Backing Up

It’s been nearly a month since I returned from the Craft Cruise from Sydney, Australia, to Auckland, New Zealand, and I have yet to post any photos. It’s been a whirlwind of teaching and catching up since I returned and some things just had to wait.

Today, I want to show you some images from the first excursion we took in Sydney, Australia.

Here I am in the beautiful Blue Mountains forgetting all about my broken arm.

Here’s another photo of the Blue Mountains.

And another photo taken while riding an aerial tram. The waterfalls were amazing.

From the Blue Mountains, we visited a wildlife park, where I got to pet a koala! I’m the one with open eyes — koalas sleep about 20 hours a day. There must be opiates in those eucalyptus leaves they eat. Hmm, that might be better than hydrocodone….

I also saw tiny penguins and lots of kangaroos.
