PhotoHunt: Me - Portofino Memory

This is my latest entry.

Well who'd have thought!

I just saw this on a PhotoHunt blog, and as I love cars - I just couldn't resist.

I'm a Dodge Viper!

You're all about raw power. You're tough, you're loud, and you don't take crap from anyone. Leave finesse to the other cars, the ones eating your dust.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Do you remember

Those little candy cigarettes? DO you?

All I have to say is - gees Louise! While shaking my head. And yes, I did use to eat them when I was a little girl.

Good news!

Giancarlo cleaned up the gargage! It looks SO much better! You should have seen it before!

This is his car, which used to be mine. It was in one piece when I had it!

"Say Heath, what do you reckon this piece is, and where does it go?"
"Gees Giancarlo, I don't have a clue. Better ask your mum, she knows more about cars than we do."

Oh well, I love MY new car. :)

PhotoHunt - Venice, the candy store

This is my latest entry.

September ‘07
Alessandro and I were walking back to the convent hotel near Campo Santo Maria Formosa after having dinner at Campo San Provolo, at Trattoria da Ninos, when we saw this candy store.

Ok, just for fun, here is a candy store in Positano as well.

And I couldn't resist adding in this one:

Alessandro went charter fishing - again!

Last time he went was during his March trip to Adelaide when he was representing his state in pool. This time it was during our trip to Batemans Bay last month. He caught the biggest fish of the day. It was a snapper.

In 1992 I saw a documentary of Camogli and decided to take my family there. Later that year, we watched the fishermen mending their nets, gazed in awe at the trompe d'oeil and I made a secret vow to return there one day.

Well, it took me a while. My next visit was during my Enchanted April trip of 2005. I was a bit more fortunate with the 2006 trip, as I managed to stay there overnight before heading to Santa Margherita. I made an afternoon visit to Camogli from there and looked in some art galleries, watched more fishermen with their nets and sat for ages gazing at the fishing boats, the delectable painted houses and listened to the church bells peal.

Crimson Rosella

I have lots of rosellas - this one was amusing my cats in the tree just outside our window.
