I’ve done an overhaul of my web site and added some photo galleries with lots of photos from my past round the world trips and time in Japan.

Plus added in some links to writing and language-study resources.

It was a dark and stormy week.

There was lots of rain in northern NSW and south-east Queensland.   My parents’ house is okay, but some towns near here had to be evacuated and some of the roads were cut off.  A couple of people were killed in the floods.

Two weeks ago one of my Irish relatives and her boyfriend stayed with us for a few days.  She’s my cousin’s daughter.  (At first I thought that made her my second cousin, but she’s actually my 1st cousin once removed.  My nephew is her second cousin.  Gets confusing!).  She and her boyfriend had been doing a working holiday and travelling around Australia.

We went down to Byron Bay for the day.  We also had a look at the beach near my parents’ house.  It’s a 10-minute walk to a really nice beach.  The weather was great.

After my cousin left, the weather got bad.  The storms washed away a lot of the sand from the beach.  On Friday I went down to the beach and took some photos and a video.  The wind was blowing lots of foam in the air.
