Backyard sprinkler...

Yummy Summer Time!

Boxing Day with the cousins

and heaps of water...

We collected an arsenal of water powered weapons and when the guns broke we dished out the cups. The kids had so much fun. You can't beat a sprinkler in the back yard....

New Road for my old Photos......

I am working on a new plan for my photography. I don't want my images to always be the same as everyone else so I'm going outside the box. If I get a good response I'd like to sell them at the markets over Christmas.

What do you all think???

Wentworth Falls

A few weeks ago just before Pierre got stuck back into study, we had a little weekend away at Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains. We stayed at a place called Silvermere in their Coachmans Cottage. Just Devine.....

I think this is a Saffron Flower

Lightsaber Wars in the garden

Time for a soak in the tub...

We went for a walk into Wentworth Falls
and I fell in love with is garage door

Of course we went to the Three Sister the kids really found this fantastic.
Bailey got busted (by us) for spitting over the rail.... Is this a right of passage?

Jenolan Caves

We were going to stay here and I'm really glad we didn't. Apparently it is one of the most haunted places in Australia.
The Caves however were beautiful. Again the kids really loved the Cave tour, we thought they might have been scared in the dark but they loved it. Even when the lights went out by accident and we were left in the dark for 5 minutes.

When the tour came to an end, our guide said we should go down to the lake and look for the platapus. (I thought "as if we'll see a platapus") After 5 minutes Ebony calls out "there it is!"

Pierre and I were gob smacked

Vietnam 1993

The building on the headland

This is the Hotel we stayed in, present day "Dinh Bảo Đại".
I didn't take any photos of it as I was so limited with my film, a very tight budget. I love digital!

This group of photos was taken on my Minolta 9000 on "Luck Film" I must have bought in Vietnam. They are pretty poor quality.

They were taken in and round Nha Trang where we stayed in the workers quarters, in an old hotel called "Dinh Bảo Đại" (see above photos) The hotel was old French Provincial style and they made the best Iced Caffe ever. Served on the terrace over looking the South China Sea.
