Lunch at Prato in Abbotsford


We decided to go out and find someplace new for lunch and we happened across Prato, in a lovely old 1910 heritage listed building. Food was delicious but overpriced; $20 for my steak sandwich… with no garnish.  Interestingly, the food items on the receipt were listed on the menu as $10, $22 and $22 respectively.

A majestic turn over Drummoyne


At the end of this month, United will replace the 747-400s on the Sydney routes with 777s after decades of jumbo service. I will miss seeing the behemoths thundering over our house on sunny afternoons, making their turn out over the Pacific. You could always hear the distinctive scream of four Pratt & Whitneys at full throttle and you knew it was United!
