An Australian Wooly Adventure

Day 1: we arrived in Australia this morning and …….no sign of sheep yet! However, we did see some interesting architecture and the Harbour:

A train tour of the Royal Botanic Garden let us see the plant life that is so very different here. Very lush and green.

And some architecture with the garden. This was for housing tropical plants.

  1. Yeah, Jackie! Keep this blog posts coming. We can travel vicariously!

  2. The blog looks great! The photos are wonderful! Wish we were there. Can’t wait for the sheep. Fibershed was full of upbeat, informed, creative people. It was rainy and windy, enjoy the sunshine there. Dona

    • Cool here this AM but no rain. Keep it there – we need it. Doesn’t look they need it right here. I guess there are bad storms well north of us.
