Sunrise on the canal

Thu 29th December 2011

We were up early today to head back to Sydney but there was time to take one last picture of this gorgeous sunrise.

I had to get up at 5:20am to get this photo, but it was worth it! Lovely sunrise!

They get the best of both worlds here in Pottsville. A stunning sunset and sunrise.

 

Christmas Day treat

Sun 25th December 2011

It’s our first Christmas in Australia! Yay! This morning we took a short trip to Pottsville Beach which is minutes from Min’s Grandparents place.

Well this is a different view compared to my usual Christmas. Walking along the beach on the 25th of December, it certainly didn’t feel like Christmas! Stunning beaches all along the east of Australia. Beach for as far as the eye could see!

Claire says...

This beach was deserted. The waves were 2 or 3 metres high too, the result of the Cyclone off the East Coast of Australia. Walking on the beach? The best Christmas pressie ever!

 

Remembrance Day

Fri 11th November 2011

We walked down to Martin Place for today’s Remembrance Day service for Australia’s War veterans and their families.

Matt says...

This is the very impressive war memorial in the heart of Sydney. It’s so big it even has an exhibition centre inside. Was interesting to walk around it for an hour or so.

Claire says...

The service was lovely, but we bet the streets of Sydney weren’t as packed as London’s would have been.
