Holiday road trip to sydney

A couple of weeks on the road visiting some of our beautiful children in Glebe and Redfern,
friends at Maitland in the Hunter Valley and family in Quirindi on the Liverpool Plains.

A night spent altogether at the YHA in Sydney Central, was a treat and extremely good value, 4 bed  room with ensuite for under $200 and this roof top view was just fantastic.
We watched bikes racing across the Sydney Harbour Bridge competing in the Sydney Triathalon as we enjoyed our morning coffee from the YHA coffee shop...awesome!

Comming back via the New England Highway,
(a drive so much easier and more relaxing than the Pacific Highway and just as quick!)
I journeyed through Armidale, the autumn colours are spectacular.
 I have tried to get the almost louminous shades of red in contrast to the earthy tones but I simply don't have the skill to capture what I see.
