Last week Rydog and I went to the Botanical Gardens and spent some time in the park. It is a very beautiful place, with a vast expansion and variety of gardens, picturesque scenery and a lovely atmosphere especially since it is by the harbour. Here are some pictures and a very short video (only twenty seconds) of some sights around the park and the harbour. I thought it would be nice to show you some iconic imagery of Sydney city.













I also receieved the Happy 101 award from the lovely Nina at Ballerina's Closet Obsession. Thank you very much, it is always such a wonderful surprise and an honour to receieve awards and I definately suggest that you check out Nina's blog if you haven't done so already.


The recipient must:
1. List ten things that make you happy
2. Pass it on to ten bloggers

Ten things that make me happy:
Please refer to my last post

I am passing this onto:

I'm sorry I haven't posted for awhile and that I'm behind in commenting. I have been very busy lately catching up with a friend who is only in Sydney for a short time and working a couple of days. I will visit all your blogs in the next few days.
