Carol and David have found an apartment in Sydney after moving from London. It is in Vaucluse, an eastern suburb, which stretches from the harbour to the ocean. Carol took me to their apartment first before going onto the baby shower.
It has a beautiful view of the ocean from their balcony, lounge and bedroom.
There is a park in front and walkways going all the way along the coastline.
Even though we were expected at the party soon. I couldn't resist going for a walk up to the headland. As I looked back I could see their apartment block. (the one in front)
Then I looked south. It was a magic view. I didn't have time to walk up to the next headland where the view north is even more spectacular. So I can't wait to visit again and do some serious walking.
Then it was off to Joanne's house at Bronte Beach another beautiful suburb ten minutes south from here.
Just before the boys went off to have fun together, I took this shot of our two girls with their boys. It is such fun to see them all together after they have been living in different countries for so long.
Sonya's sister in law, Kate, flew up from Melbourne as a surprise to be at the shower. Sonya had tears she was so happy to see her. Kate bought gifts from Sonya's in laws, who live in Melbourne.
Joanne's house has a nice balcony overlooking the sea. It was quite breezy and cool. Beautiful white roses decorated the party. There was lots of food and lovely friends too.
Grandma to be had a good time .
Sonya opened lots of charming gifts and then it was time for me to say goodbye and Carol took me back to the airport (in my little car that they have borrowed) and I flew back to Brisbane. Now I must go to bed ready for work tomorrow. What a great day!
