Fires in the Port Hills

February 14, 2017

For the last two days there have been fires raging in the port hills – with flames visible from the city. From up the top of the Gondola I could see the aerial fire-fighting efforts of the incredible pilots flying the planes and the helicopters dousing the flames. They are such brave people who tirelessly serve others in a dangerous situation. Tragically, one of the helicopters crashed and the pilot did not survive. Thinking of the family today who have lost their loved one. Such a terrible loss.

Thank you to all of the amazing fire fighters who are working so hard to protect everyone – they are true heros.

Mona Vale Homestead

Mona Vale homestead re-opened recently after a restoration – and it’s looking fantastic. I took the opportunity to meet some friends there for lunch and then a short walk around the rose garden.

Feeding time at the zoo

January 30, 2017

If we are not fast enough in bringing out the Magpie food, they get a little impatient. They start singing at us, or the baby Magpie in the picture has become rather brave and has decided he’ll just come inside and help himself! The door was closed today, so he was thwarted in his attempts to break and enter. He’s no slouch – I’ve found him going through the bowl containing our house keys, so that’s had to be moved! We certainly are not encouraging him inside, but it’s still pretty entertaining when he’s caught.
