Forest Friendships...

While we were living in The Netherlands last year we had many days exploring the surrounding forests on our bikes and on foot.
One day the kids decided they wanted to make a photo story about three different animals who are all a little lost in the forest and who one day meet each other and become friends.  Even though they all speak different languages they are able to find other ways to communicate to one another through signs,  and by offering kindness and love.  They explore together, read and drink tea.  At the end of the day they have forgotten they were lost and play happily ever after.

How We Spotted Some Whales...

last thursday the kids and I did something a bit special together.  we caught a bus to Manly, a fast cat to Circular Quay and from there we set off on a 4 hour whale watching adventure.  after an hour or so of searching we spot some beautiful humpback whales spraying water high into the air.  such amazing animals to see when they surface, so graceful gliding along leaving their oily trail on the surface of the ocean.  thank you lovely creatures and we wish you a warm and safe journey to the north.
