We had vowed to rise early and get to the falls as they opened. Everyone we talked to had told us that was the best thing to do to beat the crowds and see the falls in all their glory.

But somehow my partner had persuaded me that it would be MUCH better to fly the forty-five… Continue reading Heading For The Skies…Reluctantly!
Swansea is situated just south of Newcastle, at the mouth of Lake Macquarie….which is a bloody big lake! We have stayed in Swansea numerous times now and whilst it’s fair to say that it is quite quiet, I’ve always enjoyed our time there.

I visited Penzance in Cornwall, UK, with a friend for a gloriously fun and sunny weekend last year. It was such a brilliant weekend and we were totally blessed with weather. There is a lido there called the Jubliee Pool. It had fallen into disrepair but had been restored to its former glory and was… Continue reading Jubilee Pool, Penzance
