Uluru Record

The Castro family -- from left, Orlando, Marlo, 16, Arleen and Raquel, 13, of Pleasant Hill -- enjoyed a two-week trip to Australia during the Southern Hemisphere winter. They spent five days in Sydney and snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef in the Queensland Territory. They also took a moment to catch up on the community news in the Pleasant Hill/Martinez Record while visiting famous Uluru (Ayers Rock), a World Heritage Site.

It doesn't matter if your time away is spent across San Francisco Bay or across the country -- remember to pack the Record to keep up with news of the community, and then show your neighbors where you have been.
