Carolyn and I spent most of January lolling on the beach in Australia and visiting the Hanley clan at their digs in the Pyrmont section of Sydney. Mostly, we got to spend time with the two grandkids, Helena, age 6, and Ava, age 4.
Our funnest day was at Luna Park, an amusement park located in North Sydney near the Harbor Bridge. We had a great day riding all the rides and visiting the fun house.
Here’s a shot of Helena, who is fearless, getting ready to ascend the super scary Waterfall of Death ride. That’s not its real name but it’s a pretty good description.
There was other cool stuff, too, like those funny mirrors amusement parks have and a whirly thing that kids love because it spins until everyone else falls off.
There were two gals in pink polka dot costumes so naturally we had to get pictures of them with the kids.
And finally, here’s a photo of the girls in the yard at the condo where we stayed. What a great trip. We need to do this again real soon!
