On the way to Sydney - NSW

sunny 26 °C

Having left Sydney a few weeks before, I was keen to go back for the VIVID Light Festival which lived up to be as amazing as the advertising showed!
Nick was heading that way from the same town at the same time, and gave me a lift. It was a great chance to explore the outer suburbs of Sydney rather than passing them by on a train.
First stop Brooklyn

The photo below of the Cabbage Tree palm grove with the Hwkesbury River was taken in 1927.

It's amazing to see how high those trees have grown!

Adventures included a little off-roading at Buludelah

stopping for vital re-fuel ... of pies...

and managing a rather hairy turn around avoiding the sheer drop when the gate up the track was locked

Before we left Sydney there was one last chance to admire the Botanical Gardens, and the local Cockatoos!

On the way back up we stopped at West Head, to admire the views of the surrounding area

and to Barren Joey (aka Palm Beach)
Somewhere down there on the water front was my home for the night

We weren't the only ones making the most of the stunning back drop, like this photo shoot

I was lucky enough to spend the night at the family's beautiful house at Palm Beach (aka Home & Away!)
