G'day all. I can safely say I am blown away by Sydney.
Really nice and very well located Hyatt Regency Hotel, they didn't have our booking but within 5 minutes had us sorted. Blip somewhere between Trailfinders and the hotel.
The back Entrance leads onto Darling harbour. Enjoyed a nice lunch and took a walk through the main shopping area once again in search of the the size 62 hat due to Nick leaving the other one plus his camera in a restaurant in Melbourne, which by the way is being posted to is by a very nice lady called Minnie. Thank you Minnie.
We could only get a size 61 this time with some stretch so as they sat 'twill do.
When we arrived at circular quay I felt WOW this is just amazing. A huge Royal Caribbean Liner was berthed and it dwarfed everything around.
I thought of the men coming home from the war in Suvla Bay (from the song Waltzing Mathilda) and felt emotional. There is an outline on the harbour made with brass plates indicating where the Quay was years ago at it really was circular.
The Opera House is stunning and gigantic and the Sydney Harbour Bridge is equally fantastic.
As we took in the views the liner made its way slowly out of the port and it really was a sight to behold.
Finished the day with some really delicious prawns and a nice Marlborough Sauvignon.
