aka the when Mum comes to visit edition, because that’s when we go out to a beachside cafe for breakfast:
We shared scrambled eggs on multigrain toast and field mushrooms with goats’ cheese on toasted sourdough, with apple/carrot/celery/ginger juice. This was our view this morning.
Then we went for a walk along the South Coogee clifftops, where unfortunately our sunny mood was spoilt: someone desperate for a better view had been poisoning some trees (according to the signs the council workers were installing which were going to be even taller than the dying trees).
What makes this act of vandalism even more incomprehensible than the rest of Sydney’s viewspot tree poisonings, is that a slight head-swivel at this spot gives the view below:
EDIT: That’s right – that’s a large expanse of clifftop parkland devoid of obstructing trees just a few metres away from where the trees have been poisoned. Across the road from these signs (but behind where I am standing on the common ground) is a block of flats currently undergoing expensive refurbishment presumably in the hopes of attractive an expansive profit.
Whodunnit? I dunno.
And here’s the random 10:

Not enough angry music for my mood today.
