Thanks CRguy for adding these pictures for me, that is much appreciated :)

From top to bottom: Ayers Rock (Uluru), Sidney Opera House where the sail are changed to green for St Patrick Day, and the Opera House just before,
the last two pictures were taken in the Blue Mountains just south of Sidney.

Ayers Rock is in the Northern Territories and I took a3 excursion there which was amazing. We did a base walk around Uluru that is 9km (just over 5 miles). I have to
say I walked my BUTT off there haha.

It's been almost 10 months since Ron's passing and some days, not often, it is still so raw, butt I try not to linger there to long as that is not what he would have wanted me to do. I feel that he has helped and guided me along with my trip and my job. I heart does not feel as heavy as it use to as thing more about what we had that what we could have had.

It was hard when on Facebook the other day they brought up a memory of a picture I had posted of flowers Ron had given me on our anniversary. It would have been 18 years
together :( That was a bump in the road to moving forward right.

Well folks have a wonderful day, off to work I go :)

Fantastic photos . Thanks for giving us all an update . Frenchie sure added to our lives here but I suspect he would want us all to enjoy all the gifts life has to offer . That was his style and I am so glad you got to experience that trip and you are finding your feet .
Take special care,

I like that statement, Diane, b/c not only is it a positive, it seems to me it falls in line w/Ron's view/assessment (though he may not have voiced it) in making his decision on how he wanted to live & what was right for him.

Those are some beautiful pics from your trip! Good therapy to get away, reunite w/your friend I would hope.

Congrats on your new job @ Costco. How is that going?

Nice to see you check in.
Best Wishes
