Here comes the New Year

Twitter keeps Sydney current. Tents were in place by 5:00 a.m. in coveted areas. No, not a gold rush, but a Fireworks Festival. The best viewing areas are FULL.

Thankfully, the apartment tower I am in has a viewing deck …just a few floors up. That’s where I will be. 

Some of the locals begin the celebration…



And, hmmm, enjoying! 

Let the party begin!


Sydney Fish Market 

28 Dec

Boats arrive with the fresh catch. Fish and jellyfish drift under the dock. Ice is dumped. Men and women fill display cases and shipping containers. 

Trawlers set the scene…

while diners enjoy.

Scallops. Yum. 

Foodies welcome!

Let the shopping begin!

27 Dec

I took the ferry from Circular Quay to the Taronga Zoo. I passed the long queues entering the zoo and took the trail along the bay until Clifton Gardens Beach. The beach was busy. 

The trail was well marked and offered incredible views. 

The Iconic Sydney Bridge..and those brave souls high above the harbour!

The exploring completed, the bus brought me back. Near my apartment, Frank from Italy, has a tiny bistro, tucked in a quiet lane. He created a fresh crisp salad …extra avocado, less chicken….while I enjoyed a cappuccino and read the paper. 

Amazing, no?
