Of course there were koala bears.
But there were tons of other animals as well.
And bonus - it was feeding time.
After were returned to Sydney, we had a bit of time to relax and explore before the retreat started.
Kecia and I happened upon Wendy's Secret Garden in Lavender Bay and, before we even knew what this place was all about, had a short interaction with Wendy herself. This magical place has a wonderful back story and is a must visit if ever in Sydney.
From the garden there was a wonderful view of Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and Luna Park.
I was gobsmacked by the Moreton Bay Fig trees...
and the fascinating vegetation in the Garden...
...as well as all the hidden vignettes there as well.
Of course at some point, the retreat in Sydney began and now the play moved inside.
The coolest family ever was created in one of Kecia Deveney's classes.
And Linda Lucas showed her peeps how to use my Spellbinders dies to create a shabby chic look.
Couldn't resist a photo op
Seth, Kecia, John, Andrea and Michael
And just as quick it started, the packing began again for our next stop on the roadshow
Bonus points if you can find Michael deMeng.
Next: hanging out on the Sunshine Coast
