The third and fourth days I spent in Florida were at Disney World.
On the first day there I went to the Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios – until rain brought an early end to the day. On the second day I began at Hollywood Studios and then went to Epcot and back to the Magic Kingdom for the Wishes Fireworks.
The video below shows the first minute of the wishes fireworks. The whole show was amazing. Additionally, the photos that follow are from across the two days – but photos and video don’t do the two days full justice, it was such an amazing and unique place to go to.
Yesterday I went with two friends to Wentworth Falls and the Valley of the Waters in the Blue Mountains. It was near freezing and the winds were below freezing, but it was a beautiful day.
Starting from the conservation hut we began on the short cut track, and cut through to breakfast point lookout. From there through to Wentworth Falls and down, down and down the slack stairs to Wentworth Pass, then back up through the Valley of the Waters. It took us 3 hours 45 minutes. This is the first solid hike I’ve done in quite a while and with the massive climb out of the valley my legs are so sore this morning.
On the Saturday of ANZAC weekend I went to the New Zealand round of the V8 Supercars Championship at Pukekohe Park Raceway.
This is the first time I’ve been to Pukekohe since 2006. Many changes have been made to Pukekohe over the past few years to improve safety. However, for spectators this has come at the loss of a few good places to stand and watch the racing. In addition, in places, the double set of catch fencing makes seeing the action up close rather difficult.
In late February I went with some mates up to Wisemans Ferry for a drive and a very short walk. Our original plan was continue along Wisemans Ferry Road through to the M1 but this was thwarted by a lack of time that day. Last Saturday we completed the trip by starting at the other end and travelling into Wisemans Ferry via Mooney Mooney and Peats Ridge.
Last weekend I went to the Top Gear Festival at Sydney Motorsport Park.
Below is a short video and then a few photos from the day. While the show wasn’t quite as good as last year, the festival was still fantastic with a wide variety of cars, racing, stunts and entertainment.
