Autumn in Redfern

During autumn one of my favourite streets to drive down is inner city Chalmers St in Redfern. Here it is on Sunday morning with not much traffic.

Coffee, Surry Hills

On Sundays I like to go to a Pilates class in Darlinghurst, and then enjoy a large latte at Toast cafe, on the corner of Reservoir and Mary Sts, Surry Hills.

Wet and windy

Yesterday afternoon the weather turned wild and woolly, and umbrellas didn't last too long!

My boyfriend

Thought it was about time to introduce you all to my new boyfriend, but I see he has done so himself. And in lots of places arounf the world, so I understand!

Red car club

As I was driving along the Princes Highway at Arncliffe last weekend, I saw this line of red cars, looking as if they were off to a red car convention somewhere.

Chasing cars

Guide dogs....everyone loves guide dogs. I chuckled when I saw this ad on the back of a taxi.

Yummy Mummies

Bronte is an expensive suburb to buy in to. A modest house will cost a million dollars. Nevertheless, there are lots of young families in the area - often well-paid professional couples. The women in these partnerships are often referred to, rather disparigingly, as "Yummy Mummies" - young, sexually attractive, hip, and stylish. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale are supposedly archetypal yummies. The opposite of a yummy mummy is a slummy mummy.

Whether they're yummy or not, there's certainly a lot of Mummys around Bronte, as this line of strollers attests.

(This is an older photo that has been in 'the vault' since a warmer time of the year; you may have noticed a bit of a fall-off in the blog lately - due to a very busy time at work, mostly, getting home exhausted and not having as much time to attend to bloggy matters! Apologies!)

Riding one of these looks like a whole heap of fun; not sure what they are - they look like a type of skimboard. If anyone knows the real name I'd love to know.

Surf beach, Palmie

The beach, lighthouse and headland at Palm Beach would be familiar to anyone who watches TV soapie Home and Away - it's where it is filmed.

Heading home

On the other side of the narrow sand spit from Pittwater is the surf beach (Palm Beach). This fellow emerged over the dune with his board, and then walked out to his tinny (that's an aluminium boat) to head home across Pittwater somewhere.

Hedging your bets

A girl is often not quite sure what to wear.
So on a beautiful autumn day, when the temperature starts off around 14 degrees and reaches a high of 26.5, you need to be prepared - in a winter coat and scarf . . .bare legs, and thongs on your feet!
