Home At Last

We finally made it home from Australia. We had a wonderful time with our family and all their friends. Here are some random pictures from our trip. The one above is of a grass tree and a termite mound. Those are amazing looking trees.

This is the beach near our daughter's home. What a luxury to be able to walk to the beach in under five minutes. The warm weather was nice too, since it was very cold and stormy here at home.

These are some amazing huge rocks near Glen Innis, NSW in Australia. Thanks again, Joe, for driving us to see these stones and the other sights on the way to Glen Innis.

Here is a tree proving that plants are stronger than stones!

We stopped at this waterfall on the way to Glenn Innis. It was about 10 degrees cooler at the bottom of the falls than it was back in Red Rock near the ocean.
We had a wonderful trip. We caught up with some old friends and met some new ones. My only complaint is that it wasn't quite long enough.

Welcome home Joyce! I was just thinking about you this afternoon and wondered when you'd be back.

Glad you had a nice trip! Loved your pictures!!

Enjoyed your photos. I suppose you have seen Gloria Loughman's ( Australian quilter ) beautiful quilts/ wall hangings of the grass tree? ( one in purples I particularly love.)

Ya, there is not a place like home in this world. After a long travel, when we reached home, we got a lot of relaxation and rest. Then we feel really fantastic.
