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.

Tulip Time in Bowral.





Thought we better pay a visit to Bowral to see the tulips before the temperature got too hot and ruined the flowers. On the way we went up to the Mount Gibraltar Lookouts for good views of Bowral and Mittagong. Then, coming home we had a look at the tulips in the Winifred West Park at Mittagong.

Last stop was in Mittagong.

Poplars In The Raw.

The building known as Sunshine Lodge was built in 1927 as a large boarding school
for the nuns and girls at St Joseph's Catholic School.   The convent closed in 1972
and  was taken over in the late 1970s for the purposes of housing for people with
a mental disability.                                                                                                  
  The building was destroyed by fire April 2013.
