Opera House Tour & Royal Botanic Gardens- Sydney Australia

We completed a day in Hunter valley & another day in the Blue Mountains. This was our final full day in Sydney. Last night The Blairs went to an opera at the Opera House-Barber of Seville. Today we are going to tour the Opera house. Later the Blairs are climbing the bridge. We climbed last time so we are just going to meander around the city.
The Barnhills stayed at the same hotel. They are heading out to the Blu Mountains (this was actually taken on the day we went to Hunter Valley)

Aw, poor monkey boy. No climbing in the Royal Botanic Gardens

The trees were massive

Finally we caged them

The art was angry in contrast to the pretty park

See- bones?

Romantic spot

Flocks of white cockatoos

Eating magnolia buds

And berries

The ladies in teal are gearing up for a 50 mile walk for charity

It was the 200th anniversary of the Royal Gardens

I think this wedding couple was my favorite-

A Blair sighting

Onto the Opera house tour. The Opera house is an Unesco World heritage site.

I think my favorite picture of Ken

Diana Krall is coming to town

So is Simply Red

Someone had a late night

Jim is ordering our food. We got a thing called tour & tasting plate. We weren't sure what to expect but it was quite nice....and a lot of food!

Food arrived

1 per couple

Gulls were very annoying, but Dan fed them wasabi as behavior modification

Tomorrow starts Chinese New year

Blairs went to climb the bridge & we went for more city tours

A barrister

Sunscreen man!

Back to Bondi because we can!

Loved the green space created on this high rise

Off to meet the Blairs for dinner

No we didn't eat any but what art!

I didn't realize Capt. Cook was a Nurse! (Joke)

We stole the Osters table!
Cool place in the Rocks where we grilled our own food

Or you ate what they cooked- Pork w/ cracklin

Vacation is over (sad face)

Monkey boy doesn't want to make the 30 hour journey home.....
