June is over already here and it's winter - short, brisk days and long, frosty nights. Here's some of what we got up to this month:
Chinese Garden of Friendship - a beautiful and tranquil oasis in the midst of bustling Darling Harbour.
Australian version of New England isn't really anywhere near the ocean.
the oldest hospital in Australia, smack in the middle of the CBD and still operational.
Royal Botanic Gardens - they had apparently gone out for the day, but there were plenty of other sights to see. (Note the 'Welcome' sign, for which I have an enduring fondness - mainly because it says 'Please walk on the grass'.)
A Folly for Mrs Macquarie' before the rains came.
Dragon Noodles. I liked it so much I made it twice in two days, substituting plain pasta noodles because I had some sitting in the fridge, and jazzing it up with some chopped celery and leftover steak. Better, cheaper, and quicker than takeout.
That's all from June - bring it on, July!
