Australia 2014 Day 1+2

Day 1 and 2 of my trip to Sydney was spent in the best way possible: relaxing with my sister Ingrid and my niece Olivia at her gorgeous home in Bilgola, Australia.IMG_0989

For our first dinner, we made a recipe by Donna Hay, with prawns, balmain bugs (a crustacean native to Australia) and scallops. I wanted to eat as many of the local ingredients as possible while I was down here. As you may know, I love food and I love to cook. It’s going to be hard to leave for many reasons, including all the wonderful items that aren’t available in the US.

Oh how I wish I could wake up to this view every morning. With the time change, I was the first to wake up for the first couple of days and it was so nice to sit and have a cup of coffee and read my book on the porch. It’s not often you can find quiet time to yourself with such a beautiful view!

I was lucky enough to have a beautiful lorikeet land on the railing as I was reading my book. Thankfully I had my camera next to me, and I was able to snap a few photographs. As I was taking his or her pictures, another bird landed on the railing. They were chatting and flirting, trying to get closer to each other but nervous because I was in-between them. They were so cute!

No words necessary for her cuteness.

Olivia is taking swim lessons now. It’s a necessary education when you live so close to the water!

We love our coffee, and Olivia loves her babychino!
