Oz

 I've arrived home and done the Christmas thing.
















I don't really have internets access in Port Fairy (the kindle doesn't even work here properly, at least, not at the house).
















But I am having a lovely time in the sun and the warmth. There is swimming and dog walking on the beach and all good things.

















Hope everyone is having a delightful new year.

I arrived home on my birthday. It was rather lovely to be back (and warm)
















 Though I did feel like I'd never left and like I'd never been to all those places.
















 The weather at home is rather lovely and looking good for Christmas.

I've left there, now, but...

These were my last few days in Vancouver.





















 As you can see, the weather was superb. I don't think it rained the last six or seven days I was there.






















 The turkey and the ham each trying to convince you to go for the other.


















 A nest.






















 Christmas.






















A hummingbird.






















 A tyre swing/ horsie.























 A car on the way home from Aphrodite's. I got a piece of Chocolate Banana Cream Pie to eat on the plane on the way home, but it was clear to everybody that it wasn't going to survive the journey there, so I ate it for afternoon tea.

















I caught the sky train to the airport and it was smooth, clean, warm, cheap and quick. Melbourne really needs to lift its game on transport from the main airport to the city. For now, if anyone needs to be picked up from the airport, give me a call.

Anne McCaffery? Oh no.

Her 'Ship Who Sang' is one of my favourite books ever.
