Sydney Australia by Emily McGuire

Yesterday I went to Sydney for the day. I didn’t venture from Circular Quay and around Opera House (I had things to do in that area). I took some photos to share though.
Sydney Harbour is beautiful. No matter how many times I have seen it (and it has been a lot), I am still amazed by how pretty it is. I also love the ferries – Circular Quay is obviously a great place to sit and watch them. And of course, who could forget the Sydney Harbour bridge?

I hope you enjoy the photos below.

Bay and Ocean – Australia. By Emily McGuire

I recently went to Tanilba Bay in Port Stephens (NSW, Australia) and I took a few photos. I will be sharing those today. I also took some photos of Newcastle Beach area – which is where I seem to go whenever I feel sad (or mad or any other emotion you can think of).
I am late posting these this week as I have had major computer issues, but I have sorted that all out, thankfully.
Hope you enjoy the photos and do go over to my blog and check it out. http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress..com – – until next time….

Small town – New South Wales, Australia by Emily McGuire

Morpeth is a town near Maitland in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales. It is known for its jazz festivals, quirky shops and gorgeous old buildings. It is situated near the Hunter River and I spent many days on the river at Morpeth with my family on our boat. It brings back great memories to go back there to visit. Today I went there and took a few photos to share. I hope you enjoy them and a big happy new year to everyone!
Check out my photos on my blog: http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress.com

IMG_1732 Normally Morpeth is bustling with people, but I went late in the day, so it was very quiet (quiet enough to stand in the middle of the road to take this photo)

IMG_1708 This building (barn) is not technically IN Morpeth, but I still love it. I have driven past it about two million times (I am rounding up) and I have ALWAYS ALWAYS wanted to stop and take a photo but I never got around to it, until today.

IMG_1717-2 I seem to find myself drawn to old, gorgeous houses in this area. They are so magnificent.. They do not build them like this any more, sadly.

IMG_1721  Again with the old fashioned things you never see any more. A red phone box. It doesn’t seem to have a phone in it (I didn’t actually look that close inside). But it is just beautiful. (I feel I may live in the wrong era!)

Goodbye Australia by Emily McGuire

I am about to embark on a massive adventure – packing up all my things (cats included) and moving to the other side of the world. I do believe this will be my last blog post from Australia. So I am sharing with you the one thing I will miss the most about this place – – the beach. I know I have shared beach photos before, but these ones aren’t the same ones 🙂

All photos were taken in either Newcastle or Forster in New South Wales and there is one from Hervey Bay in Queensland. I hope you enjoy and do visit my personal blog – http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress.com ( which I shall be updating in the coming weeks – and on a very regular basis)

Catherine Hill Bay, Australia by Emily McGuire

I am a little late posting this week – I had a million things going on and I wasn’t sure in the end if I had some photos to share, but I do *Phew* .

Recently I went to a place called Catherine Hill Bay (Or “Catho” to the locals – I will stick to saying “Catherine Hill Bay” myself). I was stunned by the white sand and the big waves (which are not too visible in the photos I am about to share). I could see why people love the place so much and I will go back back when I have more time to take more photos.

I hope you enjoy the photos and please go and look at my blog http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress.com  to see more of my photos.
