Monday, 26 Dec 2016   Boxing Day

Margaret worked with one of the girls on her English for a few hours this morning.

Today some of the Senior Missionaries hired a boat and went out on the Sydney Harbour to watch the Sydney to Hobart sail boat race start.  We then parked the boat in a cove and some of the grandkids of one of the missionary pair swam for awhile.  The rest of us sat and napped or talked.  A nice relaxing afternoon.

The Opera House from our departure point

Just to prove that Mike was really on the boat with Margaret. Sydney CBD (city business district) in the background

The race is about to begin

Boats racing to keep up with the sailing ships as they head out through the North & South Points on their way to Hobart, Tasmania

Bombs away

yes you can swim in Sydney Harbour. 

Sigh.  Time to leave the cove and go back to the real world.
