2011 Happenings - the main happenings this year involved the new boat - see Yachtshots, and a little travel
Tangalooma Island Wild Dolpin Resort
Nice place to visit for a couple of days
Resort could use a facelift - especially the food area. Menu could use a facelift too. Food is a little pricey. Dolphin feeding is OK, but there were heaps of people doing it - so it was a bit rushed, and regimented.
nice and warm when the
flames were on
The Opera House is always a
great canvas for lighting
Wonder if Utson ever imagined this
Hard to photograph moving images
Amazing effects though
Video would've been better
This was fabulous
The building came to life
melted, breathed, aged and collapsed
Great use of the architecture
to change the look of the building
MCA - light grafitti
Interactive modern art
Sydney Light and Music Festival
We braved the cold to go and look at all the pretty lights
My favourite was Customs House - amazing effects
Botany Bay National Park 2011
Interesting sandstone formations
rockpools are always intriguing
A seal was hanging around "waving"
Kurnell - Botany Bay National Park
despite the oil refinery and desalination plant, there is still a rather lovely area of bush on the headland, one of those hidden gems in Sydney, just don't go when there is a football match on as the traffic is appalling!
We went to see the Whale watch Deck but couldn't get near it
everyone else had the same idea! So we went to one of the picnic areas instead.
We did see whale "blows" but too far out to sea to see without serious binoculars!
Our Back Yard 2011
Press play to watch the possum video
When possums are attacked
Keep your eyes on the bottom of the tree - the crows / ravens attack from the right.
The possum was higher up the tree, but by the time I got my camera, it had dropped down below the fence. A longer zoom would have helped as well!
I don't know what had provoked this attack.
One crow / raven kept pulling the possum's tail and one attacked its head. I felt very sorry for the possum! It still ended up climbing the tree after the crows had gone.
