Last day in Sydney

Tomorrow morning I leave for Houston. Today I went one last time into Sydney. I took quite a few pictures...mostly of stuff I've taken pictures of before...from a slightly different view point. Today I walked across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. There is a "footpath" across the bridge. Of course, I took some pictures. The view from the bridge is pretty amazing. You can do what they call the "Bridge Walk" where you actually walk over the entire span of the bridge along the very top. This costs about 200 AUD. Too much for me.
Anyway, here is a picture of Circular Quay from the bridge.


I have a few more pictures that I may post later...I'll be back in Houston.

Till then,

G'day

Sydney CBD

Here's a picture of the Sydney CBD.


This was taken on the way back from the whale watching cruise. The Opera House is off to the right...you can see a little bit of it. There were a lot of sail boats out that day. They were all over the harbour...great day for sailing.

Later

Night at the Opera House

Well, I'm still here in Sydney without my bag...but I did buy some new clothes. I have been taking time to go into the city and do some of the same things I've done before. I've gone without my camera...my little one is in my "lost" bag. Yesterday I went on a whale watching cruise. We saw one little lousy whale...humpback. It did one little tail smack and that was about all. I do have a picture I might post later.
I stayed in the city till dark and got a few new pictures.


The first is the Opera House and the second is of the Opera Bar on the concourse underneath the Opera House. This is a busy place normally full of tourists...of course.
There are shops and restaurant/bars all long this side of Circular Quay, pronounce that "key". Of course there is a great view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge from here. I have a few of those I might post at a later date.
This is all for now. I'll be leaving Sydney for Houston on Tuesday. I'll try and post once or twice more before then.

G'day
