Hello Australia!

With great sadness we departed New Zealand and sailed fr two days across the Tasman Sea to reach Sydney, Australia.  We could not dock here, as there were already 2 ships disembarking and embarking passengers.  So we tendered just under the famous Sydney bridge.  Here this big city didnt have enough dock space in this famous harbour for all the cruise ships.

We sailed into this famous harbour under light of the full moon.  It was gorgeous!  Some of us we up to enjoy it.


Our first plan of action was the Sydney Opera House, wherevwe had a tour.  It is a magnificient structure.

Lunch was a great meal of fish and chips on Circular Quey.  Very reasonable for $15AD.

We did a little shopping here.

Aboriginal art and playing a didgeriedoo.
We got on the Hop on. hop off bus and had a tour around tge city.  Boy, was it a hot day!

The tower of the train station.

Then we visited the Sydney aquarium.

Lauree got mesmerized with this guy here.  A dugong playing with his toys.

We got the bus back to the bridge and headed back to our ship!  We were beat!
5 o'clock rush hour at the harbour. 
Beautiful city.
