December 2011

It is really nice to go out with a wonderful woman like Ree who lives in such a beautiful little home. Its been a couple of years now. Just testing out my wide angle adaptor for the camera. Pretty cool toy. So this is where I spend a lot of my time these days...

Devonport Brass wishing us a Merry Happy

I always love it when I see some community spirit! Here is the local brass band spreading some Christmas Cheer!

Tonight was their last night, but they've done this for a few of them. If anyone has their website I'll post it here.

Ree and Mouse

Dean Saffron came to visit for a weekend to take photos of me as an adult with Cystic Fibrosis living life to the max. He inspired me to take photos. I took Dean to the Alison Track and showed him the lizard, cycled to the Don railway and paddled in the Mersey River. This photo of Ree I took when having coffee... Both these beautiful girls love me!

Frank's Family

Visiting Canberra included meeting up with Frank and his family! Here pictured in front of the Canberra Hyatt Hotel (Frank, Jonah, Esther, Jacqie and Rebecca).

Canberra is always great for cycling and walking, bit of a health kick for me.

Steaming with Enthusiasm

Our beloved Don Railway is run entirely by volunteers. The steam locomotive is not always in operation, and when it is in for repair or maintenance the diesel trains run.

The Tasmanian Government assists the Don railway with Tourist Development Grants, but mostly I believe the project to be self-funded. Check out their web-site:

Ree's dog Mouse got treated with a Hydrodog treatment! Not sure about the orange bits stuck in her ears though... As I was busy doing important stuff like cutting up onions for relish and clearing the gutter pipe, pruning trees and cleaning car,.... Margie was busy in her Hydro trailer.

HongKong Interlude

I was lucky enough to wrangle a week in HongKong. My pilot friend Jim decided to retire from Qantas and I did everything in my power to find tickets to fly with him! In Hong Kong I stayed with my friends Khami and Ned and their family which was fantastic.

Lucky to have Chinese New Year in Hong Kong, as it is the quietest and the least polluted time of the year to be there. It all came together fabulously, and I had an awesome trip!
