Saturday Photo Hunt - Bridge

Join the Photo Hunt with tnchick

Our picture is of the Sydney Harbour Bridge as we were returning from our cruise in Sept last year. The bridge is spectacular and is known world wide. It is an icon here in Australia. My great grandfather helped build it. It opened in 1932. With a span of 503 metres, it is the 4th longest spanning arch bridge in the world!

Enjoy your weekend.

Dancing Divas are back

Well we had our first dance class last week - boy was it hot!! So I have decided to do tap now as well - that will be interesting!! But should help me lose a few of those kilos I need to shed. Here are some snaps from our first class. The quality is a bit ordinary - I need a new camera!

Keep checking back for regular updates and have a great weekend.
