Hunter Valley

As I touched on my previous post, I made catch up with my friend who visited me in Sydney for the first time in ten years and it’s been six years from our last catch ups.

We talked a lot about us what’s happened after our last catch-ups, and I found that she had had very difficult time to get rid of and had suffered from anxiety and depressions.  She was getting back and she decided to make a visit me and Sydney again as she has lots of good travel memory in here.  I was so glad that she chose here for her refreshment with a touch of rehabilitation.

The photographs below were taken in Hunter Valley winery I went with her.  August is downtime at vineyards, but it’s also a kind of ‘fruit’ time because new products of the year or new batch are being bottled with new labels around this period.  We went to five cellars which included her favorite cellars.  It was great day and we filed another good story in our memory.

Boo!

The first bloom of the year.  This orchid soon will have got its second year at my place.  It carried along with a friend of mine last year who runs restaurant at a region of 3.5 hours away from Sydney and visited me for my birthday.  Glad it seems be happy to be at my place.

The world of Tricolor

I snapped the head part of Hornby’s Lighthouse at South Head, Sydney, when I took a walk around Watson’s Bay and Camp Cove with the guest I had from Chicago.  I did not bring my DSLR but my old iPhone6 still did a fair work.

It was nice, clear day.  I think the photo caught well about how sparkle the lighthouse body was in white and red stripe with in bright blue background.

Camp Cove emerald

So I had got a guest from Chicago for last five days.  She headed back to Chicago this morning.

We have been long standing friend which has been over twenty years, and she visited me in Sydney last time ten years ago.

Here is a snapshot I took when we went to Watson’s Bay.   Water at Camp Cove Beach was breathtaking.

Thank you for stopping by.
