Swimmers ask where is Heather? Home watching TV!

 

Where is Heather? Any absentee note? We can’t even ask Kath where is Heather as Kath is off in her own little world enjoying herself on holidays before retirement.

Heather writes: “Thanks for all the news, Happy birthday Elise, looked like a fun night. Great photos of the ocean, I am missing the ocean and walking. I have been quiet and laid up for a couple of weeks. I’ve had surgery on both feet, one foot looks like it will be an easy recovery but the bunion & tendon surgery on the other foot has been more difficult. Very light weight bearing with crutches and feet up most of the time. Paul has been great and my brother and his wife have been visiting, so good timing! Friends have called round with coffee and books and a laugh.

Lots of binging on Netflix and google Play. Off to Sydney on Thursday to have it all uncovered and see what they say!”  XXX Heather

Holiday before retirement, exploring the Warrumbungle mountains & onwards to Red Rock

 

Kath provides an update: “We have spent three days exploring this amazing ancient bit of landscape, on many walking trails through the beautiful Warrumbungles”. The name ‘Warrumbungle’ is believed to mean ‘crooked mountains’. This is an appropriate name describing the distinctive jagged skyline of the Warrumbungles, with its domes and spires separated by forested ridges and deep gorges and surrounded by plains and tablelands. The Breadknife and Grand High Tops walk is the jewel in the glistening crown and is must do for bush walkers who love a challenge with their scenery. The track follows Spirey Creek before climbing steeply to give close encounters with iconic formations such as Belougery Spire, Bress Peak and Crater Bluff.

As a matter of interest, the Breadknife is a volcanic dyke approximately 90 metres high and 4 m wide, thus the name. It is a 12.9 Km walk.

Swimmers share in this memorable occasion: Their young adult children graduating – Ulladulla High School 2020

 

Moni, John and Tracy, Robbie and Simone, Jo and Ian were among the many parents at the Civic Centre / Ulladulla Harbour to witness the joy and jubilation being shared among all the 2020 Ulladulla High School graduates. The youngsters were dressed to the hilt in some amazing eye catching outfits. They looked stunning as they lined up either in groups or with parents for some beautiful photo shoots using the harbour as a background. Whilst it was an overcast afternoon, we were still able to get some lovely photos.

Dolphins at North Mollymook

However, apparently someone forgot to tell Issi, nonetheless all the swimmers were back at south Molly the following day albeit a little confused on where to swim due to the strong northerly current prevailing.
