Sydney Harbour is an amazing place to be, day or night.

On Boxing Day (the day after Christmas), some of Alan's friends and colleagues from RNS Hospital joined us to send off the Sydney-Hobart and Volvo Ocean Race fleet, though dodging the spectator fleet (bottom center) was entertainment aplenty!  The haze in the air is from the Sydney bushfires.

We met up with Melissa & Ron of  Ever After near Melbourne for a driving trip down the Great Ocean Road to Adelaide, where we all joined Barb & Lyn of Strega for a tour of South Australia's Barossa Valley wine country.  (We had a wonderful time, you guys, except my face ached for a week from all the laughing!)
