There are many things that are done better in the USA than in Australia, but corned beef is not one of them. America uses Brisket, while Australia uses Silverside, a much better cut of beef. Silverside has much less fat and gristle than brisket and does not respond well to roasting. However, it does very well when simmered for multiple hours such as in this recipe 'Dad's Corned Beef'. I've cooked this recipe a couple of times and the results have been wonderful.

We normally rise about 6 am and then eat breakfast. For a change, we went for a walk in the Hervey Bay Botanic Gardens before going to a cafe near the jetty to have brekkie.

The temperatures have lowered into the 70's and the pelicans have turned up. They presumably fly south for the summer. These photos were taken about 30 minutes after sunrise.

Nimbin is the hippy capital of Australia. It's a short drive north of Lismore so we decided to check it out. My sister, Anne, warned me 'not to inhale'.
