The theme for the Sticky Fingers Gallery this week is holidays.
Holidays, you say? I remember those. Holidays were those jolly things we did before we had children!
The photographs I have chosen are from our last holiday, which was also our honeymoon. We went to the South Island of New Zealand and New South Wales and Queensland in Austrralia.
Here are a few highlights:
Wildlife spotting at Oamaru, NZ.
Lake Pukaki with Mount Cook in the distance, NZ.
The Church of the Good Shepherd at Lake Tekapo, NZ.
Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia. I used to be able to see this from my office window. *sigh*
Sydney Opera House. My favourite building in the world.
Flying foxes in Sydney Botanical Gardens.
Sunset at Tambourine Mountain, Australia.
Finally a personal highlight, although not a great photograph. We stayed at Tangalooma on Moreton Island in Australia. Form there we took an eco boat tour and saw dolphins, a hammerhead shark and numerous other sea-life. Then something amazing happened, we found a pod of 54 dugongs (like manatees). They are beautiful, gentle, endangered creatures and quite possibly my favourite animal. It was incredible to see them in the wild. That evening we hand-fed wild dolphins that swim up to the beach at Tangalooma. That was pretty cool too.
