Antidote

 On Sunday, I spent the day at Antidote - at three talks from midday until 9pm at night. We had a leisurely lunch at Botanic House and I saw 5 different friends across the course of the day. It was fabulous to spend so much time at the Opera House and Botanic Gardens, while also learning and thinking a little.


It was the perfect antidote to many of the COVID blues.

  1. I am glad you experienced much that you love and need here. You sure did miss your Sydney "life" in COVID. xx

    1. SO MUCH!! I'm eyeing off festivals...that's what I'm hoping for. Still wearing a mask and much happier in a spaced venue...look like we're a little scarred or sensibly cautious...

  2. Sounds like a fabulous day! It feels good to get out and about a bit doesn't it? We're very lucky here. Hope things stay good! x

  4. Oh, look at that. I said: "I´d like to see `Phantom of the Opera` here" and Hubby replied, "OK, when we come back we go!". 6 months later it was not running anymore, I´ve never seen the place from the inside. One of the things that would´ve been a "once in a lifetime"...

  10. Great photos! I hope you're staying healthy - we're spiking like mad here in the US. Having a president who waffles and sets a poor example hasn't helped. Sigh.

    1. We have no community transmission at the moment, so it seems to be only returning travellers in hotel quarantine. Fingers crossed it stays that way!! You stay safe. I worry for all of you over there (and in Europe). It's a nasty virus.

  12. Awesome looking Opera house. Glad things are good over there. That has to be great to feel normal again. Has to be a relief. We're still bad in US. Praying Ohio doesn't head back to lock down. Thanks for sharing your photos of your time out and about.

  19. Beautiful shots, Lydia. Isn't it lovely to live almost normally now? Poor USA and Europe are having a hard time with COVID, and I suspect other countries around the world, which are nor reporting as much are also having a hard time.
    Thanks for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme.
