Cape Byron Adventure

Have you ever seen a Real Live Lighthouse?!? We have!

We went to Cape Byron in New South Wales. This lighthouse, the Most Easterly Lighthouse in Australia, is located on the Most Easterly Point on the Mainland.

It’s such a pretty lighthouse, and it was late in the afternoon, so the light made it glow.

Aren't the scrolls cute? ๐Ÿ™‚

On the way to the lighthouse, there are a few houses. They’re SO cute, and I took lots of photos. One thing about them that I liked was the amount of chimneys. Four! We thought it was very extravagant! We don’t have a fireplace in our house, so they’re a bit of a novelty. ๐Ÿ™‚

four chimneys - lucky people!

This is the view we had, approaching the lighthouse. I like the bit at the front, the way it’s made to look like a castle. ๐Ÿ™‚

This one’s taken from the bottom of the steps…

this is the 'castle' part at the bottom

I tried to take a picture of the door – it was so beautiful! ย But I couldn’t get rid of the reflection.

I just like this one. ๐Ÿ™‚

I couldn’t get rid of my shadow in this picture, so I decided to let it make itself useful, for once. ๐Ÿ™‚ The other, smaller shadow beside me is Miss 11, who wouldn’t get out of the photo!!

I don't know what this is for- any clues?

Daddy has a picture of himself, holding the top of the Taj Mahal. It looked fun, so I tried it with the lighthouse. It worked!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

After I’d taken this picture we had to go home, and everyone was cranky at me for making them wait while I took the last ones.

It was a lot of fun. ๐Ÿ™‚



Isn’t this a creative letterbox? One of the things I like best about holidays is all the interesting mailboxes we see! ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Pigs Might Fly

Recently we went for a drive, and saw this mailbox. It’s the second pig mailbox I’ve seen so far. ๐Ÿ™‚

On holidays we go for very long drives, and oftenย see interesting letterboxes. I like to take pictures of them and post them here as a tribute to the creativity of rural Aussies. ๐Ÿ™‚

Astronomy, an Acrostic

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night.

Stars are sealed up by Him, and the sun riseth not at His command.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handiwork.

Revelation speaks of a star called Wormwood.

O, Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

Numbering the stars, He calleth them all by their names.

Orion, Arcturus, and Pleiades were designed by Him who created wonders without number.

Moon; appointed by Him for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

Ye praise Him, sun and moon: praise Him, all ye stars of light!
