Underfoot Down Under

To see this photo in a larger size, click here.

Over a year ago we did a big family trip to Australia. My grandfather immigrated from Australia during the Great Depression and left behind four brothers and sisters who all had families of their own. We've managed to keep in close contact over the generations, but were long overdue for a personal visit. So, me and my husband, my Mom, my sister and her family all flew over there for a big family reunion in Melbourne.

Of course, we couldn't just visit Melbourne, so we added on visits to Ayer's Rock, Cairns and Sydney. We wish we could have stayed longer and seen more, but we didn't have enough vacation time.

Here we all are on the beach on Port Douglas, which is north of Cairns near the Great Barrier Reef. I'd ask if you had any guesses which were mine, but my sister, my Mom and I have very similar feet.

I'm participating in ABC Wednesday today with the letter U.
