I was posting my Down Under vacation highlights on Facebook every day, and Schelly noted that we were in Sydney. Schelly was there visiting her cousins, Bob and Di, saw my Facebook note, and commented on it, asking if we could get together. I commented back that we were at the Hotel Mercure and just as I returned to the room, Schelly was on the phone. We quickly agreed to meet at the ferry terminal in Sydney for a trip to Manly Beach on Saturday morning.
Here is Linda, Di, Schelly, and Bob in front of the Manly wharf terminal:
I wish I had a photo of us smiling...because we did a lot of smiling and laughing and carrying on, as geneabloggers do when they get together. I think we talked about genealogy for the whole ferry trip over and back (about 30 minutes), missing the beautiful scenery along Sydney Harbour. We also talked all the way through lunch. It was only two plus hours, but it was a fun two plus hours!
I made two videos of Schelly using my Flip video camera but the files are too large to post here. I'll try to put one on Facebook and provide a link later.
