Back from Holidays

I'm back from a fabulous holiday - here is a small sample of photos, all I have had time to edit so far, and they are not necessarily in the proper order. We had to take photos in front of the bridge of course - brilliant sunshine and not too cold! Ebenezer church with the schoolmaster's house alongside - built 2oo years ago, I know that is not long for you Europeans and North Americans, but a very long time for Australia!

All dressed up for a re-enactment of the landing at Ebenezer from the Hawkesbury river.

The kids got sick of all the photo shoots so did what small children do!!

The view from where we were staying at Marks Point on Lake Macquarie - a truly glorious place about four and a half times the size of Sydney Harbour.

Here it is at sunset - no wonder Bill's cousin does not ever want to leave. The big disadvantage is the 60 odd steps (very uneven) from the road down to the water!!!
I haven't had time to look at any blogs yet, nor reply to the many emails which came in while I was away, but thanks to all of you who commented on my blog about the plates. I want to find the time to look at all the blogs to see some of the other plates, and catch up on all the news.
I have a son and two grandchildren staying here at present so there is not much spare time, lovely to have the company however. The one sting in the tail - there always has to be something - is that we have a very sick dog, waiting on needle biopsy results but the prognosis does not look very hopeful. Jack has been such a very important part of the family for nearly eight years, we are just hoping for the best.
More photos later when I have had time to edit a few more.


  1. Wonderful holiday photos - glad you had a good time. Enjoy your family visit and we will all cross our fingers for your poor old dog. It's horrid when they get old and sick. We've had to say goodbye too many times.

  2. Glad you have had such a lovely holiday. Sorry about your dog - it is the downside of owning animals - so do hope it is not as bad as you fear.

  3. Welcome back Robin and fingers crossed for Jack.
