Black Out

Here are a few photos of the beautiful sunrise a week-ish ago. and also a few oh the shots i took when we had the black out and wild weather. my shop lost power, but half of the rest of the centre didn't. so there is a photo from inside my shop, looking out. kinda eeiry.

Day Four - The Drive Home

Now, for some reason I'm missing half of my photos from the drive home. we stopped off in Holbrook and took a few photos of the submarine there, and there were also a couple photos of Bonnie Doon, and just random speeding along the highway ones. but they have gone missing. (hopefully they are still on steve's computer though).

these were taken around Gundagai. well, Dog On Tuckerbox anyway. the clouds gave a good contrast to the very dry ground.

Day Three - The Family

On Sunday, two of Steves cousins came around and we had a nice BBQ lunch, and played pool all afternoon, and just had a nice relaxing day. I also took a few photos of old nanna-ish things. the fake flowers, the green bird, an old lamp, some spices (not featured here).

Day Two - The City

(Edit: you couldn't see half of the photos, hopefully this will have resolved that issue, though the photos are all out of order now)

on the saturday, we caught the double-decker train into the city, via the Bridge.
we walked around (admittedly getting very lost, as Sydney's CBD is very very different from Melbourne's). We explored Hyde Park, the War memorial, walked down to Circular Quay, to the Opera House, then caught a ferry to Manly, came back, and walked around the Botanic Gardens for the rest of the day. we saw a grand total of 6 or 7 weddings while in the gardens! also, lots of fruit bats.
we got home in time for beer and dinner. a very nice day (even though i got very sun burnt)

Day One - Friday

On Friday Steve and I explored the gully out the back of his grandparents house (most of northern Sydney has these gullies running through it. very rocky, impossible to build on, but very beautiful).
However, one thing that I didn't like, were all these spiders. everywhere. literally! they had very big, sticky webs, and the spiders were quite large.

in the afternoon we went north of Sydney for a bit to the Hawksbury River and had a bit of an explore.

(we also went through Bonnie Doon on both the way up, and the way back from Sydney. Classic movie that is...)
