Sydney Road Trip

We had a fantastic weekend in Sydney. Here are some pictures which should work on a web album slideshow if you click the link.

We stopped at Gary and Christine's on Friday night to get a bit of a start and borrowed Nathan for the weekend. Neither he or Sport Boy had been to Sydney before. They had a great time together.

Upon arrival at the caravan park in Sydney I discovered that I'd left the tent poles behind!! That lead to some improvisation to erect the tent. No problems on the first night but not so good when a massive storm hit Sydney the next day! We came home to a flattened but thankfully not flooded tent. More improvisation followed and the kids survived the night. I slept in the car!

The exhibition, "OutPost" a huge collection of street art displayed on Cockatoo Island was brilliant. We all loved it and were very glad we made the long trip to see it.

We crossed the Harbour Bridge, walked around the Rocks, went to Bondi, saw The Gap (at night) and took a drive to Cronulla in a packed visit to Australia's biggest city.

Enroute, up and back, we had brief stops at Violet Town, Wodonga, Gundagai andBenalla where we had a brief rendezvous with Mum/Nan and sister Vicki.

The car ran smoothly throughout and I was glad I'd had the brakes and oil leak fixed before we left.
