Goodbye to Australia …Hello South Pacific!

Well folks over the last 7-8 months, I have taken you along on our Australian journey. The land down under was a place I never imagined I would ever get to, in fact it wasn’t even on our radar until a few years ago. Now, I can’t wait to get back and we shall one day.  We have been blessed to travel to many different places in this great big world. We have more places planned in the next year as well and I am sure you will enjoy coming along. Yet,  Australia was so much more than I expected it would be. I am not quite sure what I expected, but from the moment we landed in Sydney, I was in awe of everything this land had to offer us. Our journey along the Gold Coast was fabulous. We had been to Sydney,

  1. Gorgeous image, I have to ask – what is the cause of that wonderful white ‘fog/steam’ in the center right region of the fourth image from the bottom. I love the entire image. Thanks for sharing your travels, and for stopping by and liking “Snow, Sleds, and Memories” 🙂

    1. Thanks… the white you refer to in the picture is actually a storm that was coming toward me and passing through the valley. The way the sun was reflecting through the clouds gave it that misty/fog look. A lucky capture! About 10 minutes later we were in the pouring rain…
