School Holidays

I am in Sydney at the moment, staying with Mum and Dad for the week. Richard and I spent last weekend here in Sydney being "tourists". We enjoyed visiting the zoo for the day on Saturday. It was drizzly and cool , which was a fine temperature to explore the zoo for us Canberrans!

The view of the city was rather obscured by the mist and drizzle.

I was game to pat the crocodile!

On Sunday we joined two of Richard's brothers, Andrew and John, at a local cafe for breakfast. After that we headed off on the train to Sydney Harbour once more. This time we took John with us. It was a beautiful sunny but cool day and the harbour was sparkling. Watson's Bay, Bondi Beach, Bondi Junction and a ferry ride to Darling Harbour were on the agenda. What a great day! We saw Sydney Harbour at it's best.

Last week I enjoyed the time off school, catching up with friends for coffees and lunches.

The notable thing that happened on September 19 was our solar panels were finally turned on, after a huge 18 month delay. This was very exciting and it is fascinating to watch the meters that show us how the sun is silently make electricity.
