Back to work

You can see why I'm happy to travel so far to work. A nice quiet, air conditioned, soothing environment...not!

Over the fence

This is the view over our side fence.  Many houses in  Wentworth Falls are 80 to 90 years old, having been built soon after the first world war. They are predominantly weatherboard walls with tin (corrugated iron) roofs. Unfortunately ugly red brick and tile houses started to replace the old places in around the 60's. The weatherboard houses are now much sought after, especially by retiring or "tree changing" Sydneysiders.

Morning Ralph.

No, this is not the Blue Mountains, it's where I work at a brewery in Lidcombe which is about 15 minutes from the centre of Sydney. It's an hours drive for me each way. I'm on night shift this week (10pm-6am) so I had a bit of a wander during my breaks to get a shot or 2.

Wentworth Falls Shops

Every day we take our 13 year old, deaf and blind Jack Russel, Sally for a walk around the shops. Despite her age and ailments she is physically fit and still enjoys a good sniff. Like any older lady she has trouble sleeping if she doesn't get her exercise. The shop you can see is Rotate Interiors which deals in antique/second hand furniture.

Where better to start than the front gate?
