Fooling around this summer

Our son spent the past semester studying in Australia. In late June, my husband and I met him there, spent time in Sydney and Uluru, did some diving on the Great Barrier Reef and then flew to Bali with Ian for 5 days. It was the trip of a lifetime.
Below: Visit to the Gallery of New South Wales. Check out Australian artist, Tom Roberts who painted in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Amazing draftsman.
