Australian Adventure – Day 25 – New Year’s Eve

Today we had a bit of a rest day and only went out for a drive in the late afternoon.  The thing that has impressed me most about Australia is all the trees.  Everywhere we go trees line the streets, there are huge trees in all the parks and shade is always easy to find.   In general Australians are conservation conscious.  They look after the environment, recycling is a way of life and one hardly sees litter anywhere.

Besides trees there is not lack of rivers, lakes and sea.   So to find a pleasant place where you can sit on a park bench, take a walk, throw a line in the water to catch a fish or have a swim is not at all difficult.

After exploring and we stopped at a British Fish ‘n Chips place in Warners Bay and our meal at plastic tables on the pavement.   The view was to die for and it was just great fun eating with our fingers as we watched the passing parade!   We then went home to watch the count down to 2014 on TV.  I doubt thought that we will make it to midnight as we have already seen the 9 o’clock Sydney family fireworks which was spectacular!

  1. Now that’s what I call a holiday. Eating Fish & Chips on the pavement. Their fish & chips is so good especially if they make it in beer batter. Yummy. You have had a wonderful experience. Saw Sydney’s Fire works a few minutes ago wonderful. A Happy New Year to you all.
