A well-earnt reputation for hedonism

You can see how these two images dovetail. I am still on the bush track running along the ridge beside Little Sirius Cove, on my way (eventually) to the Athol Street Ferry Wharf at the 'bottom' of the zoo. Yes, the day was very grey and hazy. A predicted fierce hail storm never eventuated. By the time I got home, the cloud had parted and blue reigned supreme. Drats!

Gosh when I see that skyline Julie, it makes me realise how small Perth is, roughly by half I'd say. I love seeing the bridge in pictures of Sydney, to me it's so much more appealing than the opera house..I can't wait to see it again next week.

It gives the pictures a soft feeling and we discover this nice part of Sydney harbor.

Both are beautiful photos, Julie, although not your usual portrait style — portrait of the city, perhaps.
But were you actually disappointed there was no hail storm?
Sometimes I am. I keep hearing about horrible hail in the city near our little town, and hailstones as big as golf balls, but I've never seen them bigger than a hazelnut.
Not that I'm ever wishing for the destruction caused by large hailstones: cars battered, roofs ruined, pets terrified or even injured... okay, I'll stop wanting to see large hailstones.

Sounds like a wonderful walk Julie and you have captured some interesting vignettes along the way - I like them both.

David Williamson didn't call it the Emerald City for nothing!

The weather is so annoying at the moment. We camped in Sydney last week in the hope of getting warm and it was all grey skies and light rain. They say it is going to be warmer this week .. I do hope so.

Mind you the habour looks good even in grey weather.
