CDR Virtual Vacations presents On this day 2020: A day in 3 parts...

Sydney’s public transport system includes the ferries, so we took one from Circular Quay to Double Tree Bay in the morning. We had a good view of the city and Luna Park the vintage theme park. When JoesDad worked in Sydney his apartment was just behind Luna Park.

Then we did a long walk to Centennial Park amd a spot of bird and bat watching. There are tens of thousands of Flying Fox fruit bats roosting in the trees and they’re very noisy!

The first bird we saw was, appropriately, a Laughing Kookaburra.

This is my nephew on QM2 when he was 3rd or maybe even 2nd engineer.
He was on the QM2 between Southampton and Australia while he was covering for a ship mate.
I think he looks very dashing, but then I suppose I am biased!

Well yes, I think he looks like a hard working and dashing guy... Is he the one that got married lately. Is so, my best to them.🤗

For those who guessed, many were close. Yes, a hanger, but a tool hanger for in the wood shop. Yes, i could have just banged a few nails or screws into the wall, but what fun or look is that, especially in a wood working shop?

So.......as a reminder, a look back on the creation of a customized tool hanger.

I played in the sun yesterday with friends so today I worked in the yard all day.. it was time to get all the outside water faucets back on and the sprinklers going again. I also made a big dent in my chicken pens for the new babies that are coming. I’m pretty excited!

Good morning, all.
It's still quite chilly here but bright and sunny.
Have to make the most of it - rain is on the horizon for the rest of the week.
Lola is waiting for his breakfast so I'd better go and see to his lordship.
Hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning right back at ya! 😃
I just wanted to chime in and say...
Yesterday I knocked on my torts’ door and said “House keeping!” 🎶
( I even smiled as I said it..😠)
.....rushed her out of her night box and proceeded to clean it.🤢
When the night time fell upon us
I rushed her back to her night box forgetting to feed her.! 😱
At midnight I remembered and ran out to her... only to knock at the door whispering,
“Room service?” ...
Since when did Covid change my job to
My torts maid????? Or lackie??
I feel like the kings peasant who has to try the food first to see if it’s been poisoned !!
😤— God I miss my boss. At least I can tell him where to go if he asks for a coffee! 😃

As interesting as what’s on display is the native wildlife that is roaming free at Taronga. Water Dragons are everywhere just basking on paths, rocks or swimming in any available water.

Brush turkeys are everywhere too.

They're all great but I especially love the sleeping koala slouching in his seat.:<3:

Congratulations on an excellent tv appearance Linda, you looked and sounded very professional.👏👏👏
Is Annette the lady who died suddenly last year?

Dogs have owners, cats and torts have slaves!!

I had to drag a grumpy Lola out for a nice long soak today; he kept giving me the evil eye all the time he was in there. Then I blocked his door so he had to bask and stretch his legs for a while which he also wasn't happy about.
He did peep out at the garden but made no attempt to venture into it.
Must be like us dipping a toe in the cold sea and thinking, 'There's no way I'm going any further!'
He's back in his cosy hide now so he'll be much happier.

Thank you Lyn. Yes, Annette is the lady who died suddenly. It was nice to see her again 😊
