Re: PICTURE POST II!

Kestra it feels like hard gelatine. If you push it it seems it might pop, but it won't because it's fairly dense. It is also smooth but not slimy like the clear ones we get here. I've seen quite a few different kinds on the shore, including common and very painful ones ( up north) but these are the most dramatic! It was amazing watching them swim.

If you want big though you have to go to the Nomura Jellyfish which can weigh over 400lbs.. which we do not have here!

And btw it is easy to find jellyfish to eat here as well (the tentacles).. though they taste like nothing, only what they are marinated in.

Kind of like tofu.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yeah they are like clear, chewy kinda crunchy strings. They have even less flavour than tofu, really they bring texture to the flavour of the dish.

To continue my last day of summer pics.. (I've had at least 5 last day of summer days, the summer keeps going and going this year)..

Saw about 8 penguins in the rocks. This was the best pic I got. These are Fairy Penguins which are have a colony of about 800 near the city. Also saw a fluffy baby one






Black Swans which are native to Australia and were wading up to anyone with food.






My beautiful city! The penguins were in the rocks curving mid left of the picture.






Had the Vegetarian Tapas platter. It was fantastic and of course sitting out over water in the sun makes everything wonderful.






In Vino Veritas, Melbourne is a gorgeous place. And that's a pinot gris.

All your other pics are awesome (cute fluffy birds!), but this looked too good not to comment upon.
I'm going to need to reference this picture next time someone asks me whether I get bored eating "just vegetables."

That's a yummy-looking table of food. The bright colors and variety alone are making my mouth water.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

This is an old photo of my nephew, but I'm posting it today because his sweet kitty, Franklin, died this morning. His old dog, Henry, died a few years ago. I love this picture- Sam was doing his best to pay attention to both pets!

Thanks (everyone)!

Yeah vegetables are anything but boring. And the colours! They are more exciting than meat IMO if done right.

Maybe we should revive the veggie thread.. but I'll try and post any great veggie meals I have here, if I remember. I do take pictures of most food LOL

He was a pretty big dog, but yeah, he stuck his face in the camera. I still miss him.

Thanks, cooleddie!

I'd never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge before. Of course, they were doing renovations on large sections of it, but nevertheless, it was a *very* cool experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it. And was happy to get a couple of cool shots in the process.
