firstly, by way of explanation, "OZ" is a kiwi way of saying 'australia'
our trip to see tara and her fam for 8 days during the recent school holidays was simply wonderful, and contained a little and a lot of everything...
an early morning start
friendship and joy
a second birthday!
did i say beaches already?
how about jumping at beaches...
and some snorkelling
then there were the wharves
the local council allows houses to build RIGHT to the water, so there are any number of private wharves, but plenty of public ones too
perfect for jumping off...
then there was our day trip to sydney
this involved a lot of ANTICIPATION
did you know there are ONE MILLION 56 THOUSAND TILES
on the roof of the sydney opera house?
and here's just one of them!
chocolates galore at the lindt cafe
our week was full of cute dogs too
and chocolate pizza
WHAT holiday is complete without chocolate pizza?
and big knickers
i almost forgot about the big knickers
did i mention the beaches already?
and more joy (for the jumping of)
and ice skating
i almost forgot about the ice skating
and the scary pelicans
was there ever a FREAKIER bird?
i don't know how big their brains are, but they're smart enough to wait by the fish filleting table at the beach and wait for the leftovers to wash out
watching one pelican try to carry off the remains of an entire fish without all the other pelicans stealing it off him was entertaining. freaky but entertaining
then it was time to say farewell
and thank goodness for skype :)
