The weather was forecast earlier this week to be overcast and rainy, but it came good with enough wind to let the sun shine through. Here are some landscape highlights from coastal scenes to a mid-afternoon walk around the top of an old volcanic plug.

We took the chairlift up to The Nut which stands above the town of Stanley. and walked down because the lift closed before our descent.  A new and temporary feature of this blog is “Where’s Bec?”, brought to you via a current family joke. Normal service will resume when she is far enough away again to do me no harm.

Last night we ate very well at a local noodle and dumpling place for around A$7.00. 


Tonight we visited the Kebaya Dining Room for a set menu with a wonderful fusion of Nyonya and modern flavours. Not the same price as last night’s meal but great value nevertheless. 







A few highlights from today.

Tracking down more street art murals.  In this mix is Brother and Sister on a Swing and Children Playing Basketball by Louis Gan, a Penang-born artist and The Real Bruce Lee Would Never Do This, a piece from the 101 Lost Kittens project. 

If you happen to be walking down near the wharves, it’s not hard to tell that a new cruise liner has arrived in town.

And a Georgian house, restored to its early 19th century state. The restaurant upstairs in Suffolk House caters for lunches and afternoon teas.
