Australia - Day 7: Figure Eight Pools, Aussie Meat Pies, and Coogee Beach...

Our last day in Australia we tried to make the most of our time. We started out with a sunrise hike near our condo and then had breakfast on our balcony while listening to the waves. We then headed up the coast to Royal National park where we hiked down to the figure eight pools which both Adam and I loved! So pretty and a completely new kind of beauty for both of us. We loved the pools and the green mossy formations and meeting two new friends from Brazil.  We then went into town where we finally tried Aussie Meat pies (delicious!) and then drove back up to Sydney to stay at an airbnb we had rented on Coogee beach. We ended the night with a sunset hike near our rental. What an absolutely fantastic trip where beautiful things were seen and beautiful memories were made! A huge thank you to my Mom Rita Harrison for watching my littles for me and for my awesome niece for giving her breaks! We truly are so blessed! What an amazing world God has created!

Australia - Day 6: Three Sisters, Wentworth Falls, Stanwell Tops, & Sea Cliff Bridge

Day six in Australia took us out for a sunrise hike to the Three Sisters monument. Then we headed back to our hotel for breakfast (where we finally tried Vegemite!) The rest of the day we spent hiking in the blue mountains around Wentworth Falls which was HEAVENLY! Then we drove along the coast down to Stanwell Tops and the Sea Cliff Bridge before arriving at our hotel on the beach in Austinmer. We spent the rest of the evening enjoying the sunset while eating fish and chips and watching Crocodile Dundee in our room! ha ha!

Australia - Day 5: Morning Sunrise, Sydney Temple, Windy Ridge Gardens & The Blue Mountains

Day five in Australia we again took advantage of a beautiful sunrise where Adam got a little too close to the waters edge and ended up soaked by a wave! ha ha. We then had a nice breakfast at "Harrison's cafe" (seemed appropriate considering my maiden name), and then headed over to Avoca and Copacabana beach! Gorgeous! From there we went and stopped at the Sydney temple (it was closed) and then headed over to the Blue Mountains where we were able to visit the Windy Ridge Gardens and then went and hiked around Pulpit Rock. We ended the day with a sunset hike to Katoomba falls and the The Three Sisters lookout! Another amazing day!
