On Saturday afternoon, and then again on Sunday after the big party, Roberts and I did some swimming and spearfishing from the rocks at the southern end of Coogee beach.
The photograph below was taken on my moments after the previous previous one. The waves made our entry and exit a little challenging.
My scout went for a slide along the barnacles on Saturday but still backed up for another dip on Sunday with a huge party in between. We didn't catch any of the school of luderick that Roberts located. I felt like I was chasing a flock of ducks around an oval or something - so we bought fish instead. (At "A Fish Called Coogee")
We stopped in at the Rothbury Vineyard in Cowra on our journey home on Sunday. Jan and Les guided our tour through the vineyard that now doubles as sheep-grazing land. You can see that bud-burst is now well-advanced. So, bright sunshine interspersed with a bit of rain will be ideal but please... No frosts!
It is a thankfully short trip from Orange to Bathurst. Jenny and I hung out with Marko and feasted, had a few brews and partook in a relaxing sauna and spa at the recently refurbished Bathurst aquatic centre.
Geometry Wars (for XBox360) had me mesmerized. I would kind of like a 360 now...
