13 reasons why I’m blessed

NSW SOUTH COAST – 26 – 28 June 2020
A family trip away wouldn’t ordinarily be blog-worthy – as great as it was, it isn’t something that I’d publish.  However, getting most of the 13 members of my family to go on a bushwalk with me, definitely is blog-worthy.  And I got to take them somewhere that was pretty cool.

How could I have stuffed up so badly?

BLUE MOUNTAINS NP – 20 June 2020
Thankfully I hadn’t but for a while there I thought I had!
