Scenic Highlights Of Brisbane

This could have been a whole series in itself.

I haven’t included last night’s or today’s lifesavers.

Queensland Life Saver

Sitting under this during meetings in Brisbane.

One side of the building’s air conditioning is ten degrees hotter than the other.

We’ve moved our meeting to the cool side.

How do people live here?

The Second Best Thing To See Behind Me In Adelaide

My favorite sight in Adelaide is seeing the toll gate in my rear vision mirror when I go past it on the highway driving home.

That would be too tricky a shot, so I’ll settle for this view of the plane behind me on the tarmac at Adelaide airport instead.

Anyway, see you again next Sunday Adelaide airport.

Camping View

I’ve been staying in Sydney attending a number of meetings of the committees of the Presbyterian Church of Australia this week.

This is as close to camping out as I get.

Here’s the view on a showery Friday evening in Haymarket/Ultimo looking toward Glebe.

The building directly opposite is covered in plants, which seem to be flourishing.

Yes They Have A Shrubbery

A whimsical addition just outside the entrance to the building where our meetings are taking place this week is this shrubbery.
The only thing that it might need would be a second shrubbery, placed beside the first shrubbery, only slightly higher so you get the two-level effect with a little path running down the middle.

Two Destinations

I’m traveling to Sydney for committee meetings of the Presbyterian Church of Australia and am due back Saturday.

Next month I’ll be attending standing committee meetings in Brisbane.

Margaret would have travelled to Brisbane with me and seen her parents for a couple of days.

At fairly late notice we decided she should go to Brisbane today instead so she can spend a longer time with them and them come home with me mid-February.

So, we spent a very early morning drive together to get to Adelaide airport, and now we go our separate ways for a while.
