Lisa Wilkinson is enjoying a well-earned break from Channel Ten this holiday season.
And on Sunday, The Sunday Project host revealed how she was forced to part ways with a cherished possession while relaxing on a yacht on Sydney Harbour.
In an Instagram post, the 61-year-old told fans how the hat she has worn on holidays for years was whisked away by the wind, just moments after her photo was taken.

‘Total holiday mode. Love you Sydney,’ Lisa began her post, alongside numerous love heart emojis.
‘PS. Sadly, seconds after this was taken my favourite hat (the one I’ve been taking on holidays for years) was whisked away by the wind and disappeared into Sydney Harbour,’ she continued.
‘We tried to grab it (much to the amusement of everyone watching), but boat traffic made it impossible. So if anyone finds it, enjoy!! She’s been everywhere with me, she even floats, so she’s out there somewhere.’

Sharing photos of the couple outside the old Channel Nine studios in Sydney’s Willoughby, Lisa explained how 60 Minutes journalist Liz Hayes played matchmaker.
‘You see 30 years ago last May, Peter and I met in the Channel Nine makeup department for the very first time when we were both guests (in separate segments) on the Today show,’ Lisa began.
The journalist said their first meeting was nothing more than a ‘brief introduction and a handshake’ as they were both in their own respective relationships.

Lisa revealed how Liz played matchmaker 18 months later when they were both single, and after just nine months, they tied the knot.
The former magazine editor, who shares sons Jake, 27, Louis, 25, and daughter Billi, 23, with Peter, gushed about how their marriage has survived.
‘Well, three kids, four changes of address, five animals, the occasional disagreement and a million good times later, the marriage has survived,’ she wrote.
Lisa accompanied the heartfelt caption alongside two photos of the couple standing next to the Channel Nine sign at the Sydney Willoughby studios, before the site gets bulldozed to make way for an apartment block.
