Thanks for the haircut Dan!
Hollie assures me it adds 10 years so that's nice
Touchdown Sydney, great coffee and plenty of sites to see before the storms pile in
Shoulda brought a brolly
Out and about with the Morganator aka Normski on the red Ps. Palm Beach and Whale Beach (pronounced Waaal-ay)
Room with a view
North Sydney Pool, it's basically Sedgemoor Splash without the slides and with so much salt Hollie felt physically sick after 2 lengths
Everyone hates this guy, i think because he is responsible for the early crufew in place on most of Sydney's bars and event spaces. MAKE SYDNEY LATE!
Visiting Kat & Zane out in the shire! So cool to hook up with these guys, full of ideas and all together an inspirational couple
Ollie and clan welcomed us to Maroubra, about 15 years since I last saw this mofo, what a legend! We were having so much fun with the whole family (and Michael & Utta) in the sea-pool that this is the only photo...
Blue Mountains, quite rightly on everybody's NSW bucket list. We were expecting a totally washout and then boom! Bring on the sunshne, get the binoculars out and get on the wombat and roo hunt. We welcomed Pickles and Morgan to Canastaville and soaked up the stunning scenery with a pair of legends. But first, break out the Bahn Mi's and let the chili take control.
The Blue Ruin Squat
Roos in the mist
No more beers for you Thomas
New visitors to Canataville are always quite rightly suspicious
Jenolan Caves were known to the local Aboriginal population for many thousands of years as Binoomea, "Dark places" before their modern "discovery" by European settlers brought these incredible limestone marvels to the world's wider attention. By measuring the radioactive potassium isotopes and argon gas levels we now have a pretty good idea the caves were formed around 340 million years ago, thus making the cave network the most ancient discovered caves in the world.
Back with Kat in Sydney for one final crossword showtown. She took us to the incredible art show "Exit" which grahically brings to life the affects of climate change on the global human population. Any chance you get to check it out DO IT! Here is the actual video but it plays so much better on a 270 degree Imax-style video screen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyMbF2uuSIw
10 years later Hollie takes a trip down memory lane without her partner in crime.
