Special announcement -
Due to technical difficulties there will be no more pictures posted until we get home. Translation: I'm IT challenged and this morning when I looked at my camera ALL my pictures from Ayers Rock and Alice Springs were gone. So much for any of you who were impressed that we were going to blog. I hope you can enjoy the written description until later. Ay de mi. Fortunately, there are 2 of us and we are taking pictures in tandem so.... there are duplicates in Felicity's camera too. Thank goodness for that.
Now for today. We spent the morning on a tour of the city. We saw the Opera House, Darling Harbor, Mrs. Macquarie's chair and lots of lovely neighborhoods. The driver said we were in the area where Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman have homes but they didn't invite us for tea. Oh, shucks.
At the end of the ride, we got off and wandered around Darling Harbor. This must have been the day for school trips since we saw tons of young children in uniform with their teachers. We both had big smiles on our faces since we were not responsible for them. And, can you believe it, they were eating their lunches right by the water! Yikes. Maybe they haven't yet heard of liability.
We then used the map and wandered around the city. We found the Queen Victoria Building which is a beautiful old building with lots of stained glass and architecture and now it is a high end shopping area. We also visited St. Mary's Cathedral, the oldest Catholic church in Australia and is fashioned after Notre Dame. It does remind you of the cathedral.
Now we're back at the hotel for a bit of a rest before dinner. And I wanted to get back to try and retrieve my pictures but no luck. I think there is a moral in here somewhere. Any ideas?
Have a great day everyone. We are!
