Nostalgic weekend

Almost a year has elapsed since we moved from Sydney to Brisbane. A morning stroll from Central Park took us through UTS (University of Technology Sydney). Gazing at the final touches of the rebirth of Building 2, my mind wandered to memories of the eleven plus years of mostly enjoyable work time spent there.

Our transversal of Darling Harbour allowed a glimpse of the boat show, gently bobbing in Cockle Bay.

Ambling down George Street alongside the ‘soon’ to be commissioned tram tracks, my thoughts turned to reminiscing the good times, hosted in venues that are being replaced.

The two-hour journey ended at Circular Quay. As we approached, the Harbour Bridge and Opera House emerged gracefully, appearing to shake off the shackles of the surrounding structures of transportation and wealth. Claiming their place as man made jewels atop the deep blue sparkling water of Port Jackson.

Rose Bay Resident

Leave city bustle and tours,
Head over to the eastern shores,
To enjoy a rosy afternoon.
If you don’t leave too soon,
This bayside resident you’ll meet;
Eats à la carte; Pelican Pete.

A typical example of a turn of the 20th century Sydney suburban house; single storey, double fronted with a tin roof. What is unusual is its neglected appearance.

The setting sun’s rays catching the ridge tiles on the roof and the watery looking clouds caught my eye.
