Here are some of the photos I took on a recent bus trip to the Sapphire Coast in New South Wales with some Probus friends. We stayed in beautiful Eden and visited Tilba Tilba, Mallacoota, Merimbula, Narooma, Bega Cheese Factory and ate and drank far too much. The area we visited on the South Coast of New South Wales (known as the Sapphire Coast) is really beautiful, and on a day trip on the water at Eden we saw a dolphins, a seal and a fairy penguin. We also visited a winery in Central Tilba. These photos are from Central Tilba, a lovely little heritage listed historic village with a small, (approximately 100) and very artistic population. Hope you enjoy these memories.
These are some photos I took last Sunday at the Nan Tien Buddhist Temple. I went there by train and bus with a group of friends for the day. It was built in 1992 and has expanded since then to encompass an institute, retreat and university courses involving Buddhism and health and well being,as well as cooking, calligraphy and other activities.
It is the largest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere and sits in the midst of beautiful, tranquil grounds with manicured trees and hedges and a beautiful lotus pond and pagoda.
I recently visited my son Jake and his partner Tash at Toowoomba. The week before was their Flower Festival and many of the public parks had beautiful flower displays. Here are a few photos I took there.
Here are a few of many photos taken a couple days on my first visit to a recently completed new public park in Sydney minutes from the CBD. The area was known as “The Hungry Mile” during The Great Depression as men had to queue up at the crack of dawn hoping to be picked for jobs on the docks.
