In To Wollongong with Sirdan — more than the usual Sunday lunch (May 25, 2008) you may discern the beginning, perhaps, of my present location back in Wollongong.

Sirdan’s new VW Golf Polo Match — generic pic above — is beautiful to ride in, and amazingly quiet too. Conscious this was a trip we had engaged in hypothetically with Lord Malcolm last year, and given today would have been his 51st birthday, we set out to explore at last the road bridge at Scarborough south of Sydney.

Over on Ninglun’s Specials, another of my blogs in suspension these days, I posted a sequel: Sirdan’s pics from the Wollongong trip.

Ninglun’s Specials began as a picture blog in March 2008. It morphed into a photo blog until in due course the current photo blog came into being. One of the continuing functions of Ninglun’s Specials is as a repository of family history posts. In that it is still very active.
