Whiter than white

August 2nd, 2011

Whitebeach

Hyams Beach, Jervis Bay. Hundred miles or so south of Sydney. Claims to have the whitest sand in the world. Guinness Book of Records and all that. Bit exclusive. Haunt of film stars. Millionaires. And yours truly.

Cute critter

August 2nd, 2011

Kangaroo(2)

At last. A kangaroo close up. A wild one. Pretty tame though. In the back yard of the house I’m staying in down in Jervis Bay. Hundred miles or so south of Sydney. Incidentally, this is a young marsupial. A mature one of the red variety can stand at over six feet tall.

Stingray!

Stingray! from Ken Roberts on Vimeo.

Yep. It really is that big. Rather graceful. But best to keep clear of the barb at the back.

Whale watching

Whale watching from Ken Roberts on Vimeo.

Footage remarkable for one thing. About as convincing as a non-aggression pact with the Germans. Best watched using binoculars. Close up.

Sanctuary

July 31st, 2011

I’d met up again with Debbie and Steve, friends I’d stayed with a few days earlier back in Sydney’s southern suburbs. This time at their weekend retreat at Sanctuary Point in Jervis Bay. Progress had been better than I’d expected, which was very welcome as I’d been entrusted with the house keys. Late would be poor form.

We’d spent the weekend together, exploring the curiosity that is Jervis Bay. For it forms part of Australia’s smallest State, the Australian Capital Territory, known as ACT. I’d thought the Territory comprised of just Canberra, a few hundred kilometres inland. Unaware of its satellite on the coast. You’d hardly be aware of it but for the albeit low key presence of Federal rather than State Police.

They’d returned to the daily grind in Sydney whilst I’d remained to tackle some of the less exciting, but necessary, parts of the project. Preparing for the increasingly imminent on-move to Alaska. Airlines to book. Logistics to consider. Bike box to organise. Immigration requirements to satisfy. Time-consuming rather than difficult. Knew what needed to be done. Just a question of getting on with it.
