BC: 'Twas a good feed and good fun. After dinner we all had to bring/perform/show something to do with our culture - so I read The Man From Snowy River. | A shot of me on the boat. | Like, really big. For more information on the Ring of Brodgar hit wikipedia or go to www.orkneyjar.com/history/brodgar/. It's fascinating. | Hugs and greetings.
FC: The Adventures of David
1: We thought we should at least have some pics with us in them. | Me and Cathy with Ian Diepenhorst at Craigmillar Castle. | Another shot of the stones. | If only I were king ....
2: Like, really big. For more information on the Ring of Brodgar hit wikipedia or go to www.orkneyjar.com/history/brodgar/. It's fascinating.
3: They're big. | And big.
4: Nope, can't push it over. | Me on the Craigs, with Edinburgh Castle in the background. | We were staying at a hotel about 9 km out of a town called Thurso. We were short on cash, so on the first day we walked all the way into town. Despite the blue sky, it was still cold. | 'Twas a good feed and good fun. After dinner we all had to bring/perform/show something to do with our culture - so I read The Man From Snowy River. | This one is out of sequence for some reason. It's just after we got our flat and I started looking for work. It was weird putting a suit on after 6 months or more travelling in the developing world. Thankfully I don't have to wear the tie or jacket any more.
5: Two days before Christmas we spoiled ourselves with a Christmas meal at the Castle restaurant. Cheers to you! | Us in the forecourt.
6: Then on Christmas day we had lunch at our flat with Emily, who is also doing Cathy's degree. She's from America. | Ian and Me.
7: We did a more Aussie lunch - just lots of finger food, dips and cheeses and stuff. | Drinking mulled wine in freezing temperatures in central Edinburgh for the Christmas celebrations. | Below the Bridal Veil falls. It's the smallest, but the power of the water coming over the edge is amazing. | A shot of me on the boat.
8: Looking out on to the rapids. | On Goat Island, between the two sets of falls.
9: Me looking at the water thundering over the edge. | Me looking down.
10: Boston. Noodles. Just like footscray.
11: In winter, they ice skate on this pond. | I think this was Harvard.
12: yep. Cheers. Cool. everybody didn't know my name.
13: Too cool, too cool ... | Got to go for a helicopter ride over the site. | The seafood in Boston rocks.
14: Can't remember what purpose the model of the cow served. | Me, Lake Michigan and Chicago. My kind of town. | Engrossed in Stavesacre.
15: Me at the Cornerstone Festival site, preparing things for the onslaught of 25,000 music fans. | Inside the Chicago aquarium.
16: An atrium somewhere in Chicago. | Bogan with a Melbourne Bitter. I think that the good stuff had run out. | In the underground exhibit - it's set up to make it like you've been shrunk to the size of a grain of sand. I'm sitting in a model of some sort of earth mite. | Cutting the cake. We were so knackered by here. | Hugs and greetings.
17: Enough hugs. Let's go.
18: A close up of our rings. | Stealing a moment.
19: Someone said something funny. | Kissy photo. | Something funny. | Giving our speeches. | More hugs.
20: My boys, Stu and Charlesy. | Me and the boys. | Looking at photos from the week before. | Looking at photos from the week before.
21: Cathy's nan, colour. | Waiting, while the girls do their photos. | My parents, colour.
22: Us. | Us and the train.
23: Me and the Wilson girls, in colour. | The umbrella again.
