Magic Point.

Thats the name of a little point out in Malabar, however its also prudent to know that magic point is also what Christine Holgate also got – a 1.1mil payout from Auspost, a new job with a direct competitor (Toll) .. i don’t see any pollies talking about this today..

Anyway, in all honesty, Magic Point in Malabar is more interesting, we have been walking around here a bit lately – along with alot of others trying to find those small patches of open space to get out of the house and exercise. Safe to say that all 3 slept well after this one

Sydney Park Life

If you think there is a lot of people in the park now… just wait until they (onesydney) builds its next wannabe trendy trying to be hip apartment blocks right in the park.

This park has been flogged, people from over in the Mascot towers now come to use it, which i do not object to, however City of Sydney need to really think about public green space for the sardine residents.

Where are the proactive visions from which this park was built on now ? this park was built on a wasteland, they (City of Sydney) should have 5 more of these kind of sites in progress by now, rather than cutting up land for more apartment blocks they should be cutting up land for more parks…. oh wait.. parks don’t fed the economic growth numbers….

I found my new calling, when i’m done breaking planes i’m gonna retrain as a dragon… why do dragons sleep in the day time? So they can fight knights!

Sleep in’s – Probably the only good thing about lockdown.. oh wait we do that normally never a bad excuse for a good sleep in and staying in your pj’s for half the day i reckon.

Little E learning from the best

Whale of a time.

I was probably gonna have a mutiny on my hands if I did not deliver any whales this time, we had been to a bunch of places in rain, hail and gales force winds (well that might be slightly over stating it there.. but no point in the truth getting in the way of a good story) and still no whales..

I really like Kurnell, i’m sure in 50 years it will be a really nice rehabilitated place with no sign of the industrial history or oil refinery there – probably overtaken by property developers but still…

I remember doing sunrise near the Cape Bailey lighthouse years ago and walking along the cliffs and being able to hear the whales spouts. I had to actually go over to the edge ofโ€ฆ More

Caution sydney peoples, its gonna be stormy 2 weeks ahead, maybe back off with the vigilantism….

actually here’s a suggestion, don’t discuss covid crap on social media, use social media for actually interesting and fun stuff not bagging the government, your neighbor or the dude with the dog down the street….

First Bike Ride

Little E is certainly gonna be the most stubborn of all refuses help from anyone and must do it all.. by herself

Hell bent on tearing apart the backyard on her (handme down from Unit 2) new bike I thought it best to get some space to practice – she is surprisingly very good, first time at the park with the bike and training wheels. She is probably a bit small for it still, but no point buying another bike just for a few months i figure

Found a cool bubble tea stall selling homemade tea to raise money for stray cats manned by Chaos and crew, they had fleeced many park patrons of their hard earned money with cute smile and animal guilt probably earned more per hour then i do

3 Sisters and the Feral (Federal even) Pass

So, like the rest of the population of Sydney we decided to hit the Blue Mountains for a bush walk, its been 7 or 8 years since I have done this walk and its a good one since you can catch the railway back up the cliff which i figured was a good option for the leg length challenged among us

Little E did about 70% of the 4km walk and walked down every one of the 1000 steps down to federal pass – her quote of the day, stated many times, ‘ I don’t need help’

Whilst there was a ton of people up the top, this thinned out very quick as the steps down the 3 Sister progressed, it was actually quite nice and quiet one we got to the bottom and we only had to wait 20 minutes for the train, which for a long weekend… is pretty good i reckon.

Archibald – Art Gallery.

Its very interesting to look at the winning entries over the last 100 years and very ironic that the winner this year was a portrait of a 100 year old dude who won the same prize back in 1985, pretty cool.

I’m not much on the abstract portraits for which there has been several in recent years, but I did enjoy the few ultra realistic portraits this year and also a cool one of a guy sleeping and the sea behind him.

Probably go without kids if possible you will see more
