Memories - Nan Tien Temple
I found an old photo album and came across this photograph sitting loose inside it.
I love it so much, and remember the occasion so well. It was the first weekend that Nan Tien Temple in Wollongong was open to the public, and my grandparents were visiting us, with my Great-Aunt Audrey. Both Aunty Audrey and Grandma have passed away now, and it makes me so happy to see them here. They loved that visit so much, and were so blown away by Nan Tien, which really was amazing - nothing like it had ever been seen in Australia.
The night before Aunty Audrey had tripped and hurt her leg, and said that she wouldn't be able to make the day trip with us. In the morning I was adamant that she come with us. After we'd spent some hours looking over the temple complex she turned to me and said, "Oh love, I am so glad you made me come - I wouldn't have wanted to miss this for the world."
