A DARING DAUGHTER

Some people have the best office Christmas Parties. My daughter went on a Sydney harbour cruise on  "Southern Swan". An authentic wooden tall ship built in the 1850's style of Danish oak.

Guess what she did next?

  3. Only with a harness on would I climb up there. What a beautiful ship. I'd love to do that. With some seasick pills in me.

  4. :-) Looks like fun! And the only thing that surprises me is that you weren't there to climb up there with her.

  6. Geez ! she is a very brave girl ! What a nice and original Christmas party ! I don't see nothing of Christmas yet, although the hotel is apparently booked for Christmas. It's celebrated here too, you don't need to be a Christian for having a Christmas tree, lol !
    We had a bad adventure yesterday, it's written on my blog tomorrow !

  7. Oh my gosh she is very brave!!! What a great way to have a Christmas party.

    Thanks for stopping by on my George Washington post. Can't say I am a fan of Pork Pies, but my mother loved them too.

  8. That is awesome! Beats having flaccid turkey fillet at a grungy pub any day!

  9. The ship is beautiful. I'm envious of your daughter for having the opportunity to sail on her, but I'm not sure I would have been brave enough to climb the mast the way she did.

  10. No surprise to me! Just like her mother, never fazed - right?
    Sure is a novel way to have the office Christmas party - good for her.
    I bet you and TOH are "green with envy" - ha ha!
    Oh to have been on that ship on Tuesday - sigh! Instead of the sweat box up here.
    Yep, I'm green with envy also.
    Cheers

  12. That is a nice present from your daughter for you, specially the last photo! Scary, I always wondered how people could climb in those tall ships. Well this way.

  13. I think that perhaps Carol-Ann is as adventerous as her Mama was when she was young. Oh yeah, you just climbed a bridge on your birthday. :) It's in her genes!
    (I would have been scared to pieces.)

  14. I don't really have a fear of heights, well I thought I didn't. I feel strange after looking at the photos.

  17. What fun that must have been! I did the same once in the Caribbean, although I looked nowhere near as glamorous and competent as your daughter.

  28. It was sooo much fun! I was fully harnessed to the mast and climbing up was exhilarating! A definite highlight of the year, I'd say. That along with climbing the bridge with you and Sonya!

    Great Post Mum

  29. It's a beauty of a sailing vessel Diane and I've taken many pictures of it when I've been in Sydney but.........that's where the adventure ends for moi haha! I do so love the adventurous spirit of , I was going to say the young, but I'm sure there are many adventurous 'people of a certain age' out there also. Fabulous images of your daughter's trip.
