Fourteenth Day

The rain has past by and the skies have cleared, so this morning Bob and I set out on foot to see what we could of Sydney. Turned out we saw quite a lot. The red line shows our travels that day.

First we went to the historic district known as The Rocks. We just took a quick look around, then headed back to Circular Quay, out to the Opera House, then through the Botanical Gardens, which bordered the campus of the State Library of New South Wales. We spent about an hour and a half touring the library, then headed back to the historic district for some shopping and lunch.

We ate lunch at the restaurant  on the left in the picture below. I no longer remember it’s name, but the food was very good. What I do remember are the rainbow lorikeets and myna birds hoping around our feet.
