Day 27 - 28th December 2018

Travelling back to Sydney
Day 28 resting
Day 29 Visited the Australia Museum and saw the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year final enties
Link: You can see them here

Day 30 - 31st December 2018

Lazy day saving energy for tonight
Been great weather most of the month but this evening Nature rebelled

We were soaked to the skin by the time we reached our open air resturant in the Royal Botanic Gardens
Where we had dinner in the rain but with THIS view

9 p.m. saw the start of the Family Fireworks show

Day 31 - 1st January 2019


All shots were taken without a tripod - which is a pity because I would have liked to try a few long exposures

All over - time to head home

Day 32 - 2nd January 2019

A visit to Darling Harbour and Sydney Sea Life Aquarium

This is in fact a telephone switch box in Drummoyne but it seems appropriate

I won't bore you with too many pictures of fish

They have a very friendly Dugong

They had two for rehabilitation and both were released but this one had to be re-rescued and has stayed with them

And Jelly fish

and the usual big vista shark tank

We then headed back into Darling Harbour for lunch
This is one of the few remnants of Sydney's Monorail that was dismantled a few years ago

The big wheel was undergoing its annual service

Cropped shot (cutting out the kids) of an unusual paddling experience

Close of day - heading home
