G'day,

I am leaving for Australia on Saturday June 6th. Woo hoo!
I'll be gone for two months doing research on my next historical romance set in Australia 1700's.
I can't wait to drive through the Blue Mts. Maybe I will see a sexy Aussie cowboy with a stetson hat and long jacket like the Man from Snowy River. Lusty Drool Smilie

Chat to you all when I get back!

Thanks Shelley. I live in Florida where it is basically hot all year round. So I'm looking forward to the cold. She says now...once I'm there I am sure I will take it all back. LOL. :duh:

May was a little cold in Queensland so I'm sure the Blue Mountains are going to be even colder. And at the moment, here where I live, it's absolutely bucketing down rain. LOL

I'm good Lyn! I'm getting some reading done and I'm starting to clean out some clutter to go to the Goodwill (or the trash) to make more room. My son gets braces this coming Wednesday and then we might go see Harry Potter afterwards. We usually go to the midnight showing of it, but his appointment is early in the morning, so we decided not to do it this time. Oh, I have to tell you that I miss your pets. They are so sweet.

Hope you have fun on the rest of your vacation! :lovepounce:

I'm in Tasmania at the moment. It is gorgeous here. Still cold but the ocean breezes are very crisp and fresh. I got lost in a maze yesterday and had to get my daughter to lead me out. How embarassing. LOL.

I went to Australia for a couple of months this summer and caught a few snaps for you all. This is a sunset over looking the bay at Devonport, Tasmania.

Although it is summer in America it is winter in Australia and no place is colder than Cradle Moutain in Tassy. It rained constantly we were there. But somehow it added to the charm and appeal of this mystical place. This shot was taken inside my warm car. LOL.

Until next time, have an awesome day!

http://lynarmstrong.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/auz-family-099-300x168.jpgThis shot was taken one afternoon in Byron Bay, New South Wales. This small coatal town is known for its healthy lifestyle of orangic and vegan cafes and markets.
I hear Paul Hogan has a movie studio there. If you are in town, stop by Red Rose Realty on Byron Street. The owner is an amazing woman who donates a portion of her sales to different charities.

This is also shot in Byron Bay. On a path to the lighthouse. But be warned, this path is filled with health nuts who are willing to run you over if you get in their way. LOL.
That's what you get when you wake up early and go for a walk.
More pics coming soon. :0)
