A Carousel Adventure

Well, I'm back! After spending some time at the beach for Easter, we made an unexpected trip to Sydney...Ian was working, but Abby and I went along for a holiday...Georgia decided to stay home.

No doubt about it...Sydney is a beautiful city, with amazing restaurants and views to die for...

Plenty of entertainment along Circular Quay...where we caught ferries to see all the sights. Isn't the Opera House amazing? I dared Abby to sing on the steps, but she wouldn't be in it!

Just behind the Sydney Opera House is Government House, and we wandered through the beautiful gardens.

After all the walking, Abby decided to have a rest in the room, so Ian and I checked out this incredible bar nearby...after which, we decided to catch a ferry to Darling Harbour....

Um, Ian, are you sure this is the right ferry?

Whoops! Wrong ferry...we ended up in Manly! "Never mind", said I, "It shall be an adventure!" And it was...we happened upon a beautiful seafood restaurant, and enjoyed a most delicious meal...

The next night, we caught the ferry across the harbour to Luna Park, where I agreed to accompany Abby on some rides (I drew the short straw!) What happens when you get older? I used to love going on rides, now they just make me feel sick, and hurt my back and neck!

Can you spot us with our hands in the air?

Oooh, Abby, that ferris wheel is awfully high!

I am seriously woosy when it comes to heights! Oh My God, I can't believe I was up this high...don't look down! Upside was the views of Sydney Harbour from the top of the ferris wheel were amazing!

The next day Ian was busy working, so Abby and I took a bus to the Paddington Market...

Goodbye Sydney - you are a beautiful city, but it's nice to be home, even though it is freezing here and we have lit our open fire!

I also want to thank all of you for your lovely comments about my last mixed media are all very kind, and I can't wait to get back into some art - lots of new ideas and inspiration from Sydney.
