Here are some photos of what we got up to in the school holidays. Dave was working, so the kids and I found things to do in Sydney. It was just the right combination of rest and adventure, and for once I didn't overschedule!
|we enjoyed some of our local parks|
|We visited the zoo and the National Maritime Museum...|
|...where there was an interesting exhibition about whales.|
|We went to Luna Park for a belated birthday celebration for Elsie (along with a friend from school).|
|We even managed to fit in a trip to the dentist. (That's our fabulous dentist in the shot!)|
|It was a prison for convicts and later a girls' reformatory...|
...and later again had an interesting industrial history as a ship-building yard. There were 'clue trails' for both aspects of the history, which the kids enjoyed.
|Plus, it has some beautiful views!|
We do live in a beautiful city! It was nice to spend some time enjoying it and seeing it with fresh eyes.
