Sydney - The City

Don captured the ever moving face of the city on the harbour, in this photo. Taken on the station at Circular Quay, with Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background. I really like it.

Making Memories

I have just returned to Abu Dhabi after a month visiting family in Sydney. I enjoyed picnics in the park and visits to the beach and sunny days in winter. But most of all my family and the memories we made.

Celebrating "the big one"

One of Sydney's lovely parks and a sunny day combined for a perfect birthday picnic.

Lollipops and Balloons

Lollipops and balloons were the the hit of the day at the park. Layne and Hayley wonder if this is really an "all day" lollipop. Joshua is making sure those balloons don't take to the sky.

Birthday picnic in the park

I don't know who had more fun, the kids or the adults!

New baby joy

"Ava Grace" was born while I was in Sydney. She is such a cutie and adored by her big brother and sister. Layne just can't keep up with all the cuddles and mothering needed, between Ava and her bunny rabbit.

Fun in Sydney with the Family

It seemed like every day was a sunny day, although it was winter in Sydney. Manly Beach was gorgous on the day that I went with Glen and Nichole and Jared. They are moving to Queensland soon and will be sure to enjoy the beautiful beaches there.
