Hi all ( or few as the cse may be!)
Today I went to Bondi beach to catch a glimpse of the surfers! It was another lovely sunny day, so we sat on the beach and had a picnic. Then had a quick paddle in the PAcific ocean.
We also went to Manly, where there is another beach - a bit more upmarket than Bondi, well an older crowd, anyway. Felt more at home there, though there were more surfers - nearer to my age this time!
The Ferry over to MAnly was good - got a great view of the other side of the opera house.
We also visited Paddy's market - a huge collection of market stalls & picked up a couple of bargains.
This evening, finished up the trip to Sydney with a visit to Darling Harbour for a pint or two of Australian lager and some fireworks. They do a firework show twice a month in the harbour - it was cool.
Fly to Melbourne tomorrow, so will be able to caompare cities. I've been told Melbourne is a niced city, but also that it's cold and wet at the moment!
