As we cruised along in PT, MLP mused, "Are there any other towns in Australia named after a fruit?" Then my mind started to wander. Is there a town called Apple ... or Pear ... or Grapefruit? Ah-ha, there is a town called Banana! I know. I've driven through it many times.
When you've had a sofa, well, lounge suite, for nigh on 30 years and it's been recovered and restored a couple of times and MLP suggests, insinuates, hints maybe that he'd like to think about a new one, what do you do?
I love to be in the bush. I love the smell of eucalyptus, the presence of birds, the colour of flowers, the purity of the air ... It's a humbling experience. So, a couple of Sundays ago, I led MLP to a spot I had discovered. The Nepean Gorge.
