Cool video of a Koala and her Cub shot at Blackbutt Reserve in Newcastle in September 2011.
Blurb have updated their online viewer so that you can view the entire contents of Ruth and my book “Half Way Round”.
I am quite pleased with how the photo’s look online and this is a much easier, quicker and cost effective way to do a book compared to home printing and binding which I have done several times.
One of my favourite locations from our short visit to Scotland last year is Eilean Donan Castle on the road out to Syke.
We only had a time for two short visits, once on the way out to Skye when the weather cleared up perfectly for about an hour and another after dark on the way back.
I have been getting out for quite a bit of walking in recent times and I have found what I believe is the best walk in all of Newcastle.
The walk from Nobbys Surf Club along Nobbys Beach, the Southern Breeakwater and back to Nobby’s Surf Club. A easy stroll at just over 3 km on flat ground with a good path the whole way. It is only made slightly tougher if you choose to go out and/or back on the beach.

It has also been the source of some of my best photo’s including this small selection:
On our Half Way Round trip we had the privalege to see several Chinese acrobatic performances. This photo is from a cultural show we saw in Chengdu and shows one of the amazing tumbling sets.
