Grand adventure......

last week I set off on a grand adventure..........cars, planes, trains, ferries, cruise liners and the whole lot in reverse.........
It meant driving to the nearest airport an effort in itself......had to go the night before after work.........blew a tyre on the way.............thanks to a lovely farmer who heard the noise and came to help me change my tyre.........
A relo dropped me off early to the airport............
the countryside is so dry..........
love seeing the clouds........they look so soft and fluffy.........

A very different approach to the city this time............
Yep Sydney Harbour.............snapped this photo on the train coming around past Circular Quay Station.........the Sydney Harbour Bridge...........a  cruise liner was in there too........
A short ferry ride............
And here was my cruiser liner.................Noordam..........
I had a invitation from the Cancer Council to go to a special lunch............
It was hosted on the "Noordam" a Holland America Cruise ship..........
they support several cancer organisations around the world and every cruise has an opportunity for everyone to participate in Cruise for a Cause.........
they handed over a cheque with a nice donation to the Cancer Council...........
OMG it was very ornate........I've never been on a cruise ship ever so it was very exciting..............
looking down a few floors..........gorgeous stairs and the carpet............
I'm a farm girl nothing like this at my place.........
silver service......4 course meal.............OMG it was amazing watching them work...........nothing was a trouble........
Entree...........the food was sooooooo delicious.............
I got to meet Heather..........she is the ambassadoor for March Charge this year.....shes only 93.........a spring chicken........competes in Masters games too..........if only I am that well at her age.............she was lovely..........
got in trouble for taking these pics...........something about a customs area but I still don't understand............
A huge ship...........
A view of ANZAC Bridge while i enjoyed lunch............
And to finished the day I made a new besty............Meena is another fundraiser and she was lovely......She does a biggest morning tea at her workplace......
 she has lots of people working there...........
we hit it of while waiting to board the ship.........
&&&&&
I'm doing March Charge once again...........If anyone wants to sponsor me or walk with me that would be great but I will do another post about that soon..............
Walked 7kms this morning.........
Anyway my adventure continued last week and I didn't fly home............I flew north.............but you will have to read the next post about that..........
Catch you later......
