By The Lake

The day after Boxing Day all the family went to my Uncle Daves boatshed on the lake at Narrabeen. It was a celebration of a couple of things. My cousin Pete and his daughter Holly we here from NZ for a visit. The next day was Hollys 4th bithday and it's about the only time in the year nearly the whole family is together.
It was a drizzily day but we didn't let it dampen our fun.
All the kids brought their new wheels to ride on the bike path across the lane. They have soooo much energy. My Aunty Diana put on a great spread for lunch. After lunch quite a few of us went for a walk into the rainforest area just up from where we were. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere.

Di Di came all the way from Bemboka ( about 6 hrs drive) to join in the festivities

So as you can see the weather didn't bother us at all.
This was the end of our stay in Sydney. We headed off back to our little country home feeling relaxed and happy to have seen the family for a few days.
Cheers Leanne
