So I’ve been in Sydney this week. I complain and whinge and carry on about having to come down, but I don’t mean it – well, I sort of do. It’s great to see family and catch up with friends. And, while I have not missed the commute, it’s even okay to be in the office with real live people. And that’s not to take anything away from my usual office partner – Kali, Adventure Spaniel and Staff Engagement Officer.
Anyways, I’ve been in Sydney, and I’ve been working hard and playing just as hard. I was going to cheat and update an old post about Masterchef challenges, but instead, I’m going to cheat and share some pics from when I was out and about in the city on Sunday.
I met my friend at Queen Victoria Building, and we walked down to Darling Harbour, and around to Barangaroo. Even in the 12 or so months since I’ve been gone this area has come on leaps and bounds. Oh, and no filters in the pic below – it really was that blue…and icy cold.
From here we continued to Barangaroo Reserve. On a clear day, the water is impossibly deep blue and truly does sparkle.
Then it was past Walsh Bay and under the Harbour Bridge. It’s down here by the harbour on a day like this that I see the Sydney I love. It is a picture-postcard perfect city, but I while I enjoy visiting I don’t miss living here.
Lunch was at an old favourite – the Opera Bar – with an old favourite…not that she’s old, but she’s one of my favourites…oh, you get the idea.
After lunch, we took another walk – this time through the Botanical Gardens so that I could visit a tree. Yes, a tree. This tree is a massive Moreton Bay Fig, and it has a starring role in Happy Ever After so I wanted to make sure that my memory of the tree was accurate.
It’s Lovin’ Life Linky time…
It’s Thursday, so it’s time to look for our happy and share it about a bit. The Lovin’ Life Linky is brought to you by Team Lovin’ Life: Deep Fried Fruit, Debbish, Seize the Day Project, Write of the Middle, 50 Shades of Age, and, of course, me.
