With more time on my hands these days, this gives me something to do. I hope you get some pleasure, along with me, in sharing this new stage of my life.

Flooded Waterways in Parramatta.



After 24 hours of rain in Sydney I thought I would check out the local waterways. The last time we had this much rain was in June 2007.



Videos have to be watched on this page,

Did someone forget to turn off the bubbler.

This seat is now being used as a fish trap.

The sign says ' if you see something, say something'.     "WATER"

Row row, row your boat gently up the stream...........

Oh well, it is autumn.

A bit of colour to brighten things up a little.
