From Airlie Beach to Sydney

So after walking through the rain on Friday afternoon at Airlie Beach, Dad and I boarded a plane en route to Sydney. We got into Sydney about 8:00 pm, and were at the warm confines of Sydney Bed and Breakfast by 9:00 pm.

Saturday was chock full of activities. We climbed the Sydney Harbor Bridge, toured Circular Quay, and walked through the Royal Botanical Gardens. By lunch time we had walked at least six or seven miles. Then we hopped on a boat and rode around Sydney Harbor. I have never seen so many sail boats in one place. It was amazing. After our two hour harbor tour we went shopping. Dad needed to buy Mom something, so we swallowed our pride and walked around Pitt Street and The Queen Victoria Building. It really wasn’t that bad. =)

After our shopping adventure we went back to the hotel, freshened up, and ate dinner at Doyle’s Fish Restaurant at Circular Quay. We had no difficulty going to bed Saturday evening. On Sunday we walked around the Rocks area, and made a few purchases at the Rocks Market. Then at 11:00 am, I said goodbye to Dad, and he boarded a taxi en route to the airport. A few hours later, I took my own taxi, and now I am back in Adelaide. (For photos: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=71436&l=c8940&id=565915710).

We really had a great trip. It was such a blessing to be able to spend time with Dad. I am really looking forward to heading home in December to get to see more of my family. Being away makes you appreciate your family even more. In the mean time, however, I’ve got a few more sermons to preach.

    Hi Brian! Your Dad is safely at home but suffering from pretty bad jet lag. He has his days and nights mixed up..imagine that! I really enjoyed seeing the video and pictures last night. You two guys really had quite the trip! I am happy for you! Love, MOM

    Great was your obdience to Jesus’ command to ‘spread the gospel.’ Johanthan Edwards preaches that your journey here on earth is “your journey to heaven!!!” Keep that thought in mind as you enjoy ‘your journey’.love you/pop.
