Mona Vale sea pool - fabulous. Waves breaking into the pool - about 21 degrees in the water and a lovely warm day, not blazingly hot. Even the Reid sisters went in. Sort of.
Walked from Janey's place down to Kirribilli and Mish and her dad met us at the Royal Yacht Squadron for lunch. Mmmm, always good, sitting outside and right on the harbour. John drove home after lunch and the rest of us walked across the bridge, around Circular Quay, past the Opera House and into the botanic gardens.

Walked into the city and caught a train back to Janey's place. Good day!
Another day we drove up to the central coast and had lunch (a feast) with Tom.

So we saw a few friends and that is always good. We're too far away to drop in for arvo tea, but you are all never far from our thoughts. And, PS to that, it's always good to get visits!
So, back at work. Summer hasn't kicked in here - today we're having gale force winds and rain. Gusts at 140 kph. Not that cold but a tad miserable. It's a long weekend too: Wellington Anniversary day (the province). Glad we're not camping at the beach.
But a couple of days ago we had a summery day so took mum out to lunch, up the coast at Paekakariki.
