Our bike trip to the saltwater pools at Bronte beach on New Years Day with our hosts Gemma and Chris.
Great vantage point from which to see Sydney’s magnificent firework display. Thanks Peter for his photographic advice.
Camping out waiting for the fireworks to begin.
Did you see what he wrote in the sky? Unbelievable that this pilot dived the plane under the Harbour Bridge – this got squeals of delight from boys!
Excellent food supplied by Fred, the Ex-Masterchef of Marlene Dietrich!
Tractor spotting and whizzing around in the farm buggy were a big Brucey bonus for the boys – and Julie and Martin!
A return visit 10 years later for Martin to a WWOOFing farm and endless new fun for the boys discovering the newly born calf and peacocks.
All washed and clean and drying on the line.
Building a gigantic sandcastle with Papa by the river at Forster.
