Christmas countdown

Wed 16th November 2011

The Christmas countdown has begun here in Sydney. The shops are decorated with trees, tinsel and some are even playing Christmas carols.

Matt says...

Christmas in the summer! It’s going to be one weird Christmas day!

Claire says...

Christmas decorations when it’s 30 degrees? I’m sure we’ll get used to it, but look at the sun and blue sky in the background. It doesn’t feel right somehow does it?

 

Macquaries Point

Tue 15th November 2011

The sun came out for our walk around Macquaries Point today. And just look at this stunning view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House!

Matt says...

This panoramic was taken with Claire’s small digital camera. There’s a slight curve in the horizon but other than that it turned out great. Love the view!

Roosting in the trees

Tue 15th November 2011

In the gardens we also noticed some fruit bats were attempting to roost in the trees – during the day! There were lots of them too, trying to shelter from the heat.

Matt

Matt says...

These bats are huge, and they just hang about in the trees. There are signs up around saying the council are trying to get rid of them as they damage and kill the trees.

 
Claire

Claire says...

We heard a lot of squawking in the trees and looked up to see lots of bats hanging there in broad daylight!

 

The final Cockatoo

Tue 15th November 2011

Oh come on then, one more won’t make any difference…

Matt

Matt says...

All I’m thinking to myself in this photo is “please don’t poo on me!” :)

 
Claire

Claire says...

Can I just say that by this point I was having trouble keeping the camera still from laughing so much!

 

Make that a 3rd Cockatoo

Tue 15th November 2011

Then another one!!! I think Matt was doing very well at this point to hold them steady.

Matt

Matt says...

Okay no more please! I’m starting to look like a crazy bird man!

 
Claire

Claire says...

Suddenly Matt was standing with 3 Cockatoos on his arm. Too funny.
