Greetings from DownTown Albury

Yes we are on holidays...for the last weekend of the school hols. For two people who never go anywhere this is actually our second stay in a hotel/motel this month as we spent a weekend in CityClub two weeks ago.

We're actually visiting a friend up here but thought we'd make a weekend of it.
It's very hot and I miss my proper aircon but the little unit here will do. There is a pool but I think I'd burn to a crisp in the sunlight right now. There's a cute Beagle here called Bolly who loves to eat so Max would have been happy. Aaron's not overly impressed with my choice of hotel but hey at least I managed to find something when booking the day before a long weekend.

We found a great pub last night (The Bended Elbow) and they serve Bulmers so we're going back again tonight for dinner and a few pints. Think we'll get a movie in as well and hopefully see some fireworks for Australia Day.

Speaking of which: Happy Australia Day everyone!Amazing display of Xanthorrhoea on road side stop...

Great view of the Murrindi Valley below...

I finally got around to joining Diggers Club so I can have a better idea of what I'm doing in the garden and so I know I'm contributing to bio-diversity and the preservation of heritage plants. It was lovely wandering around the gardens at Heronswood and enjoying a picnic on the lawn.
Seeing as we were going all the way to Dromana we decided to go to the beach as well. Little did I know that Sarah had never swum in the sea before so it was quite an exciting day for her. (Since then we have spent many days at the beach in various conditions and I have seen an amazing improvement in her swimming ability. I of course love swimming in the sea so it's been a great time for me.) While at Dromana mum just kept an eye on things for us as she's not so keen on swimming anymore. Took some silly pics with the phone so thought I'd share them with you.
