Last stop: Sydney!

Catherine and I spent 2 days in Sydney. We had had a great view from our room:


We walked and shopped (of course)…



I was tempted to buy Han Solo in carbonite for my son, Chris, but thankfully he was not for sale. (Lorna, aren’t you glad this isn’t coming home to your house?!)


We walked in the gardens… that’s a fig tree!


We went to the Art Gallery of New South Wales where we got to view the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. There are 6 of them, each similar to each other, but different.



The 2018 Archibald paintings were also on exhibit but we chose not to pay to go, mostly because I had a sinus headache that was trying to kill me. Not really ‘kill’ me, but it definitely slowed me down. Darn, right?!

Vivid Sydney is happening now. Once it gets dark, the city around the harbor is filled with light and music. It was lovely! We saw it from the water one night. Last night we walked the streets. So, this is the Opera House by day:


And the same Opera House, lit during Vivid. The projected images changed, morphing from one thing to another…


There were random displays…


Catherine loved this one, that was all about microbes…



And now it’s time to go home. I’m going to miss Catherine! We had such a good time together. It’s going to feel lonely for a while. I’m glad that we can FaceTime until the next time we can get together in the real world.

  3. Thanks for this sentimental journey. My daughter lived in Sydney for about 7 years and I visited for a couple of months each year. You’ve photographed some of my favourite places. Such nostalgia. I love Australia!
