We are from Australia. We live in a beautiful place called Port Stephens which is just north of Sydney by about 2 hours drive. It is an ocean holiday location with surfing sailing whale/dolphin watching etc at your doorstep.
We love our home on the water front looking over the very large bay of Port Stephens. Most of my time is spent in the garden as I have a large cottage type garden with a vegetable patch and hen house (in the suburbs!) We are fortunate that we are a short drive to Sydney and Newcastle to take in a show/galleries or some shopping etc. Newcastle is where our kids go to work or school and is only 45minutes drive. It has featured in Lonely Planets top 10 cities to visit recently. We have 3 sons almost adults and they spend their time surfing, motorbike riding,wake boarding and boating when not at work or school. We love to travel together (especially them as we pay!) and New York is at the top of our list at the moment.
