A visit to the city…to meet some friends from the US ~ Part 1

Last week we met up with a lovely couple from Oregon, America, and a wonderful lady who has recently moved to Sydney. We all met on Facebook originally and when Randy told me he and his wife Carol were heading to Australia (staying with their friend, Shirley) we were very keen to meet up with them. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at Circular Quay, before heading to the Royal Botanical Garden and finally ending up at Woolloomooloo. A wonderful afternoon was had by all and we were treated with plenty of sunshine and beauty all around. Enjoy these photos!

Woodcroft Lake

The weather was perfect for a stroll around the lake last Saturday, so that is what we did. Woodcroft Lake is only a 5 minute drive from our home and it was just what the doctor ordered after a busy week at work.

Wisteria Fete ~ Part 2

We took so many photographs at the Wisteria Fete a few weeks ago, that we had enough for another week; here they are 🙂
