Settling In

First Week, excellent flight down, missed new years eve...twice!
Water definitely swirls the other way down here...
Settling in in the 'hinterland' behind Byron Bay in a small town called Goonengerry.
starting to organize the bakery tours, and will be travelling up to Brisbane and the Gold Coast on Monday.

Mid 20's and a bit cloudy today. Hope the snow has finally stopped back home (smirk? not me!)

Glad you had a pleasant trip.Was the plane full,or did you have extra seats?Have you seen Patsy's old homestead?
B.C had much more snow and lots of rain.They have a huge flooding & mudslide problem.It's still raining and no end in sight.

Why this blog.....

My photo
January to March 2009. I was on Professional Development leave from my teaching Job at the Culinary Institute of Vancouver Island Universtity. I chose to take a 3 month leave to visit bakeries and teachng institutions in Australia. Thank you to VIU and my union (BCGEU) for supporting this venture. The aim of this blog was to keep an ongoing diary of my experiences and share them with my students and colleagues. This sure beats coming up with a report and slide show months later. I mean "FRESH" is what baking is all about! Learned to bake back in 1978....making granola...but that is another story. .
