  3. Nice blog and interesting photographs. Must be a nice view from the bench. All you have full sun, it appeals to me. Here today to snow, it's unusual at this time. Greetings from Peter.

  4. Goregeous looking day, Jim. That first promentory is Mrs Macquarie's Chair, and the second with the little red building, I guess is Garden Island.

    It is true then what they say: on a clear day you can see forever.

  21. Your photos make me homesick! Lived in Sydney (Beecroft) for 3 months a long time ago, and the scenery everywhere is spectacular.
