First off - on the right hand side of my blog you will see a wonderful project link that Mrs Twins has started. I showed you my squares here. If your on Flickr, look up Mrs Twins and you can see the blankets she has already put together. Four of my squares are in the third blanket which has been christened "Alice in Sunshineland", so named for Mrs Twins mother whose favourite colours were purple and green. One of the participants created the link - Molly is wonderful! And Karin aan de haak had an idea, which has started a challenge. The group is very friendly and it is not even a week old, but is snowballing very, very fast.
BTW - SIBOL is an acronymn for "Sunshine International Blankets of Love" cause they are full of sunshiney colour, the squares have come from around the world, and the blankets are made with love for the elderly.
So if anyone is interested in crocheting 6" sqares for the elderly, please click and join in.
Now back to Australia
I noticed a advertisement in the Adsense on the right hand side of my blog and I thought that is what I should show you.
Now I have shown you this photo before, not a good one, as its just on nightfall and it was very humid and overcast
I went digging in my photo archives. You know the old-fashioned ones where you can hold it in your hand, on photo paper and .......
Way, way back in Ancient History ...............
alright then not that far back, only 9 years ago actually my photo of the Bridge (otherwise known as Sydney Harbour Bridge).
It was about this time of year that
I had views of this .....
Yep, thats me n hubby way back when.
We are on the western side of the bridge and behind us is the southern part of the city.
Things you might like to know -
Very fasionable suits - one size fits most
We are all hooked together
You need to have a chainy thing around glasses.
And on that day we all needed sunglasses!!!!
You are given a brief history of Sydney and the Bridge
Can't take camera's in case they are dropped. They do take photos as souvenirs for yourself and your group.
You get a certificate at the end to commemorate your achievement
Traffic below - cars, buses, trains and boats
You start the on the eastern side, cross to the western side in the middle, then back down the western side.
IT IS STEEP, fitness is an issue (which I had, but I scrambled up)
And the walk is timed, not leisurely. You do get to stop at certain points for explainations - I used that time too get my breath back. VERY HARD WORK for me!!!!!
You are 134 metres (146 1/2 yards) above Sydney Harbour
We had views from the Pacific Ocean to the Blue Mountains.
The tour we went on lasted 3 1/2 hours
It was a BLAST !!!
If you get to come to Sydney, you really should put it on your "must-do" or Bucket List.
We did the climb with D2 & D3 and their respective boyfriends. D1 and her now hubby had already done the climb a little earlier in the year.
And as a footnote, we are finally back to slightly cooler weather. Luckily we did not cop the rain or storms that QLD & VIC have. Hope your all 'high n dry' there.
Have a great weekend
Bye for now
