Tom arrived in Sydney on the rainiest September day in 120 years. Shown here is a wintery Manly beach. Only appealing to the serious surfing crowd.
A passionfruit concoction from the incredible Max Brenner's. This is a chain of 10 crazy chocolate-fest stores in Australia (originally from Israel) which is just starting to open up in the US. If you haven't visited one, drop everything, grab your kids and proceed directly to Union Square in NYC to find delicacies like Banana Split waffles with warm chocolate sauce or hot Java chocolate with orange zest.
Andrew and Posie's opposite cats. Short hair and looooooong hair.
The view from the wedding venue of Sam and Jen overlooking the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park. Finn lays claim to them there hills as his great great great great great grandfather was the one who first discovered them.
Rehearsal dinner for the wedding.
A colorful Andrew (Finn's great uncle) the day of the wedding who some say looks just like...
...his brother Chris (Finn's grandfather). The matching glasses sure help.
The groom and bride being
accosted by some short lady congratulated by Posie!
Frank, Sammy and Dean. This is DEFINITELY not going to turn out well...
A local landmark.
The Sydney skyline at night.
Finn's cousins once removed (??) Rohan and Toby.
Gotcha! Toby and his mum Emma, with her mum Posie.
The bride and the groom post wedding and much more relaxed. The venue was the second best named restaurant Tom noticed in Sydney "Food and Plonk". Best name award goes to an Indian restaurant called "Holy Cow".
Afer an entire week of crappy, rainy weather, as Tom leaves the beautiful north shore beaches sun up.
Finn's weather in NJ though is lovely. Here is the view of the ocean from his palacial home at the shore...Casa Naggar.
The first rule of Beach Club is never let go of your orange star. And Finn followed that rule, except for the few times the star went out to sea (saved by him mommy).
Finn and grandmother Janny having too much fun.
More Finn and star.
Finn and star and sea! The perfect tubes of the Atlantic Ocean, NJ.
Off to chase the sea gulls (Guppie style).
