Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Temporarily home


G'day my followers!
A few of my pictures I have to share: First  a Koala in the wild.. Isn't he adorable? and yes so were the kangaroos. I learned my way around pretty good with a MyKi pass on the tram.
Finally caught up with jet lag, laundry, Moved my daughter Pj and her two sons Peyton an Mason from Yakima Washington to Home Sweet Home here at Blue Sky Farm. We took the boys to their new school today and registered them for first day tomorrow. It will be a wonderful school for them.. Small and their teachers were very welcoming to them.
Just unpacked  my Australia clothing and nearly time to pack for Kauai . Leaving Portland next Wednesday with my sister in law for 10 days.
Australia was beautiful. Melbourne is the perfect city with a tram system to get around town easily.
I visited the Botanical Gardens and took over 500 pictures as well as a week on Hamilton Island on the Eastern side of the continent, snorkeled in the ocean and enjoyed the time with my daughter Nancy.
 Our ocean view was breathtaking  as was the entire Great Barrier Reef.  Now I as I switch back to holiday mode and prepare for Kauai,  I know I am a lucky gal and extremely grateful to be able to see these beautiful places in the midst of the beginning of winter here in Oregon.
I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday and the things you are grateful for.. More when I return  Dec 1st.    Aloha!

Okay, you forgot me in your suitcase your last trip and now I know you are leaving me behind again! But with that, means you have to have double fun!!!

I'm so excited for you that your daughter and grandsons have moved to K Falls! It is absolutely the greatest to have family close.

Enjoy your trip!!!!
