We are far behind Canada and the UK in the clock-changing stakes, but this weekend the clocks go back an hour. At least that means for a couple of weeks the Sunday morning surf will not begin in the dark as it did last Sunday. But the sunrise was beautiful.
The cooling nights meant we had the first misty morning in a while:
After my first day at work (!) T and I went for a walk along the south east corner of Mosman and through Sydney harbour national park. Not only did we spot a friendly Kookaburra (below), but also a bush turkey...and a snake! I promptly jumped behind T with a shriek (well I did nearly step on it - it was T that spotted it!) and stayed behind him until the snake had slithered away. I think it was a green tree snake, which aren't venomous.
I now suffer the 'joys' of commuting. On my third day at work it took me 55 minutes to get home, rather than the usual 12-15. Not only had a bus caught fire (no-one was hurt) but somebody had broken down. At 3pm on a weekday, any such incident just chokes the road up which is busy at the best of times. I secretly loved it, as it was a novelty. Next time, I'm pretty sure I won't feel quite the same.
It's a very long weekend here, as not only is Good Friday a holiday, but also Monday. T is working Friday and Monday, and I am working Saturday so it's like normal for us. Normal, with the addition of chocolate, of course!
