Sydney,Sydney and Sydney!
I have just returned from my 3rd trip to Sydney in 5 weeks, and now look forward to NOT going again till at least September, for Fathers' Day. It's fantastic catching up with friends and family, and this is always the reason for my visits, BUT the crush of people generally,and the noise and pace of city life, is something I have left way,way behind.
The occasion of my 2nd visit was to celebrate my parents' 60th wedding anniversary. They were married at Arncliffe Methodist Church( now St Mark's Coptic Church) on 10th January,1948. The first picture shows the wedding party on that happy day, and the picture below shows the same wedding party on January 12th,2008. The only person missing from the photo is my dad's elder brother, Arthur, who died several years ago. We were so thrilled to have so many friends of Mum and Dad's able to come and celebrate with them.
