Memories of Sydney summer

Week 1 of Autumn, the days are officially getting shorter, and it is becoming harder to take decent photos after work. At least the crazy windy, rainy weather we’ve been having lately will start to make sense!

Absence, they say, makes the heart grow fonder. I’m already becoming nostalgic about the few long, hot, humid days we had in late February. In this vein, here are some photos that will speak to me of summer … until next summer rolls around.

Sydney Festival, a month-long highlight of every January. This year, we had a giant rubber duck sail (float?) into Darling Harbour. We had fun with this oversized bath tub floatie on a glorious January day.

And a few snaps of our iconic Harbour and the Harbour Bridge. On one of those overcast, temperamental-crazy summer days…

Here’s to the autumn harvest, Easter, winter stews and Christmas in July. (and yes, that’s a tiny pineapple in the photo below)

      Thanks! The city is so photogenic, I just need to remember to take my little camera out with me.

      You lived in Sydney? I think it’s a great place to call home, but I’m biased.
