We started the year with a trip to Australia. We loved it. We flew into Sydney and went up and down the coast. Everywhere we went took a long time in our little rental car. (No major interstate systems there!) We worked that car really hard going up and down the mountains and hills of Australia! It was fantastic scenery though. Unforgettable. The kids loved the kangaroos, dingos, wallabies, and all the other things we don't see in the United States! We spent one late evening watching the small Fairy Penguins leave the sea and go to their nests. They cooed and called to their mates. The kids sat in complete quiet to watch them in amazement! Nature at it's best!
I have many more trips and photographs to add to the blog as I organize again. It's also time to will start back into the Christmas creating mode for Christmas in July at my etsy shop! I can't believe half the year is gone. I say that with many happy memories behind me from this year, and am still looking forward to the rest of what this year has to hold!
I've attached a few photographs of our visit to Australia! A lovely spot! Highly recommended!
