1. Big Bash cricket
This was our annual outing to a Big Bash game, a tradition we started last year. It was the Sydney Derby, a game between the two Sydney teams, the Thunder and the Sixers. Such a thrilling game - the result wasn't decided until the last ball of the game! It was great fun (even though we sweltered in the oppressively hot weather). Fingers crossed that next year will be cooler. 😀
2. Murder on the Orient Express
Perhaps I'm one of the few people who hasn't read Agatha Christie's classic whodunnit? This probably worked in my favour when we went to see this new movie with Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot, the famous detective. Fabulous scenery and over-the-top casting - so many top actors!
Have you seen it? What did you think? I loved it (and didn't guess the murderer).
3. Day trip to Kiama
On a showery day, we drove south to Kiama to visit the famous blowhole. I hadn't been there since I was a child and we were fortunate to be there on a day when the wind was blowing from the right direction.
Natural phenomena always fascinate people, don't they? There were lots of oohs and aahs when the 'whoosh' noise occurred as the water was forced through the cavity of volcanic rock. If the water spray wasn't high, we just had to wait a couple of minutes until it forced its way through again.
Kiama is a pretty seaside town and well worth a visit. The fish and chips at the wharf seafood cafe were great, too!
Are you having any holiday time? Have you had any fun excursions? I'd love to hear your stories.
