Sun in Sydney! The Marriott here in the city is so close to the opera house and the harbour bridge- both of which we walked to on our first night here. Yesterday, Friday, we walked all over the city again...as our normal for a new city! Our trek took us to the Rocks neighborhood, the opera house, the botanical gardens, Wooloomooloo bay, Hyde park and then back down Pitt st to our hotel - busy morning! After a quick lunch at the st George st markets, we headed to Darling harbour to get the wildlife world to go pet a koala - which I did 😊. Her fur was really quite thick and was not as soft as I thought. We decided to take advantage of the beautiful night wet that'd dinner on the warf - great seafood plate for 2, everything right off the boat that morning! Quite good.
Saturday was market day - at least in the morning. The fish market would have been more fun if we could have actually shopped for the fishes instead of just looking - these were literally just caught and were just brought off the boat --- don't get fish quite that
fresh at home! Next market, the weekend george st markets. They had a lot of odds and ends and a little bit of everything - but not much worth buying. As if that were not enough walking, we headed out to Coogee beach to the Federation cliff walk. It's a 6k walk along the coast between Coogee and Bondi beach - up and down and along the many beaches between two - normally takes 1.5-2hrs, we were moving and did it in less than 1hr 😊. We were excited to get in the water, but it was really cold! Not like the warm water at Lizard...- brrrr! One dip for me was enough to cool me off just fine! After our freezing swim, Al finally found an elusive hat, which he has been looking for since the start - his head is bigger than most evidently...we finally found an extra large size, for a price that was perfect too!
We have accomplishEd quite a few of my "things to do" in Sydney already, time to start asking around for some ideas - sometimes those can be the best 😉
