Stuff I see, which you might not.

Inspiring stuff, Sydney

on December 13, 2012

Hello. I’m back. Nice to be with you again. Thanks to those of you who asked OI, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOUR BLOG? I appreciated the nudge and it’s really lovely to know that you noticed my absence. In truth, I’ve been home from my travels for a week and a half now, but I hadn’t really been inspired to get back to blogging. Maybe it was the cold that I picked up during my last days in NYC; maybe it was running around catching up with family, friends and work stuff; maybe it was getting through the shows that TiVo had thoughtfully recorded while I was away; maybe it was just a bit of a slump because the holiday is over & December is bearing down with all its festive fury (don’t get me wrong – I love love love the festive season, but there’s always so much going on).

Whatevs, I’m back now. And I owe the inspiration to Sydney. Yesterday was such a perfectly sunny summer’s day and as I wandered around the harbour, I was struck as I sometimes am by this pretty city, so thought I’d take some snaps and share the sunshine with you here.

No, I really do not miss catching a bus to work.

As far as a view from public transport goes, it's not too bad.

  2. Hey ho Sparks! Soooooooo glad you’re back. Our wee triumvirate has been missing a vital leg!

    Sometimes it is good to remember we live in one of the most gorgeous cities in the world. Cheers for the reminder. 🙂

  3. Welcome back… how did you get that picture of me….. I thought I had managed to get away with dressing up as Cinders by the Harbour!! Sprung!!!

    Sacre Bleu! You’re back – I’ve been checking in every day and the loneliness has been killing me.

    Anyway, firstly, please send Cinders back – I don’t care how good the weather is, there is work to be done.

    Thanks for the photos – as a foreigner in this land I am still blown away by the beauty of this city and it’s nice to know that some of its long term residents are too.

    Good to see food in your blog Cate – it wouldn’t be the same without it 🙂
