I don’t have much to say about today, other than the majority of the day was spent packing more and more boxes.
This photo was taken just around the corner from where I live. This pelican was about to land….to meet up with its friends – a couple of floating pelican’s on the lagoon.
Manly, NSW, Sydney, Australia
Today, we headed up to our new home, the first time we’ve been in it, since it was sold to us. We did a lot of measuring up and spent an hour discovering things. I am going to need to get an Australian gardening book, as there are so many plants in the garden, most of them, I don’t know what they are. We have a huge gum tree in the back garden and 2 large trees in the garden, which instantly make me happy!
We can’t wait to move now… 2 weeks today!!
This photo was taken back in Manly, there was plenty of sheet lightning to be seen and it was a rather dramatic storm, that I was fortunate to look at indoors.
USA v Australia Men’s Water Polo – Budgy Smugglers Water Polo ByThe Sea
Today was such a good day as we were fortunate to get tickets for the Budgy Smugglers Water Polo By The Sea match, which took place at Bondi Beach Sydney, NSW, Australia.
It was a friendly match, aiming to promote the sport. The match was held at the iconic pool Icebergs, water polo is never usually played here, so this was something special.
The match was against the men’s USA team and Australia won 10 – 7. With a crowd of over 2000 spectators including various Australian celebrities, it really was a fantastic event. Even more so, as the crowd also had kite surfers on the ocean entertaining them too!
