Sydney, Australia

 

This week our Weekend Road Trip takes us to Sydney, Australia. Catch up on your sleep because the journey is a fifteen hour plane ride from San Francisco. First stop, the Sydney Opera House.

    Excellent.

    I loved The Bone Garden as well. Funny thing was that I couldn’t find my copy of it before I left for the conference, so I wound up buying a second copy in order to have one for her to sign.

    So now I own two copies. One to lend and one to keep.

    Gee, some people can be a real smarty-pants. You listening, Ms. McCabe? 🙂

    Hey, sounds like you had a really nice time at the SF conference. Tess is great, isn’t she? I had a chance to speak with her at a book signing at the Harvard Coop in Cambridge, Ma. a few weeks ago. The cool thing about that meeting was that I got to sign one of my books for her. Actually, we swapped books – mine for The Bone Garden. By the way, I think that’s my favorite of all her books.

    They make you wonder how evolutionary choices evolved into those particular critters. After all, there’s similar terrain all over the world. Yet, each continent seems to have animals unique to it. Anyway, thank you for the trip to Oz.

    I would love to get to Australia. I’m not sure, though, about seeing the Sydney Opera House…again. My dad, a (to put it mildly) avid photographer, showed us the slide show from the boat around the harbor, when he must have clicked 100 times to get the Opera House from EVERY possible viewpoint.

    The animals are amazing. And I just read a historical mystery where they’re still BUILDING that bridge.

    Cool pictures. I was lucky enough to get to Australia years ago (too many, now that I try to remember exactly when – but let’s just say it was pre-digital camera!) and these pictures are a great reminder of the trip.

    We did a tour of half the continent before my husband had to be at a meeting in Sydney. I even climbed Ayers Rock (which was still allowed–told you it was a long time ago).
