SUDDENLY SYDNEY

I interrupt the USA Adventure with an up to date post.
Our daughter, Sonya, SIL Bernie and little Fox have returned to Sydney from LA for seven weeks. Bernie has been asked to host another series for Channel 7, which is paying all their travel and accommodation expenses. So naturally we had to come to Sydney to see them and our other two, Carol and David as well. We are staying at Bondi Beach, a famous Sydney beachside suburb.It is crowded with tourists in summer but now, in winter, it is left to its itinerant cosmopolitan population.

 Mummy takes me to the park every day and I love it.


 I especially like Grossvati pushing me high.

 Hey look mummy stairs for me to climb.

 While I drag mummy and grandma up and down the stairs until they are pooped, Grossvati enjoys ......

    It ain't that cold!!!
    The surf looks great and no crowds, you could do your "whale whoops" all by yourself! ha ha.
    Have you lost all your spirit of adventuresome youth??? C'mon, next Bondi photo, on with the red speedoes and hit the waves!
    Show young Fox how "Grossvati" does it.

  3. Fox is cuter than ever. He looks as if he has enough energy to keep several adults on their toes. I'm sure you will enjoy the time they are back in Australia with you.

  11. He is a cutie, fun for you to have him close again. Bondi Beach looks a bit grey in winter. I never can imagine Australia in winter.

  12. Diane, Fox has grown so much and is absolutely adorable.
    We now have a GAP store don't we?
    Enjoy your time spent with family and also frequenting Bondi Beach.

  13. He is so cute! And I'm so jealous of your cool, watery, windy weather. I kind of cool off looking at Bill's hair blow in the wind. Two more months. Sometimes I totally hate this state.

  14. Mom used to scold me for eating the peas I picked right out of the pod. She wanted me to put the pod with the peas inside in the pan so we'd have enough to eat. I liked them, then, better right out of the pod than I did after she had cooked them.

    I like the photos in this post and that bench is nice too.

  16. You must be thrilled at their unexpected visit. I too find it hard to envisage Bondi Beach so chilly- looking and windswept. It looks more like Yorkshire's Scarborough!
