G'day, mates!




Our flight raced across the Pacific, crossed the International Date Line sometime about 4a Aussie time this morning, making us lose Sunday totally. We’ll get the day back enroute home next month:-)
First order of business upon arrival at the hotel was a shower, followed by a much-needed nap. Neither of us slept much on the plane. We woke up in time to go eat lunch in nearby Chinatown, then boarded the monorail and did a bit of touring, although it didn’t make as large a loop of Sydney as we had anticipated. We got off for pics at the aquarium area, which is where the ship will dock tomorrow, and got back on the monorail and went further along to the stop where we could go up the Sydney Tower. One picture is looking up at the Tower from the bridge near the aquarium, then the reverse...looking down on that same bridge. The other shot is a picture of the monorail.

I have blogs set up for about 10-12 days, so I’ll add more info to them as I am able. The weather is perfect...about 72. We plan to go back down to the water somewhere for dinner tonight. Where there’s water, that’s where you’ll find us! Life is good!!!

How fun. Did you see me waving when you were in San Francisco? I hope so. Can't wait to enjoy your trip with you. I love all the pictures and I too am happy anywhere there is water. Big hug. :)
