BLOWN AWAY

It was a wet, windy and wild day in Sydney yesterday when we had arranged to have lunch with blogger, Julie from 'Sydney Eye' and 'Plumbing the Deeps'.
We have met before when Julie organised a bloggers get together over a year ago and now we are real friends.
Recently, Julie has been through a very worrying time coping with her daughter's serious illness so it was good to be able too give her a real hug.

 After a delightful lunch at 'Blue Orange' in Bondi, we said goodbye. Julie caught a bus and we walked home fighting the gale force winds.

This young man was having fun leaning on the wind. It was freezing cold and we wrapped our coats tighter and hurried home.

Later that evening we had dinner with Fox

  9. This so reminds me of East London in South Africa, the waves and the wind, so lovely. Glad you got to spend some time there.

    And to answer your question, it's a canon eos 450d. It's so pretty!

  13. Brrr -- but that leaning into the wind photo is fabulous! Lovely to get to see your (now) real-life friend. And perfect to end your day with your fine-dining friend! He's adorable.

    (And is he old enough to wonder where his sunny warm weather went?)
