We’re back in Australia, and this photo of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. During that trip, I would go under the bridge at least 3 times – once by foot, twice by boat and possibly once by car. The one thing that I didn’t get to do was to actually cross to the North side by bridge; I did that twice by boat – once to Taronga Zoo and once to Manly Beach.
You’ll also notice the Pacific Pearl in the foreground. There’s a good reason that the Overseas Passenger Terminal is located in Circular Quay 🙂
This line that Snoskred wrote caught my eye…because I fit into both categories –
Do I read the posts? Yep.
Do I have folders on my computer with digital photos…um maybe?
This just covers from December 2009-July 2010. Never mind the mind-bogglingly insanely large number of photos that I have in my Mac’s Photo Library, plus the photos that I have laying around on CDs and DVDs going back to 2003 when I got my first digital camera, a Sony Powershot.
Anyway, today’s photo doesn’t come from the selection of folders above, but it is from the Canon camera on November 4, 2011. The location was somewhere near Mayfield NSW while Snoskred, her Other Half, and myself were heading to Canberra for the weekend while I was visiting them.
At the beginning of this particular routing to Canberra, there is a sign advising that there are dirt roads. The problem is that, of course, the quality of the road can be quite varying and the traffic quite low. I do remember quite a fair number of bumps along the way, and even having to ford a stream or two.
We also had to stop for this –
Which I believe is actually the first wild kangaroo that I saw on my trip. It was really no different to coming across deer while driving around here though as a good reinforcement to pay attention to the road and keep a keen eye out for any beady eyes you may spot along the way. 🙂
I haven’t any clue what this bird is, but it was one of the many birds that I saw at Taronga Zoo, 2011.
Going through some of my old photos, I found this picture of a sign that I took outside of Harrison’s Pharmacy in Manly, NSW.
Some things have changed in the nearly 4 years since taking this photo…
- The pharmacy is now known as The Corso Pharmacy
- Mr. Abbott has had a few job titles in that time…
I think I took the picture because it was funny to see a plaque saying that a common pharmacy was opened by a government official…

One of my favourite guilty pleasures is to enjoy the occasional Tim Tam. In fact, I’ve had quite a few different flavours of them, but if you wanted to get them, you had to either know someone in Australia who would send them to you 😉 or travel to World Market and buy them yourself.
Now, you have a new option 🙂 –
I spotted these at Walmart recently. In the past, they were made by Pepperidge Farm for sale in the USA, but they didn’t last long. These ones? They’re the proper ones – sold as Arnott’s Tim Tams in the stores!
And they’re only $2.98 at the Wal-Mart! 🙂 If you are in the ‘States and have not tried them out, buy a packet and let me know what you think of them 🙂
