"Ole timers" excursion this week was a trip down to the southern suburbs - just a little nibble at the edge of the notorious "Shire" - winding around Brighton-le-sands, a loop through Dolls Point and then the stretch out to Kurnell and Captain Cook's Landing Place. We do place-names and ceremony poorly in Oz.
Belying the image, the storm did a lot of brewing and not much pouring. These fishermen are in the lee of the oil pipeline going from Kurnell to Botany - sometimes above the water sometimes below. As I said, we do historic sites pathetically. What other nation would allow this abomination to be built within 200yds of the "birthplace of the nation"?
