A Winter Holiday … Boating


The next part of our holiday was spent with Nick’s parents on their boat in Sydney Harbour.  A total treat to share quality time together whilst experiencing new waters and amazing scenery.  Barb and John are cruising the east coast of Australia over the winter months before returning home to Tasmania at Christmas time.

We stayed on the boat for two nights and explored different playgrounds and parks during the day.  We also enjoyed a cruise out through the heads, back into the harbour and under the bridge, which was a fantastic experience.

Barb and John even offered to babysit one night whilst Nick and I zipped off across the bay in the dingy to Doyles for dinner after our peeps were tucked up in bed.   We brushed the sand off our feet and donned our fancy footwear before entering this classic seafood establishment in Watson’s Bay.

We had a wonderful time on the water and Poppy and James loved hanging out with their grandparents.  xx
