CAMELLIA GARDENS SUTHERLAND SHIRE 1977

My Story Continued:

(I am still scanning old photos and renovating photo albums as well as publishing them here to make a blog book  for my girls to keep.)

We visited my parents in Sydney for Christmas 1976 and stayed on into the new year 1977. Mum and Dad took us to the Camellia Gardens for the girls to have a play and feed the ducks.

With Granddad

With Grandma

Sonya makes a friend


We visited grandma's friends and the girls had a swim in their pool with grandma.

 We went to the local park at Loftus where I used to play as a kid.




The girls liked playing at grandma's house.

  6. Enjoyed seeing these family memories, Diane. We have a lot of family photos as well, but have not scanned them. Many are in photo albums, which sadly people do not seem to look at now.

  10. They both were such sweet dolls ! I can imagine that a visit to grandma was wonderful for them. I loved to spent my holidays with my grandparents, my parents dropped me off and went somwhere else ! My father found that I was too young to come with them !
