Snakes and Lizards on Sunday

The parents of one of Adam's mates told us of The Snakeman who puts on a show at La Perouse on Botany Bay every Sunday so we decided to check it out.

The Cann family has been putting on reptile shows here for the last 80 years.

This guy kept staring at Adam. Must have liked his orange shirt!

Bare Island was a hit with the kids - rocks to climb, fish to poke at, starfish to save, and fellow Canadians to chat with!

Very picturesque place for wedding photos - one of the four parties drove up in style - 4 old Jags!

This guard dog was a pussy cat!

Another wonderful day in Sydney!

Some roo on the barbie!

We went to the Fomin's on Friday for dinner. Nick and Mara cooked up a feast including some kangaroo! Not sure if any other country eats their national animal - one that's even in their coat of arms!

Charlee and Alyssa hanging out!

City to Surf encore

No, we didn't run the City to Surf again. Once in a lifetime is enough. We just got the pictures from the disposible camera developed!

On our way to the big race!

Jennifer, Dave, Heidi and Liz at Bondi beach after the race!

Heidi and Liz checking out the 'Budgy Smugglers' - a team of 8 who 'ran' the race in Speedos. The team was frequently seen entering and exiting various bars along the route!

The Budgy Smugglers get friendly! Or should I say the girls get friendly! (click photo to enlarge!)

There's always time for a little shopping!
