ACT/NSW/VIC Holiday - Day 7

After the family left last night, Aleks took Adam and Sarah back to his house so we sat up pretty late with just Luke chatting for a while. Anyway that gave us a late start the next day.
It rained all night and looked like raining all day so our plans to go to Jamberoo Action Park were put off, much to the kids disapointment.

So we decided to go hang-dogging in Wollongong instead. Aleks turned up about 11am and off we went.

These walls are a lot higher than the pics show, the kids were very brave doing this. Only Adam and Sarah decided to have a go.

After hang dogging we went to Wollongong harbour for a late lunch.

 After lunch we went to Westfield shopping centre in Warrrawong so the kids could spend some holiday money Nanny Gelston gave them, plus we bought a little camping table for the adults :)

We went back to camp and we all had a nice chicken and salad tea. During a break in the rain we went for a walk down to the beach for a look.

Afterwards we spent the night watching all our photos on the laptop, had a few drinks then headed to bed hoping the rain would stop for tomorrow. It was actually a nice night spent with all the kids.

ACT/NSW/VIC Holiday - Day 6

Bit of a late start again today. We went to poppy Aleks' around 10am to get the kids and headed up to the Illawarra Fly Tree Top Walk up near Minnamurra Rain Forest.
We had some lunch, paid our $80 and off we went ;)

Wombats get special attention!

Not long into the walk and Michelle broke one of her thongs. So being the gentleman I am, I gave her my crocs and walked around using her broken, very lady looking thongs! lol

The walk is high up above the tree's, not for anyone that's scared of heights. I don't particularly like heights but felt safe enough most of time, although climbing the tower got my butterflies happening!

It wasnt the clearest of days but the photos make it look a lot smoggier than it actually was for some reason.

Yep we climbed this tower.

And just some general pics of the walk.

One of my Favourite pics of us together :)

AFter the Fly walk, which was great, we had a coffee and then went on the short drive around to Carrington Falls for a look.

A couple of the beautiful girls in my life :) xxx

After the Falls we went back down to the coast and went to Stocklands shopping centre in Shellharbour, bought myself a rash vest and some groceries.
We then went back to camp to prepare some food as the whole family was coming over to our camp grounds for a barby.

Boys Club!
