Somewhere in Sydney

Somewhere in Sydney...that's where I've been the past few days, soaking up a bit of winter sunshine, hence the lack of posts since Monday.

Whilst in Sydney, we took in the harbour by ferry...

Passed by the iconic Sydney Opera House...

And, taking the ferry, we went all the way down to Watson's Bay to walk in the national park and take in the sight of the South Head entry to the harbour...

We watched the ice skaters skating in the shadow of St Mary's Cathedral...


And we wandered the back streets of Paddington and Woollahra gazing at the gorgeous terraces with their lovely architectural detail...

All in all, it feels like we walked a million miles in three days we were in Sydney. I wish I'd had a sunshine yellow Vespa to ride around on instead, just like this cute one I spotted on the street in Surrey Hills...

Vespa... a piece of Italy in Sidney.
Beautiful pictures... as usual I "fly" thinking about Australia.

Gorgeous pics! I love Sydney too - one of my favourite things to do when we're there is wander around Paddington admiring all the beautiful terrace houses. Looks like you had nice sunny days to enjoy there.

You're in my old stomping ground! We lived in Paddo - just behind the market... love the new Reservoir (although both my sons ended up in the water feature...!) Enjoy Sydney - looks like the sun is shining. A x

Lee it looks like you had a fabulous time in Sydney! It's always so interesting to see how other people see your city .... I have to say I liked looking at it through your eyes! Hope you have a lovely weekend. Leigh
