The Old Wolf Express - Down Under 7

Happy Australia Day!

Yesterday was laid back and enjoyable - while Steam Wolf worked on his Land Rover, I took the Wolfmobile into Newcastle, found a commemorative silver coin that my son wanted, ate a pizza roll at a shopping center, explored Christ Church cathedral overlooking the harbor, and generally enjoyed myself on the dénouement of my Australian sojourn.

In the evening Steam Wolf escorted me to a former military club/casino where we feasted on barramundi, chips (i.e. fries) and salad. Afterwards we sat on the deck chatting for about an hour while lightning raged all above us and around us, eliciting less-than-printable comments from this easily-startled old wolf. But what a light show!

After more sharing of internet movies and other goodies, we retired. It was substantially cooler thanks to the rain.

This morning Steam Wolf took me to the train station, where I (most reluctantly - I hate to leave this most pleasant base camp!) caught the proper trains to Artarmon, and now look forward to a day exploring Sydney with the Foxaroo.

More later.

I couldn't help but laugh when the carefully chosen words of stress were completely forgotten and something more traditional used in their place when the branch lightning made purple and white daylight of the night sky directly above us :-D

if you don't get to post beforehand, have a relaxing trip home!

Drat! I would have enjoyed doing that. Haven't been there since I was in junior high. From memory it's very beautiful inside the cathedral too, ornate and exquisitely decorated.

As a child I always enjoyed playing with the small water display (I can't really call it a "fountain" or "waterfall" since it's not really either). I'd block the three outlets and watch the water pour out the manhole at the top. XD I don't even know if that is still running these days - with vandalism and the water shortages they've probably turned it off?
