Ada loves the beach. Hates swimming or at least any time her paws leave solid ground. Loves paddling and trying to chase those pesky fish. Chasing a ball on the beach and burying it are also fun things to do. Here is a few photos from locations around Woodgate Beach including some where we tried … Continue reading Simply K9 Joy
Caught the sunrise and shared it with about a dozen people and dogs this morning. S and Ada decided to stay in bed. It really was not that cold.
This week is a little sad as my daily dose of a favourite web comic has come to an end. The author, Howard Taylor, has been providing a three panel humourous scifi comic each day for a little over twenty years and last week was the last post for these characters. Although he does say … Continue reading My daily dose of humour and accidental wisdom
This looks like one of those pictures that deserve a caption. Any suggestions?
S and I go for walks regularly and on occasion go to places that are not well known. There are lots of historical sites locally and most of them are maintained by the local civic authority. We are lucky as it provides a chance to apply "social distancing" in the outdoors and get some fresh … Continue reading Munro Tramway – History Walk
Travelling in Australia gives us many opportunities to see interesting things and places. Fingal Head Causeway is one such place and somewhere that S wanted to visit through her compulsive researching. The causeway is an unusual geologic formation that deserves a personal visit, pictures while nice, do not do it justice. The headland itself is … Continue reading Fingal Head

Oyama not only does great food but provides an excellent experience as well. The head chef was entertaining and the staff were very helpful. We had two people celebrating … Continue reading Oyama Teppanyaki Restaurant
Since S and I have had our dog, Ada, we get to walk a lot more. We did this walk in Laurel Bank Park on a day that was cloudy and promising rain. We have had a week of showers and the parks and gardens of Toowoomba are responding to this long overdue largess. Every … Continue reading Same Park, Different View
It is amazing what a little bit of rain can do to a parched landscape. Green appears overnight and grass grows from dirt that has been scuffed and churned into dust. It gives me hope that the burnt areas of Australia can recover. We still have lost a lot in people, buildings, farm animals and … Continue reading Lake Annand Park and East Creek Park
S and B gave me cool presents for Christmas. It has become tradition that they give me a present that will require puting together and more importantly, time to build. This year they found a wooden Steampunk Airship wind-up model and a knockoff Meccano Flying Scotsman train. The train I started building on Christmas day … Continue reading Christmas Present building
