About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

Arthur's Seat and My Week.

We have been enjoying family time, with our Victorian Family and Sunday was no exception.

We went to Arthur's Seat on the Mornington Peninsula. Named due to its resemblance of Arthur's Seat in his home town of Edinburgh, by Acting Lieutenant John Murray, in February 1802. We took the gondola ride to the summit and gazed at the stunning views. The weather was brisk but not cold and with no wind, it was pleasant to walk around. We sat on Arthur's Seat, also had morning tea and took heaps of photos. Didn't see any eagles or kangaroos.


At the top.

The plaque on the seat. Yes we took a seat.
 

Looking over Port Phillip Bay.

Another stunning view.

There was racing on the bay, even though there didn't seem to be much breeze. This was taken on the way down.
Looking towards Geelong.
 
Lunch at Dromana, with seagulls for company and lovely views of the area.


Beach huts dotted the shoreline.

Tuesday saw us at school for an assembly and the presentation of academic awards and principal's awards. 35minuets and it was done, very slick and the speeches were very short.
 
Today I have just finished listening to a webinar on German Church Records and how to find them by Michael D Lacopo.  It was very helpful and I can't wait to have another go at finding the records.
 
Bye for now.
Lilian.
