Cockatoo Island & Garden Party Lunch with familyToday was our last full day in Sydney before we head off to Hawks Nest.
Alex, Enya & Brandon decided to go to Cockatoo Island for some photography time in the early morning. Cockatoo Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It played a pivotal role in Australia’s convict, shipbuilding and industrial history. While the weather was overcast so not as perfect as they would have liked, they did get some interesting photos.
Meanwhile I stayed back and helped with the preparations as John and Bev arranged a wonderful garden party lunch with extended family that we had met on prior visits. They have a wonderful backyard and so John set the tables up so we could all eat outside and Bev once again headed us up in the kitchen and created a feast of quiches, chips, salads, etc... Everyone brought something to add to the menu so we had plenty of food, dessert and great company once again. It was a beautiful afternoon and a special way to spend our last day in Sydney. Of course, we are immensely thankful and happy here :-)
