A stroll down memory lane

During the week, during my blog break, I had a couple of hours without the girls. I decided it was the perfect time to get out into the sunshine and take a long walk. I went down to a harbourside reserve that I used to spend heaps of time at while I was growing up. Many summer nights were spent here eating BBQ chook and rolls, swimming and watching the sun set. I have so many good memories of this place. We watched New Year's Eve fireworks, watched the Bicentenary celebrations here, Naval celebrations, Australia Day and had parties and many gatherings. One summer I think we ate dinner almost every night with my aunt and cousins. 

While walking down memory lane, I took some photos. Funny how everything looks the same, if not a little smaller. Join me as I get all nostalgic.

Not a bad view.
I remember standing on this rock with my cousin when I was about 9 or 10 and he telling about nuclear warfare, I was scared for years afterwards.
The world's best view from a swimming pool.
We used to carol outside this house on Christmas Eve and the occupants would throw chocolates.
We slept here the night before the Bicentenary to bags our spot.
