*I decided just this minute that, instead of emailing folks individually, I'd update the blog via these little missives from the other side of the globe.*
We got a good night's sleep after a delightful dinner with the owner of an agency here that I'd met thru Rick - they drove us around Bondi Beach... So beautiful.
This morning, we left the hotel around 9, went and explored the Opera House, the Botanical Gardens (they have a colony of bats!!! Thousands of bats!) & Macquarie street all before lunch. We are going to walk a bit more, then going to the fish market for late lunch.
(I wrote the above a couple hours ago)
We have now eaten a dozen oysters, a lobster and half a dozen local prawns for $37 AUS (or about $24 US)!
Tonight we're eating having nibbles at Odyssey Wine Bar, and another passion fruit macaron from the no-name patisserie around the corner, followed by a night cap at the bar at the Opera House.
Sydney is gorgeous & fascinating, and we're really glad to have another day and a half here on our way back to the states.
