Simba just making sure I wasn't lost... again

Surf Beach

It had only been about 8 weeks since my last coastal trip but with the usual Jan/Feb HR activities intensifying and completed, I felt I had to go chill and recharge.  So I took my dependent furkid and headed to a new favourite of mine: Surf Beach, situated just south of Batemans Bay.  Photos after the fold.

Fusion labs concluded, results tabled

I embarked on a personal food journey at the start of September last year that would see a swag full of new tastes and experiences never before travelled. The challenge: to attempt a new dish each week until the end of the year and subject them to judgement, humility, tears, joy, laughter, greatness. My side goal was to hold back delivering food poisoning to those dishing out sub par critiques :)

So how did the dishes fare? Let’s take a look.

Middle Eastern sausage rolls

These past two weeks have seen essentially mango everything. On average, I’d say I’d have a mango by itself each day and then I’d later make 3 thickshakes out of another two. The shakes are fanbloodytastic and are mixed with natural goodness: low fat plain yoghurt and a swirl of fresh honey. One of these days, probably before Xmas, I’ll be trying out a mango salsa to go with the ham!

But enough about the mangos, and more about these Middle Eastern sausage rolls.

Scratch one personal goal

For as long as I could remember (read: 2-3 weeks), I’ve had an ambitious goal of riding around all of Canberra’s lakes in one sitting. This was something I had never contemplated doing, ever, let alone since May of this year when I started riding again after earning my driver’s license back in the late 90s!

Here’s a summary: 118.4km, 1054m climbed, 4:37hr moving time.

Kaddie and Simba

Kaddie’s mum Sue sent through some great shots of the two besties having a great time after class a month or so back. There are some neat action shots in the collection with droplets of water frozen in air. The two always have a great time together and frequently swap roles chasing. Kaddie is the more agile one and is often found encouraging Simba to get off the ground resting. They are both restless, distracted and agitated when they don’t get each other’s attention during class.
