Evening Commute

Full day of meetings concluded.

Train trip and then a shortish drive, and then sleep.

Longer drive to visit family tomorrow.

Then dinner with friends.

City Of Ugg

I’ve also noticed that every third shop in the Sydney cbd sells UGG boots. or so it seems.

Do they really have that much demand for ugg boots?

Base Of Operations

Checked into our accommodation in Sydney.

Heading from the city to Hurstville for breakfast tomorrow. Probably after my morning walk.

We’re over the road from the ABC headquarters.

A Whyalla Institution
