Wanderlust Home and Pet Care
September 28: We have had a quiet week getting things ready for our flight to Brisbane. We have to be there tomorrow, otherwise I would have rented a car and driven 11 hours. Christine was kind enough to take me to “Spotlight” which is like a Hobby Lobby so I could purchase some DMC thread for my on going project of cross stitch Christmas ornaments.
September 20: We have been away from home for one year!
September 19: Our destination today was “The Rocks” to the west of Circular Quay. Gary turned on the GPS and the closest geochache was the “Coat Hanger”. It was located at the beginning of the walkway for the bridge so of course we walked part way across. What great views on a beautiful day. We stopped for beer and pretzel at a German restaurant for refreshments. We then found The Rocks Discovery Museum. After that we located Campbell;s Cove geocashe. We found our way back to the german restaurant for Schweinshaxe (Pork Knuckles). Yummy!
September 13: No ferry today. We take the train to Waverton station. The train travels on the “coat hanger” bridge. It’s exciting to see the city and harbour from two different perspectives: the bridge and west of the city. It’s cloudy today and we get home just as the sprinkle turns into a welcomed rain. I don’t think Sydney has had rain for a couple of months.
September 11: We take our first bus ride to Hurstville train station. The train is an easy way to get to the city, then ferry to Watson’s Wharf. Our purpose is to see the harbour entrance while catching some rays. Lady’s Bay is a nudist beach no ladies but plenty of men sunning themselves. Since we made our lunch we didn’t stop for fish and chips at Doyles.
September 8: Today was clean the aviary day. Because I could stand upright in the aviary, I was elected to scrape the bird poo. Gary refilled the food and water bowls while I was scraping.
September 6: We had Peter and Christine over for dinner. Gary made a strawberry pie that was delicious. Of course everything he makes is delicious.
September 5: Peter & Christine picked us up for a ferry ride in Gunnamatta Bay. It’s the best way for the residents of Bundeena to get to the train station. Then we had a drive around Botany Bay. It was wonderful weather for sightseeing.
September 4: I have found a harbour walk for today’s outing - Cremorne Point. The train into town is No Drama. The ferry is waiting for us to drop us at Mosman Bay. It is a perfect day for walking and a picnic. Back in Sydney we stop for a beer and calamari. We had a great day but my feet are killing me.
September 2: By movie time, Cheetah can be found in Gary’s lap. The relationship is improving.
September 1: Peter is kind enough to help me drop off the car at the airport and he also takes us to our next assignment just blocks away from their house.
Gail and Chris are very nice dog and bird owners. I get the royal tour of the area and we pick up groceries. I make friends easily with the dogs. Cheetah, the six year old female, is afraid of Gary. I hope they can make friends soon.
