I’m off for several days of hiking and camping in the Blue Mountains, about an hour and a half west of Sydney. It’s looking like I’ve got a good three day window between the weather. We haven’t had the rains they’ve had up north where all the flooding is occurring, but it’s still been an overly damp and gray start to the summer. (I’m sure I haven’t written about this before.) I’m rather bored with it all but I do try to console myself with the fact that it isn’t flooding here, nor is it painfully cold.
