Summer in Sydney is glorious. There are coastal walks, like the Spit Bridge to Manly, with little quiet beaches. If the sun gets to much you can duck off the track and take a swim with next to no one.

Many a sunrise and sunset in the locality of Mudgee were appreciated on the drive to and from work this June. The month ended with a trip to the Mudgee monumental cemetery. All this gadding about was sustained by the delicious food to be had at Alby and Esther’s, Isabella’s (the Genovese and ravioli are lipsmackingly good) and Elton’s. Many thanks Mudgee for the great trip.

It’s the beginning of a new adventure and a new archaeological excavation. This trip is taking me to a rockshelter in the Central Tablelands of NSW. Our trip through the Blue Mountains and into the Central Tablelands just happened to be a snow day. As a Sydneysider, it’s pretty novel to find snow only two hours away.

Perhaps we can use our nation’s collective flag stocks as shrouds for people who have died from domestic violence or who have died because of a lack of funding to essential services.

Last Mothers Day, the clan explored Joadja. This year we hitched the horses to the cart and rode up Bells Line of Road to Mount Wilson. We caught the last of the autumn colours, picnicked in the park, visited a number of the open gardens and ducked around the numerous lovers taking photos kissing beneath the maples.
