ice cream. He rings his bell and edges between the big boats, selling his coffee. But he also serves landlubbers like us!

Went out with Andrew and Paul this Saturday (the 22nd) to celebrate [forget??!!] my 42nd birthday. Ended up down at the Observatory and then walked down to the Rocks where they "treated" me to a traditional English lunch of Cornish pastie and chips in some outdoor cafe. Very nice it was too. And they bought me some Maltesers.
The girls looking at Lara's wedding photos in Italy. Lara (back to camera) is a new reporter who has worked in Darwin and for the BBC. Also pictured here are Kate W0ods (clinical reporter) and Dr Linda Calabres1 (medical editor and soon to be deputy editor), as well as Edwina L1ght, politcal news editor - who has just given up smoking.

Once you get over the Blue Mountains you enter the rolling hills of the central west of NSW. This is a view of the road heading out towards our campsite from the little country town of Rylestone (there's another Rylestone in the Yorkshire Dales).
A lonely level crossing on a quiet section of track, presumably heading out towards the wine growing area of Mudgee.

It sounds like an awful dump, but as you can see it is a really cool place - reminded me of Burton Constable! Canoeing, swimming, nice scenery (but no stately home).
It's about 200 miles west of Sydney, right over the Blue Mountains and set in the farming country beyond. Felt like we were miles from anywhere - because we were.
