Grateful to see my first sunrise in Australia for over 3 months (does it get much more Australian than watching it from the Qantas Club overlooking a Qantas plane?)

Grateful for one last look at the Olympic Stadium (this time set up for the closing ceremony).  Ok, not technically on the 13th but we flew on a plane most of the day (13 hours) and ‘lost’ 7 hours which out of 24 hours doesn’t leave a lot of time … and it was the 13th in Singapore and Australia …

Grateful that the amazing Luxembourg Casemates were not destroyed as had been agreed in the 19th Century.  Remarkable to explore – even if a bit claustrophobic – and even to view from a distance.  The bridge in this picture you can walk underground underneath it to allow access even if the bridge was destroyed.

Grateful we both survived horse riding.  Was a scary section where all the horses got spooked and galloped away … mine ran off the path, into pine trees and up a steep hill; Simon’s zig zagged around other horses at great speed. It really was amazing that everyone in the group managed to stay on their horses.
