Weekend Trip to Jervis Bay

Thursday (9th September) we travelled south and stayed in a beach house in Jervis Bay.

 Apart from a few showers and breezy moments the weather was kind to us - as hot as a UK summer! 

Our holiday home

... and here is the view from our bedroom and the deck!

On the way we stopped at Kiama for a sarnie and a quick look at the blowhole ...

On Friday we went to Green Patch beach - a lovely location with blue seas and white sands all to ourselves - Ron even went for a swim which encouraged the boys to strip off!

We went back next day and had a BBQ visited by a kangaroo who smelled the sausages!

Overall a great weekend!!

Sydney Day 2

Well day one was arrival and jetlag so our visit to Aus starts on day 2.  We are staying in a suburb of Sydney called Randwick - own shopping centre and an easy bus ride to the city centre.  Staying with daughter Toni and family who are here for a year.  Flight was as expected but Airbus is quieter.

Alex went to preschool for the day and we went into the city.

Our first view of the magnificent harbour bridge.

Ron, Toni and Ollie in front of the Opera House

Ollie chose the biggest ice cream!

Ollie took this picture!

A short rest on the Opera House steps

After mooching around the harbour we had a picnic lunch in the botanic gardens the ibis are very tame and will steal your food at the drop of a hat.

Large flying foxes are hanging in the trees.

So peaceful it is hard to believe it is in the centre of a city.
