Living on the river, I get to see it throughout all her different moods. This day she was peeping through the mist. The jetty in the distance is at the pub featured yesterday. Quite a few people sail to the pub especially on weekends.

The Local Pub

Yesterday I showed you Bert on the way to the pub in his yacht. Well, here is the pub. It's a great little tavern which has quite a bit of history behind it. Not a bad spot for a meal, overlooking the river, lots of tourists come here on the weekend.

Crab Apples

Crab apples are great to use for extra pectin in jam making so I believe.

As much as this has been difficult for me to do today due to not being able to walk independently through the pain of arthritis, I always try to be optimisitic.

Greetings From Tasmania

In the last week in Sheffield in Tasmania, they have been holding a Mural Fest, where artists come from all over to compete for the title of the best mural in town.  This is a small part of the winning mural. Its like a post card.

Iconic Luna Park

Luna Park in Melbourne brings back memories from when I was a teenager and lived there after leaving Tasmania with all my worldly possessions in a cardboard box and $60 to my name. It was 1970 and I was 16 and jobs were easy to come by. I picked one up the day after I arrived working in a shoe shop. Many weekends were spent here with my friends.

Luna Park - Sydney. I have cruised passed here many times but never gone in. Maybe I should schedule a visit before I fall off my perch.

Welcome to those visiting from Rhonda's Down to Earth blog

Autumn Afternoon

As a teacher who has been on Easter break, today my head started thinking about school again and that we are going to explore Autumn. I decided to collect a few leaves for a display and just threw them down on my coffee table then as the sun shone on them I could see the shadows forming and playing with my eyes. That's when I had to get my camera out.
