Not another bridge walk…

Last full day in Sydney but also my niece Jordan’s 6th birthday.  We were going to go to Luna Park but unfortunately it was closed so we decided to go to the Sydney Aquarium in Darling Harbour. But before that Tayla, Mum and myself got a cab to the north side of Sydney to walk over the Harbour Bridge at ground level (still 49m metres over the water).  Well I know I did the Bridge Climb but still wanted to be able to say I’d walked over it.  I...

The Central Quay, where we would get the ferry was only...

Night swimming…

Well we have ended our first day in Sydney with a late night swim and dip in the spa pool.  Very relaxing even with my niece Jordan throwing herself about like a dervish.  Had a crack at some more photos of Sydney and managed to produce the first photos worthy of publishing to the site. Planning on a walk up to the harbour tomorrow and maybe take a ferry somewhere nice.  Should be a good chance to take some more photos.  Maybe including some...
