|We were grateful that the house was large enough to accommodate the numbers, and we also became grateful that the food managed to be enough for the crowd! We have learned to take lots of pictures and how to smile!|
We visited, sang songs, ate, visited, heard sage advice from Elder and Sister, visited, ate, hugged, listened to piano solos, ate, visited and finally, said goodbye! But it was enjoyable.
|Some of the senior missionaries of the mission. We all have different assignments and have enjoyed getting to know one another. They have all sacrificed to be here and keep rigorous schedules helping, serving, and loving.|
|We love the Kookaburras!|
|On Saturday, we headed back to Paddington and we think this is "pizza down under". Whatever it means, we thought it was funny.|
The old buildings of Sydney are beautiful. We were able to visit with a nice lady from one of these row houses. She told us that one of them just sold for $940 thousand. They are two bedroom. We are always struck by the real estate, since that is what we work with and have learned about.
|We stopped to visit Centennial Park in South Sydney. We have heard of Black Cockatoos but had not seen them until now! Amazing!|
|The photographer needs a better telephoto lens to capture these magnificent creatures, but this is not a bad shot!|
In Cenntenial Park people can do many activities: walking, biking, jogging, yoga, horse riding, walking the dog, picnicking, casual football. It's such a large park there's room for thousands of people.
|Finding parking in Paddington is like finding parking in New York City. Where's my Mini Cooper when I need it? We found a spot on a very narrow dead end street and Elder worked his parking magic with Sister as guide and consultant.|
Ta Da!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We're in.
|We have only seen milliner shops in England but this is Paddington!|
|Maybe we should have read this sign before we went looking for parking... we ended up backing out of the narrow street.|
The perfect end to the perfect day - yummy chocolates and a room with a view!
|Our latest activity - put into the GPS any lookout nearby. We have found beautiful viewing spots and bushwalking trails.|
This trail is 1.3 K's from our home! Who knew??!
