In the Middle

December 17:  In the middle of my stay in Australia, Tim and I started planning what we were going to do when he arrived here.  In a few short weeks, we managed to visit Sydney, Cairns, and Canberra, with side trips to the Blue Mountains and Bondi Beach.  We also saw a show at the Sydney Opera House and snorkeled among the corals around Fitzroy Island and at the Great Barrier Reef.  I will post more details on some of what we did later, but for those of you who are following this blog regularly, I wanted to post something.  Check back shortly for more updates, including pages about our trip to Cairns and about Art in the ACT.
