Light to Light, Day Three

    The third and final day of the Light to Light Walk at Ben Boyd National Park. This was a shorter (8 kms) easier walk. A nice way to finish the journey.

Light to Light, Day Two

    Our second day walking the Light to Light walk in Ben Boyd National Park. This second day was about 10 kms and was on easier terrain than the first day. That said, probably a little less scenic than the first day too.

Light to Light, Day One

    Macarthur Scouts took a group of teenagers down to Ben Boyd National Park on the weekend to do the Light to Light walk. The first day was 14 kms through lovely undulating terrain. This was the hardest day of the walk, but very rewarding and I think we all had fun.

Roanoke, Virginia

    This is by far the smallest US town I've been to, so I found it quite exciting. I think I need to come back in summer when there are some leaves as well.

A little bit of work around the house

    We're getting a little bit of work around the house done at the moment. Included in this photo set: demolition of a front wall, excavation, marking out walls, footings, crushed rock, drainage work, brick removal, membrane, reinforcing mesh, form work and termite control. Not bad for a week's worth of work.

A failed attempt to visit Muir Woods

    The day after Thanksgiving we mounted an expedition to Muir Woods. The drive from our place is quite interesting, as you cut through San Francisco on the way. When we got there it was really crowded, despite only being about 10:30am. In the end we had to park way down the access road. Because the kids would have been tired out by the mere walk back to the redwoods, we instead went for a wander down one of the other tracks near where the car was parked. It was really nice, although not very redwoody. In fact, the hills in the distance felt quite "Australia" with all their dead grass and eucalyptus trees. I was glad we went, even though we didn't see many redwoods.

Some time in the park, and Andrew lost a front tooth

    I've been quite slack with putting photos online recently. This set is from the kids playing in the park a couple of weekends ago, as well as some shots of Andrew after he lost his first front tooth.

Andrew and Matthew turn 2 and 3

    Wow, these pictures are really old. I'm in the process of going through my photo collection and regenerating all the associated HTML. In the process I found these pictures of Andrew and Matthew's shared birthday party from when they turned 3 and 2 respectively. Heck, its only three years late, so I guess I should put them online.

    Looking back, I think I forgot to put these online because about that time I was run off my feet with LCA 2005. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

James and Jeanette's wedding down the beach

    I've been uber slack about putting pictures of James and Jeanette's wedding online. Given their wedding was ages ago, and the reception last weekend, it seems like I am running out of excuses.

A somewhat random collection of phone pictures

    This is a relatively random collection of photos from the camera on one of my phones. I've been meaning to put them online for a while, so some of them are a little old now...

Kamarura giant Buddha and Hasedera Temple

    Caught the train from Shubiya to Karamura, and went wandering around. There is a giant Buddha statue there, as well as some really nice temples.
