Return to Sydney

It seems that our trip has come full circle as we spend our last days in Sydney, the city in which we started our amazing journey. And this time we made it to the Sydney Harbour!!

The famous Opera House.

Just the two of us.

Here we are in front of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Enjoying a brew at the Opera House Bar, with some amazing views.

Here's what it looks like when the sun goes down.


I love the night life!

See you all soon!

Our Last Days in Adelaide

Hello Everyone,

During our last few days in Adelaide we were treated to a weekend of adventures including a day out to Granite Island where we went on a late night penguin tour, and a day spent in Port Adelaide where we went on a dolphin cruise. We would like to send a special shout out to Keith and Lynne for letting us stay with them for the duration of our time in Australia. We had a great time and will miss you both dearly!!!

While we were waiting for the penguin tour to start we waited at the cafe overlooking the bay. All of a sudden we heard splashes and caught this photo of a seal lion.

Here are two of the penguins from the tour. We were not allowed to take flash photography because the penguins eyes are extremely sensitive to bright light. Hence the red flashlight.

We only got a few good pictures of the penguins due to the flash restrictions.

The next day, we went on a Bush Walk through one of Keith and Lynne's favourite trails.

The views were spectacular.

The falls.

We were very lucky because usually, there is no water flowing through these falls. But because of all of the rain we had during our trip to Kangaroo Island, there was plenty of water to go around!


We call this a "Disney Bird" because it looks like a bird you would see in Snow White or Cinderella.

Lookin' good!

One of the many great views.

After our hike, we headed down to Port Adelaide where we enjoyed pancakes and a dolphin cruise!

They even opened the draw bridge for us!

Finally, some dolphins! A mother and her baby.

A great day!

Kangaroo Island

Good day mates,

Here are the pictures from our recent trip to the splendid Kangaroo Island. Enjoy!

Preparing to partake in a pelican feeding frenzy. Luckily, no Nicole's were injured during the event.


If you were a pelican (or seagull), this was the man of the hour.

Here is one of many lighthouses on the island, located in the Flinder's Chase National Park.

"Remarkable Rocks".

Sean was also pretty remarkable (written by Sean).

Check out the view!

Thankfully Lynne snapped a picture of the two of us.

The sun was very bright!

We became news anchors for the Bedrock News.

While Keith and Lynne watched from their Flinstone couch.

Really big sand dunes!

Dinner... actually it is a whale skeleton.

We spotted seals... at Seal Bay.


And a baby or shall I say pup.

Coming in after a brisk swim.

Big Daddy.
