We've had a rather wonderful January so far:

1. Our first attempt at kayaking in Lake Burley Griffin (Thank you Judy and Jurgen and Maggie the wonder dog). We're hoping we can do this again; it's absolutely beautiful out in the lake, despite our lack of skills in paddling straight and, in Rob's case, keeping upright (he fell completely overboard at one stage!).

2. A wonderful New Year's Eve meal starting with Aperol spritzers and then fresh Merimbula lobster served with a superb Grosset Reisling - shared with friends outdoors (a perfect, balmy evening it was too), before catching a late movie - the Canberra premiere of "Lion" starring Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman. 

3. A happy week in Sydney with lots of relaxation, coast walks, using the excuse of a rainy day to revisit old haunts ....... well as discovering new ones like the Pool Cafe on Marine Parade Maroubra, Tim Ho Wan's at Chatswood and the rather glorious Roseville Station Bar (where we shared another great night with Sydney friends last night).

4. A perfect Sydney day today after 3 days of intermittent showers. We walked from Randwick Public School (where the advertised Farmer's Market was a no show) through the pretty suburban streets of Bronte and Tamarama all the way to Bondi Beach.

which looked its spectacular best today.....

Love January, love Sydney!
