I've just realised I've rarely posted about anything we did last year and although it didn't amount to much, I did make the effort to capture a few moments. I will admit to high anxiety level, no mojo to do my usual take the camera everywhere we go and just not coping with the Covid situation, so now you all know why I've been a little hit'n'miss with my blog.
Just before Christmas, we really needed to try and get up to Sydney to catch up with my brother and his carers and maybe see our 2 boys and their offspring, all being well. We left on a Tuesday and were back the next Tuesday just before Christmas, so away for a week. Packing up the caravan, we left early to be in Eden for our first night. We arrived, parked the van and opened the door, only to be greeted by our TV flat on it's face on the floor. It still actually worked, minus part of the back and the mountings. Headed off the next morning and it was a very hot day and we had a few hassles with the car on the journey. As we neared Nowra it got worse and we had to call the RACV who found that it was an intermittent fault, not liking the heat. We made it to Shoalhaven Heads and had no more troubles with said car, but have decided to be brave and replace it, which isn't what we had in mind for this year, but so be it.
Thursday saw us wend our up to Sydney, only to find that we couldn't see my brother as there had been a Covid scare at the centre he attends & he & others were in isolation till they got negative results, which meant our trip up to the harbour city had been for nothing.
On the way back to the van via the coast we stopped at a place called Stanwell Tops where you often see hang gliders and to our amazement one was in the act of taking off and I snapped his progress.
Now for some more photos..........

|Not the best photo, but can you see our visitor in the centre. A gorgeous lizard and there were quite a few about.|

|Another I suppose, sculpture of sorts.|
|Heading down towards the Shoalhaven River I took several photos showing that it is a large river at it's mouth.|
|Then we saw this group of elderly gentlemen playing with their remote controlled sailing boats.|

The Man from Snowy River is a well known poem written by Banjo Patterson about our iconic high country and which all children of my era would recite at school.
