We have spent the last three days being tourists in Sydney. Despite two previous trips here there was so much we had not seen, so we climbed the harbour bridge pylon to enjoy the stunning views, had a closer look at the Opera House, walked the length of the Botanic Gardens ( where I was somewhat freaked by the thousands of fruit bats hanging around ) and of course managed a little light shopping.
Ness is a firm believer that the only way to really get to know a city is 0n foot, so we have pounded pavements, spurning public transport. All very exhausting- I suspect she will have me swimming across the harbour today. Hopefully I can persuade her that ferries are an acceptable way to get to Bondi.
Weather great as autumn approaches. Catching up with more friends this evening, then back to Mudgee on Friday to collect the ginger dog and van and plan phase 2 of the tour.
