When you find yourself in a seaside town one of the best things you can do is to get yourself a boat and go exploring.
Find yourself a cove that has no one else in it and you can sit with friends and have a picnic lunch! Would you like to know more?
With our Annual Passes fast running out, we thought we’d best make use of one of the venues while it’s free.
So last Thursday on a slightly over cast day, we headed on up to what is now the Sydney tower, but in my heart will always be Centrepoint.
On a clear day you’re meant to be able to see to Ayres Rock (with assistance). This was not a clear day.
North – Harbour Bridge and beyond that, the family.
West – Darling Harbour (and though not visible, our house!)
South – I work in that jungle …
East – Watsons Bay makes the best fish and chips! Slightly out of shot: New Zealand.
Back a bit, and in a bit to: Kings Cross (Coke sign to the left) and Taylor Square (below the SCG to the right).
A tourist gimmick!
Damn I love this city ☺
Adventures are always more fun with Himself involved, and he out did himself with the organisation of this one! As usual for us we both over estimated how much we could fit into each day and packed way too much. Both in clothing and activities! Oh why oh why are there only 24 hours in a day? And why do I need to sleep?
But just for you (or maybe me) I have taken notes, and photos in order to recreate it all for you!
First there was a plane.
With the obligatory B movie reference.
And we flew North to the land of sun and sand.
In our first hotel we had this view. (Tough to take, I know.)
I never quite got over how the beach just goes on forever into the horizon.
The first theme park we went to was Seaworld. Where we went on rides,
spent a lot of time taking photos of sharks both over water
and from underwater.
And possibly not quite successfully resisting
buying toys. (Though this one still isn’t at his forever home …)
There is still much more to come, so stay tuned!
