My Flying Boat experience and a Supermarket experience!

As a late Christmas present from our son and his wife, we went on a very exciting trip, today. The journey started at Rose Bay, to have a trip on  Flying boat. I had never been on a "small" plane before and was slight frightened, l have to admit.


Alfie didn't look to certain , either!


Today the company, had started the renovation work on the landing , so we had to go to the flying boat, by a small boat! Added to the adventure!


I was allowed to sit in the co-pilot's seat, which was rather exciting. 
And so the adventure starts!



Up, up and away!









Wow .... what sight.


Glad l knew where the exits were!







A steady hand on the control.


I had the most exciting time ... l want to go again. That was an amazing experience.
Phew! so much excitement in one day, best l have a decaf coffee !


Later in the day we went to Woollies, the supermarket my daughter-in-law works for. England could learn a thing or two about presentation, from these guys.







And of course Felix agrees, too!!

The 2012 London Olympics ... Seems such a long time ago now! They had the spears, or some of them from the amazing Olympic Torch and a video about how it was all mad. Brilliant .



Think the design of this bike, the Penny Farthing is beautiful. I would not have like to have to ride it though! 


Then there were the models ... brillant.


Then there were all the amazing bones!



My husband and gorgeous daughter ... thanks for sharing the day with me. :)
