March 16th to March 19th, 2016

Sydney was gorgeous!  We were up on deck at our usual before dawn time and were treated with our first view of the Opera House!  Wow is not the correct word to describe this marvel.  It rained off and on for the next couple of days, but we had fun and I made sure to splash in puddles.....because that is what I do!

 We checked into our Airbnb apartment with a spectacular view across the harbor of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge a 10 minute walk to our right. 

The ship we were on was leaving with new passengers

This Wagu Beef Hamburger was very good but the fries were amazing!

 On St. Patrick's Day we were treated to fireworks next to the Opera House

 Even with the lights of the city we saw part of the Milky Way, the Southern Cross and Triangulum Australe

My favorite shot by Mr. Hat

 This is Luna Park.  It is patterned after the original Coney Island

 A Ibis at the local fountain in downtown

 We stopped to rest on a bench at the Royal Botanic Garden after the rainstorm.  We heard all kinds of chattering in the tree above us.  I was lucky enough to catch these beautiful wild Rainbow Lorikeets!
