Sculptures by the Sea Part 3: Revenge of the Silt

When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life – Samuel Johnson Had he been born a few centuries later,  Johnson’s quote could equally be attributable to the city of Sydney. With another October (our third here) looming we were certainly not tired of life or Sydney and we geared ourselves up […]
