photos 2004

2004 the first full year of Laurie retirement started with the long trip to Australia that we had always promised ourselves when we retired.  An indifferent summer weather-wise elevated by some good social events.  A warming trip to fascinating Cuba in November set us up for Christmas.



Australia - March/April

A chance to meet distant relatives in Perth, and to explore this huge continent.

Hamburg - June

Retirement allowed us to at last visit our old next-door neighbours; Stephanie and Christian who now live in Hamburg

Cuba - November

Cuba is unique, with its fascinating history, culture and captivating people.  
With changes not being far away on the island and the place still essentially un-developed we chose this as a suitable time to go.
