Long time coming!

Since I freely admit I am not a whizz on the computer you will not find it suprising that I penned a long and detailed blog with appropriate pictures and subsequently lost the lot before posting! Thus, this post may well be short and sharp.

The most exciting news to share was that after months of trying Sal, Duncan and I managed a rare guided tour of the decomissioned Wangi Wangi Power Station. 3 and a bit hours of sheer bliss, with a touch of fear thrown in for good measure! I took STACKS of photos. Here are some.....

I shot about 300 and you might think that there is little of interest in an old power station, but you would be so very very wrong!! They even had a theatre where they showed both movies and educational material. There was a laboratory too, which was strangely still set up as though the lab technicians left on a friday and forgot to come back to work monday! It was a little eerie!! The 65 acre site now had government approval for 80 freestanding homes and 110 apartments. It will bring great prosperity and employment to the area. I can't wait to see it finished. The owner and developer has great vision.
As I don't want this post to disappear into the ether I shall post........Now!
