Tighes Hill TAFE

The worst of the dust has cleared, but there are still lots of allergens out there, the wind still blows and it's cold - well cold for late September in Newcastle, 16C, and I have lots of little jobs to do. So we didn't go too far afield this morning, choosing the TAFE grounds for our walk. The campus sits between Styx Creek and Throsby Creek and has mature fig trees as well as white cedar, eucalypt, and native shrubs now in flower.
