And then there was Monday!
Day 4 included a visit to the Powerhouse Museum and a stroll around the Chinese Gardens of Friendship. Both provided a significant amount of photographic opportunities....
Of course Monday was a very special day as it was Shane's Birthday and so we had to celebrate it in style. We had such a fun day and finished off with a very late night - a Thai dinner at Darling Harbour, a very long walk, lots of laughs and a bit of fun at Star City Casino.
Day 3 in Sydney.
Of course Day 3 was Sunday and there are certain traditions to be upheld. So our day started with Pancakes - for me it was Apple and Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes. And they were pretty darn good although I think in the photo it looks like they were served with chips at a glance. Those "chips" were big chunks of cooked apple and it all went down a treat!
Then it was off for another cruise - this time on the Manly Ferry to check out Manly Beach. Eff managed to make some new friends in a couple of Manly Lifesavers who kindly assisted in some photography and we came away with these photos of the outing.
We finished up Day 3 with a sunset Cruise on the Harbour, dinner at Circular Quay and a walk around the Opera House before heading back for the night.
The holiday continued....
Day 2 and we had a fantastic time on Saturday. We started off with a tasty breakfast at the Hyde Park Cafe.
and then it was off to wander through Hyde Park itself. I was really happy with the photos I took and got some good shots of Shane as well which is pretty rare!!!!!
Then it was on to Circular Quay and a Ferry Ride. The amazing thing is that I've been to Sydney so many times over the past 20 odd years and never been on the Ferries. If you haven't done it - I highly recommend it. Loved every moment of it and the photo opportunities from the Ferries throughout our holiday were so memorable.
