Tropical Cruise

  • California Dreaming
    In mid-March 2012 Susan and I took a cruise on the Pacific Dawn from Brisbane to New Caledonia and Vanuatu. We were sceptical about a cruise holiday, but decided we should give one a try. It turned out that we had a lot of fun.

20th Anniversary Regency Ball

  • [298] the Wedding Models
    On 31st January 2009, we held a Jane Austen style Regency Ball to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The 50 Guests went to great effort with their costumes and participation in the dancing. A very memorable evening.

Vacation in Melbourne

  • Susan's pick-up outfit
    Last February Susan and I took a holiday in Hobart as the two of us alone. With the advice of our counsellor, we decided that this is a pattern that we should continue. So now we plan a holiday together at least once a year. This year we decided to visit Melbourne, our home city, as tourists. We also wanted to try out apartment living in the CBD so Susan organised a nice apartment at the Mantra on the Park. We spent 2 days doing tourist activities in Melbourne, just the sort of activities that we would normally do when visiting a city. Melbourne came up well in comparison to our other city experiences - it is a good place to visit.

Family Portraits

  • [070} Stringer siblings
    At our 20th Anniversary Ball we engaged Kellie from Romantic Events to capture some posed family portraits. She photographed most of them in a small pavilion at the venue, and some of us on a chaise longues, to get a period feel. Also to capture the style of the period we posed for some photos with relaxed, serious expressions - not all though, as it seems unnatural for photographs now.

Fun in Sydney

  • Sydney Opera House from Circular Quay
    Over Easter 2008 we had 7-days vacation in Sydney with the family, Johanna and Robin. We rented an apartment in the Meriton World Towers, located between the CBD and Chinatown. With such a central location, we had a fantastic time exploring lots of different parts of Sydney.

Xmas & Summer 2008

  • Loxton - the big pelican
    We had the Miller family to Xmas at our house this year, and the following day Susan's family came. After a weekend at Rye, we took off on a 2-week road trip to Adelaide. This was our first visits to South Australia, and it was a good one. Though on occasions the weather was hot, we mostly had extremely pleasant time.
