We arrived home early this morning after an overnight flight.  This afternoon, after shopping for some essential groceries, we ate a light lunch on the front porch.  Both us were feeling fuzzy, not having slept much on the night flight. After lunch Kathy elected to...

Country Roads

Country Roads

I particularly like driving on country roads.  On long road trips to the south we invariably take the inland route and avoid the coastal Route 1 highway.  For a trip of over 2,000 kilometres, each way, that adds about 100 kilometres to the trip.  However, there is a...

As I have been working through the structure of aussiehunter I came across this article on the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, which was published in the SSAA as The Art of Hunting. There is a wealth of artwork inspired by hunting.  Nowhere is this more evident...

New Year Fireworks Sydney

The New Year's fireworks in Sydney draw a massive crowd.  An official estimate of the number of spectators at this year's event was around the 1.6 million mark. We were fortunate to visit relations who have an apartment in Lavender Bay with a fabulous view to the...

The Big Smoke

Sydney is a typical big city and very different to our serene country location in far northern Queensland (The Deep North as some call it).  Nevertheless we enjoy a holiday in the big smoke every now and then. Over thirty years ago, before we had kids, Kathy and I...

Western Road Trip

Yesterday, just a bit before sunset, we pulled into our driveway.  That ended a three week road trip which saw us cover over 5,000 kilometres.  Most of that distance was on western Queensland country roads.  The chance for a gathering of our family sparked the...

Home Again

Well, our six week trip through Europe is over and we landed back home yesterday.  It was a good trip and I enjoyed it much more than I, or my wife, thought I would. By the same token, it is great to be home again.  That is especially so as two of the kids were able...
