Day 10 - Darling Harbor, Gift Fair and Wedding Ceremony

Happy Birthday KIRK D (Kristen)

This morning we woke up and went down to Darling Harbor for the Australian Gift Fair. What a bonus – we can write off a portion of our trip as I made a couple contacts with some Australian gift manufacturers. Here is the proof we were here

After market, Carolyn, Julia, Mandy and I strolled through Darling Harbor admiring the water, architecture and large number of tourists (Carolyn calls them terrorists ). We concluded with some lunch and shopping in the harbor.

Later in the evening, we headed out to Gladesville to the “Banjo Patterson House” for Andy & Josie’s wedding. Upon arrival, Mandy was informed that she would be responsible for coordinating pictures. Later we found out that Mandy was chosen for this task for her assertiveness and “soldier like” behaviors (and most of those people have only known her for a couple days). Say it Ain’t So!!!

The wedding ceremony and cocktail hour were held outside overlooking the beautiful harbor. After pictures, Jim (father of the bride) personally welcomed each and every guest before welcoming the guests into the house for a spectacular dinner, toasts, cutting of the cake and a little late night dancing. The celebration ended around midnight.

Here we are with the bride (Josie) and groom (Andy). Congratulations and Best Wishes to you both.

Soldier like behavior... classic and so appropriate. HILARIOUS.
