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.

 

Wonderful waves

Mon 26th December 2011

Boxing Day and time for a little trip to Hastings point – and we weren’t quite prepared for the view that awaited us!

Matt

Matt says...

There were some huge waves on Boxing day! Didn’t see any surfers out there, it was way too dangerous!

 
Claire

Claire says...

I could’ve sat and watched the ocean for hours. The cyclone really was playing havoc with the sea, but the affect was mesmerising to watch.

 

Wedge-tailed Eagle

Fri 23rd December 2011

Here I am holding a massive Wedge-tailed Eagle! We were allowed to hold him for a short while and bask in his magnificance.

Matt

Matt says...

That’s one huge bird! I want one! He can eat small unwanted children from around the area.

 
Claire

Claire says...

He was very heavy, I can’t imagine how tired the keepers must get holding these birds all day!

 

Stamp collector’s dream

Sat 17th December 2011

We stumbled upon this amazing stamp and coin shop in the laneways. It went on forever and housed thousands and thousands of stamps.

Matt

Matt says...

I’ve never seen a shop so big dedicated to selling collectable stamps. It was huge! There must be thousands of stamps from all over the world in there.

 
Claire

Claire says...

We couldn’t beleive the size of this place! It’s incredible to consider how many stamps they own.

 

Daddy lizard

Sat 1st October 2011

Ther e is one huge lizard who plods around the grassy area near our chalet. He likes the sun and he likes the bushes.

Matt

Matt says...

This was one big lizard! About three meters long! He didn’t like me much and ran off into the bushes. I decided to follow him in and managed to snap this photo before he bolted off again.

 
Claire

Claire says...

The first time I saw him, I should open-mouthed for about 2 minutes. He’s HUGE and not intimidated by our presence at all!
