Sunday walk

We had a beautiful Sunday, the weather begging to go outside. So we did, but instead of our usual playground or beach, we tried to pick an out-of-the-way spot. We ended up going to one of Sydney’s historic sites with old gun placements, which happens to have beautiful ocean views as well. Some people were walking and running nearby, but everyone was keeping their distance. In the end I’m glad we went, because late on Sunday a new round of social distancing measures went into place, and it looks like this will be our last such outing for the foreseeable future.

Mmm… donuts 🍩


Looking for great donuts in Sydney? Try Short Stop in Barangaroo – the Matcha one is my fave of the bunch 😋

Blue Kingdom

During (way overdue) cleanup of my hard drive, I uncovered a couple of photos from Disneyland from last year. Some turned out really well! I only had one day for sightseeing, so had to decide which park to visit, and landed on Magic Kingdom. Aside from “The Happiest Place on Earth” message being pushed a little too hard at times (or maybe it’s just the Grinch in me), the whole experience was really fun and immersive — 10/10 would go again!

Autumn light

We’re well into autumn now, but it can be hard to tell most days, with sunny, blue skies, and evergreen trees and shrubs. There isn’t much of those gorgeous reds and oranges from the falling leaves. But if you look closely, particularly at sunset, you’ll catch a glimpse of that unmistakably warm, autumn light.

Dee Why

Dee Why you ask? No idea 🙂 Sources point to a note made by an early explorer in his notebook, where he marked the spot as ‘Dy’.

Evening at the stunning Dee Why. It’s a beach a few kilometers north of Manly (one of the two iconic Sydney beaches). Frequented more by locals then tourists, it’s much smaller then Manly, but has some really nice features — two playgrounds for kids, a large grassy field perfect for picnics or games (pictured 😉 ), a bike path, golf course next door, ocean pool, cafes and restaurants, and last but not least amazing views all around.
