Summer was a busy time with Christmas/New Year's sandwiched in with camping, fishing, beaching, boarding, hoops, tapas, the aquarium, sushi, and a trip to a galaxy far, far away. What a tasty sandwich it was. Cheers, DMG.

All aboard for a beaut of a day fishing off of Sussex Inlet. The catch included snapper, flatheads and a wobbegong shark.

AKA the Guitar Fish. This one, caught by the skipper, was too ugly to keep. The Horror!

This little beaut, accompanied by his little brother, went on the BBQ and was served up with a potato bake, salad and a nice Australian Chardonnay.

A rosella is one of 5-8 species of colorful Australian parrots in the genus Platycercus. Platycercus means "broad-" or "flat-tailed", reflecting a feature common to the rosellas and other members of the broad-tailed parrot tribe. Their diet consists mainly of seeds and fruit.
