Snaps of Circular Quay, The Rocks and the Opera House

DSCN0769

The walk from Martin Place to Circular Quay was actually quite pleasant. Look at the lovely skyline! I couldn't believe it was only one month into spring. There was chilly wind when we walked through areas where there the tall sky scrappers blocked the sunlight from reaching the ground but it was superb once we reached the quay area. There were loads tourists and locals (you can always spot the tourist, they're usually the ones with the digicams snapping away and they're usually the ones wearing the wrong gear in town). No food experience here, we were too full from afternoon tea to fit anything else in.

This post marks the end of our day trip in Sydney.. well not really, we were still there on Sunday, but we mostly went shopping that day. Didn't do any touristy things at all, partly because we were buggered from all the walking on Saturday and partly also because Alv and I were due at the airport by 4pm to catch the 5pm flight back to chilly Melbourne. (It was about 7deg when we landed back in Melbourne at 6:30pm... dang it was cold..!)
