Great Weekend!

Friday night was dinner with E&J at Mexican: Had to Happen in Nth Syd, always a good Friday night feed. Quesidilas if you want something reasonable and tasty, All-you-can-eat Fajitas if you’re up for it.
Then we all watched Dogtown and Z-Boys on the couch. Great movie interviewing the Z-Boys from Venice Beach. Having been there a couple of times it was interesting to see how the area has changed. And of course the skateboarding itself was insane. I was amazed at the amount of footage they had from the 70’s. Craig Stecyk (the cinematographer) must have had his camera with him all the time.

Saturday morning was out to Glebe to the markets for a look around. I’d never been so it was interesting to check out.
Saturday we drove up to Blue Mountains and E&J took me out for a rockclimb at Mt York. I’ve been indoor climbing a couple of times over the last couple of months, but I’ve never been out on rock. It was great. Quite different from the easy to identify coloured plastic holds at the gym. The rock is obviously quite rough, so the fingertips were a little worn away quite quickly. I got my first climb and then moved to a more difficult climb where I ran into a couple of challenging problems 🙂
Saturday night was a family do at Leura Golf Club (My cousin’s 21st, Uncle’s 50th and Uncle and Aunt’s 25th wedding anniversary). Nice to see the family.

Sunday morning got out for another climb at Shipley. I did one of the climbs and got it, though I came off a couple of times. It was a 20 (apparently).
Then back to Sydney, nearly 3 hours on the train…. (joy)
Went to the Orpheum to see Little Miss Sunshine, which was a great movie. One of those movies that can be so awkward and so wrong and yet so funny. Then on for a little dinner at an Egyptian/African restaurant in Mosman that was very nice. A great end to the weekend.
