This is a long running friendly feud between my almost-SIL and his favourite NRL team, the Penrith Panthers and my favourite team - South Sydney Rabbitohs. And we beat them BIG time!!!!
Ok, now down to business
One of the most annoying things I find about the amazing digitial cameras - the fact that you usually don't print them to look at them!!!!.
For a couple of months now I have wanted to share some photos with you, but 3 home moves, 6 computers and 3 digital cameras later, I could not find where they were. I was sure I saved them. I know I never printed them. But where were they?????
Finally found a disc over the weekend that I never look at - it is labelled photos, but nothing else, and yes there they were
So what am I going to show you????
Well it happened in the end of July 2004. A surprise for a wedding anniversary.
A weekend away in one of our favourite areas of NSW - The Hunter Valley. I did a post of one trip here
Yes we checked out our favourite wineries and yes the favourite food shops. But this time hubby had organised something special.
Unfortunately it involved a extremely early start, can't remember exactly what time now, but I can tell you it was pitch black and would be for another 2 hours after we arrived at the destination. Please remember that this is our winter time and while the Hunter Valley has beautiful spring, summers and autumns, the temperature can drop quite low (well for us anyway :-P) here.
So please don't be surprised at some of the photos and our faces - early hour remember.
We saw this .......
and we got views like this
yes that is sunrise
and a little of The Great Dividing Range
and just to prove it was us ☺
this was just prior to becoming airborne
A Bucket List moment
They like everyone to take part, so you are requested to help with the inflation of the ballon and the packing up at the end of the trip. Lucky for me I was responsible for the camera, as the balloon looks very heavy.
Inflating the balloon
and packing it up
We then went back to their office/base and had a wonderful breakfast and a glass of champagne to celebrate.
