Last Day in Sydney

DSCN2223It has been so fun going through all of our photos from our stay in Australia.  I can’t believe we packed so much in!  On our last day in Sydney, we walked and explored what felt like every inch.  The Royal Botanic Gardens were really gorgeous!  I could see why so many people were there (tourists and locals alike) just relaxing on the grass.  We hunted for hours in the gardens looking for the humongous fruit bats I had seen during my last visit years ago.  No luck.  Sad!  We did get a kick out of watching the eels in the main pond though.  It was just too weird to see these long serpent creatures patrolling the edges!  So long Australia.  Until next time, I’ll be missing you.

Lunch at Balboa Park

Balboa Park

My mom came down to visit me in San Diego so we decided to spend an afternoon at Balboa Park.  It was an amazingly gorgeous day spent wandering around the botanical gardens and lunching at El Prado.  Check out some of these beautiful photos taken by my beautiful mommy.
