Peter had to have treatment at the Dental Center for a broken off tooth and I had to go for another visit to a dental clinic for getting new dentures fitted. I’ll have to go to Sydney two more times for further fittings. Caroline came to see us again and later on also Matthew. It was great to see them both.
Last Saturday Peter and I went on this excursion to the highlands. Sunday I ventured on my own for a walk to Lake Illawarra while Peter did his running training. I took heaps of pictures at the lake. So here I show some of them.

I've lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under berlioz1935.wordpress.com

So beautiful – and thanks for sharing it 🙂
Thanks for the comment, Cat. 🙂
Funny. There is also a Hyde Park district here in Boise, Idaho! I always laugh about that. Ours was actually named for an early resident of the area.
Love you photos, especially the one of the pier extending into the water.
Thanks, Linda. This week is the last week of the winter school holidays. So far the kids were very lucky with the weather: Cold nights, but lovely sunshine during the day. 🙂 Lots of kids take the chance to roam about outdoors in this beautiful winter sun. Near the lake are great areas for picnics and barbecues. Also there’s a lovely large playground. Many families had a great day near the lake last Sunday. But I didn’t dare to take pictures of all the people. I always worry that some people might not like it.
Lovely pictures Auntyuta.
The days are already about 4 minutes longer and we are on the way to spring. Bulbs have come up and today it was 16c. Lovely!
Thanks, Gerard. 🙂 I agree, 4 minutes already makes a difference. To be outside in the lovely winter sun on a clear cold winter day with no wind is just lovely. However sitting inside you have to rug up and sit as close to the heater as possible! Warm drinks are very welcome too.
Peter had seen the dentist yesterday. A piece of one of his molars had broken off. The tooth did not hurt but was in a bad condition and couldn’t carry his dentures any more. The extraction was difficult but without any pain for the spot had been sufficiently numbed. However, just now Peter started to feel some rather annoying pain. His face is a bit swollen too. I think he needs a good rest.
What a gorgeous lake! It appears to be huge! I love the statue of Queen Victoria, too. Hope the dental work goes well…it always feels so good when those appointments conclude!
Yes, thank you Debra. Peter is all right now with his teeth. The lake is a great feature in our area. Peter took the picture of the statue the other day in Sydney. I like the trees as background. 🙂

Danke, liebe Gislinde, Ja, es geht mir ganz gut. Ich wünsche dir auch ein schönes Wochenende. Liebe Grüsse, Uta.
Remember Hyde park barracks from my army days, and that statue of Victoria is a well known Aussie icon, great pics as usual Auntyuta.
Thank you, Ian. 🙂
The creek looks inviting.
Thanks. Robert. I took this picture of the creek from a bridge. I kind of liked the view of it. 🙂
What a beautiful place, Aunty Uta!
Thanks, Inigo, I agree, this lake is very beautiful. 🙂
Beautiful photos, Aunty Uta. You really DON’T go out without your camera, ever!! 🙂
That’s a long way to go for teeth, but I”m sure will be worth it.
Thank you, Noeleen. The Sydney Holistic Dental Center is really worth a visit! 🙂
