From our house to yours... Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, however you celebrate the season, we hope it's full of love, friendship and joy.
A great weekend in Sydney, meeting up with old friends and meeting new friends from Canada at Squires Landing at The Quay.
A little bit of synchronicity, on returning home. I found this watercolour at my local shop. We'd been chatting with new friends and sailors from this area in Canada. I've never seen any artworks of Canada before in our small home town, in fact anywhere in Australia for that matter. The Hawaiians have a saying, 'mea e kālele ana ma luna o kou kiʻi hou o' - 'what you focus on you get more of'. Perhaps it was after listening to stories of sailing on Lake Ontario, which brought my attention to the painting or synchronicity, who knows but it was fun to see. I hope you get to visit OZ again one day M & R - thanks again for a lovely evening at The Quay.
Before the drive home we had a lovely stop off at a favourite spot we discovered last year, while house sitting on Sydney Harbour. Flying Bear at Kirribilli - highly recommended.
Fancy a water front camping site for a night or more? Check out Cockatoo Island, for basic stays to upmarket glamping.
We have seen more of Sydney now that we don't live there, as tourists, than we did in over 30 years as residents. What a beautiful Harbour we have. And, how great are our ferries and water ways to travel on. Can't wait for our next trip down there.
