HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY FROM DOWN UNDER
It is Valentine's Day in Australia today so we wanted to wish each of you a Happy Valentine's Day.
We enjoyed breakfast at the Club Floor Lounge and kept it simple with cereal and fruit. As we have mentioned there is a large selection of hot food items including eggs and lot of breads and pastries to choose from along with other items such as yogurt. In the spirit of Valentine's Day a candy heart was on each plate on the tables. The views from the lounge are spectacular and it is a terrific way to begin the day.
There was a Princess Ship at Circular Quay and the Oceania Regatta Cruise Ship was making its way over to White Bay.
Pior to this trip we only used Uber one-time which was in Miami and it is on this trip that we are making a lot of use of this service. Once downstairs we used the Uber App and in a few minutes the car arrived for the drive over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to where the family lives. Drive time varies by direction and time of day and has ranged from fifteen to approximately thirty minutes.
When we arrived to the families place they had Valentine's cards and candy for us and we also had cards for everyone. Later in the day Anne Marie went with Jennifer, Andre and Emma to a toy store where Andre and Emma each got to pick out a toy for themselves as our Valentine's gift for them. Emma selected a doll and Andre selected a Lego kit.
After dropping off Andre at school we drove to Balmoral Reserve and Beach and enjoyed a nice walk and also stopped so that Emma could play at a playground. After a few hours we went for a nice lunch at a French Cafe.
Anne Marie visited Andre's school in the afternoon while Keith stayed at the apartment.
The original plan was to have a picnic dinner at the beach. However, today turned out to be one of those very hot days with the high approaching 100 degrees Fahrenheit so we enjoyed the picnic lunch at the dining room table at the families home. The bird in one of the photos was on the balcony this morning.
