This travelling editor is having a restful holiday in beautiful Sydney and its surrounds. Arrived at Avalon, which is about 40km north of Sydney on a spectacular peninsula. There's a point when you realise you are in holiday territory here -it's when you drive around the Bilgola bends (overlooking Bilgola beach) and you are on the home stretch to the wonderful 'villages' of the peninsula. Quite heavily populated these days (especially during the summer holidays) the area has stunning beaches and unspoilt bushland (that which hasn't been encroached upon by developers who have had their pick of some damn fine real estate).
Anyway, it's a beautiful day; ham sandwiches, fruit cake and stone fruits are on the menu, the sun is out, the dog (Dell) wants to play ball and all is right with the world. Happy new year and may we all thrive, prosper and be content and serene in 2010.
