After a really good night’s sleep, today we were ready to take on the rest of what Sydney had to offer!
But the first job was to seek out breakfast – and we found somewhere very near the David Jones Department Store…
Suitably stuffed, and after our daily dose of retail therapy in the rather ginormous David Jones, we headed off to Circular Quay for a ferry-ticket to Watson’s Bay – and our ultimate destination for today, Hornby Lighthouse (in Sydney’s National Park).
It was on the journey there that we noticed there was also a nudist beach along the route – Lady Bay (stop tittering at the back!). It may be legal but it was clearly not compulsory, as even after the briefest of looks, there were quite a few ‘residents’ overdressed mingling with those who were making the most of the opportunity. I’m also beginning to realise now where that Ozzy phrase ‘Big down under’ comes from now!
After reaching the Lighthouse, we headed back, stopping-off at the restaurant near the Ferry terminal for a quick bite and a drink – The Watson Bay Beachclub Restaurant.
Then it was back on the Ferry back the Circular Quay – and the 30 minute walk back to the Apartment for a quick ‘feet-up’ before going out again tonight to meet up with Andy McLean, at Caffe Amici in Sydney, for our evening meal and a good chat (we haven’t seen him for a few years).
It was great catching-up with all Andy’s news – and the rather superb food made it even more memorable! After we said our goodbyes, we walked back in the direction of the Apartment. The bonus was that it was now dark and the whole city looked very attractive ‘lit up’.
More exploring tomorrow – our last full day here in Sydney before jumping on the Cruise Ship on Saturday.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
