Sydney Opera House, Sydney, Australia       Adventures in Oz       Great Ocean Road

Almost three years ago I made plans to go to Australia, but at the last minute my plans fell through. I swore at that time that someday I would make it to Australia and that someday has arrived! I've purchased an Epson PhotoPC digital camera to take photos of our trip and I'll be posting them by dialing into Microsoft Network sites in Australia. I hope that you'll enjoy following our adventures in the Land of Oz and I promise our pictures are more exciting than your neighbor's last vacation slide show. You'll find an itinerary of our trip below with links to each day's page. Each of the pages has thumbprint (small) images of our pictures. I've also added a Photo Library for those of you who just want to see the pictures. There are 80 thumbprint images in all so be patient while the Photo Library is loading. To see the full image on any of the pages click on the thumbprint image. Thanks for visiting!

These pages are dedicated to the memory of my daughter, Sydney Faith. They are also dedicated to my daughter Alexandra Elaine who survied a six year fight against Leukemia.

Thanks to Charlie and Rivian Bass whose Trip Down Under! was the inspiration for this site.

Where am I today???
