With the weather cooling down, I’ve been in the look out for comfort food. I’ve been in the lookout for a vegetarian carbonara recipe, with varying degrees of success.

Coastal walk – Bundeena
Going through photos yet to be uploaded reminded me yet again how crazy full this year had been. Random walks being one of the unexpected activities this year.

Burgers in the Concrete City – NY part 1 of many
Time is a ticking and there are still so many more photos to upload from New York. New York in summer is rather glorious, despite the scalding bitumen.
