|Elder Shim from the city drew this great picture of President and Sister Howes. The missionaries love having their picture taken with it.|
|Elder Feil had the camera and just walked around snapping pictures. Missionaries are always prepared for the camera and ready to smile! They all make me laugh!|
|The serious looks on these missionaries are funny since they knew Elder Feil was right there taking their picture!|
|We now have 6 missionaries from French Polynesia. I thought Tahiti was it's own country - I am learning Geography as well!|
We went across the river to see the Roos at the golf course. They hang around while the golfers play through! Balls landed right next to them and they didn't flinch.
|The lazy golfers - including the one in the pouch!|
|The gallery at the golf course!|
|Notice the one nursing - some never want to grow up!|
The price wasn't right for golfing so this is only imaginary! Elder Feil never misses an opportunity to practice his swing!
On the next ferry we saw this unusual sight - a dual wheel Chevy pickup truck with the driver on the left side! Elder had a nice chat with him and we couldn't resist a picture.
|The Hawkesbury River is a recreational paradise.|
|Australia's oldest Church and school building|
|Attentive Parishoners! These benches were so small and straight that no one could easily sleep during the sermon.|
|Elder Williams - the new preacher in town!|
|This little store and a sweet little old lady selling her own canned goods and homemade items. They were also offering Devonshire Tea. I jumped on the freshly made lemon curd.|
|This is called the Mt. Gibralter lookout in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. It is a beautiful area with rolling hills, farms, and wineries.|
|Here is the one building public school of Kangaloon. We also drove through East Kangaloon. They were about 5 k's apart with only cows in between. These rock walls reminded us of England.|
|This is the town of Robertson where they filmed the movie "Babe". Apparently this Big Potato is also famous - we are not sure for what and we can't imagine how they made this sculpture. One of life's mysteries.|
|They plant trees in these incredibly straight rows. We think they mark the property lines and also function as wind breaks. Don't quote us on that!|
|King of the Road - right in front of our car so we had to stop and get a picture. Only about a foot long but he took on the car and we went around. He owned the road! We are thinking he is a Blue Tongue Lizard but not sure.|
The road was just wide enough for 2 cars, but the scenery was spectacular and it was a wonderful Sunday afternoon drive.
We are praying for each of you and missing all of you at this Christmas time. We have had some opportunities to teach gospel principles to visitors at the Art and Light Show at the Temple grounds. We are grateful to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. He lives and loves each of us. He knows our needs and challenges and will carry our burdens. We want to leave you with this quote from the Prophet, Thomas S. Monson. "May we all make the journey to Bethlehem in spirit, taking with us a tender, caring heart as our gift to the Savior."
