Been ages…

Over a year hiatus from regular posts here at our YUNDA blog. Plenty has been going on — yet every available moment was spent outdoors instead of in front of a screen. Now that Winter has arrived, things have slowed (a tad) — so more time inside. I’ll add new entries retroactively as I’m able.

As always, our skies (both by day and night) are truly magical this time of year… here are a few of our favourites so far — enjoy!

Cooroora Mountain conquered!

Arnaud and I were determined to climb Cooroora Mountain before he departed… all 439 meters of her!

We got up early, enjoyed a brekkie prepared by Nick and set off. We drove through a new (to us) area of Pomona to the lower “base” car park from where we departed (near 07:00). By 08:10 we were at the summit. The trail was loose at the start, got better, then weaned off to near-nothing but a chain near the top… then nothing but air. We passed probably 70 people going up or down the trek and made it, only two stops for water, and MUCH sweat later!

WHAT A VIEW – all 360 degrees of it! (even stretching to the ocean and beyond). Words cannot express it — yet, neither can the pictures – but here goes…
