Dad's visit

My dad and his wife came to visit us for 2 weeks. It was short but packed full with lots of sight seeing, experiencing the Australian bush lands with all the amazing bird life and Eucalyptus trees and catching up on together time. He is so blessed to have such good health at 80!!

I'll share some of our outings in a few installments.

Scotland Island  - I first got to know of Scotland Island when I read a book of Susan Duncan, an Australian author who lives at Lovett Bay in the area. It is part of Sydney Northern Beaches and more specific Pittwater. The link is to big to post here.

Their mode of transport is a little 'tinny' with an outboard engine or the public ferry. Would be great as a weekender but not for a permanent dwelling, specially if one has kids. There are quite a few families living there who love the life style.

I think this is the authors' house who lives on the mainland opposite Scotland Island. This area is part of the Kuring-gai Chase National Park. Wildlife in abundance.

Wow, it is lovely there, I can see why some people want to live there permanently! So glad you could see your dad!
