    It was, @kmakm  - I was sitting there talking to myself, saying 'I am not enjoying this.  I am  not enjoying this'!  LOL

    NO @kitkatb - I couldn't even land one fish in 4hrs of fishing - with 2 hrs of it being in rain.   :(  I had about 30 hits (on fly) but the mongrels couldn't find the hooks!!   At least I got the hits! Some didn't even get that!  (I am not very good at Fly Fishing!  LOL)  Every fish caught on fly = 100 on lure = 500 on bait!!

    I had much more fun the next day, with my 'toyboy' on his big Bream boat!  Hooning around the lake at 100kph!  He is in Sydney doing a big comp over the next 3 days, then another one on the weekend.  You can watch some of the best in the country over the next 3 days, Live, here:

    I went down there yesterday as youngest was taking part in a swimming clinic and part of it was her first open water swim.  She got out to the island and back in increasingly choppy water while I leisurely paddled around by the shore.

    @Sidter Well done her. And you of course!

    Years ago I unintentionally used to break rain droughts by organising group picnics or family camping trips. One camping trip in the drought ended in snowfall. However, I have now had twenty years of successful planning trips. Until this last weekend. Forecast was for clear skies and 31o. Ummm, torrential downpour. Looks like my successful plans are over. Back to drought breaking. Anybody want me?

    Come camping over here @Blossom1961 ; We need more rain!  Mind you, I've stayed in Coober Pedy 3 times in my life - on 2 of them it absolutely bucketed down.

    They'll call you the rainmaker, @Sister  ..... have you dared to go  back??

    We had thunderstorms & rain every afternoon from Friday thru to Monday!  My buddies who were camping for our fishing weekend weren't too impressed!!

    I was in Sydney last weekend, house, dog and guinea pig minding. On a relaxed streel round The Rocks market, I asked a stallholder who had the best coffee. Straight away she pointed me towards Dare Cafe. And then she lifted her cup of coffee to tell me that they supported the breast cancer organisation Think Pink Foundation. She had no idea I'd had breast cancer, but of course it sealed the deal, and what's more, the coffee was very good indeed. So if you're in Playfair Street, this is the place to go!

    Over Easter I walked on Shelly Beach, at Moruya South Heads. The beach is just inside South Head, and is quite sheltered. This photo taken at the breakwater at the western end of the beach; looking west up the Moruya River to the mountains. There was a big storm and flood several years ago which washed a lot of trees down the river. The wood is still washing in and out of the beach - people make  cubbies and sculptures.
    Best wishes to all from jennyss now back in Western NSW
