Sydney is wonderful! We got into the city and were lost, lots of one way streets so we drove over the Harbor Bridge twice in our quest to find the hotel. Found it, checked in and left again to drop off the car. We took the train back from the airport. When we got out of the station we found two surprises. One made me happy , the other Elisa. A Starbucks and Max Brenner, right near the hotel. We walked down to King Street Wharf in the Darling Harbor and had Thai for dinner. Then we walked the Harbor and went to Starbucks and Max Brenner for coffee and dessert. After that we were back to hotel and watched You’ve Got Mail. Dial-up memories! Elisa did not like the fact that at the end, she wasn’t even a little mad he lied to her.
Looked around for a bottle shop to buy some wine, but can’t find one. Elisa and I got cleaned up from the beach and then dressed for a night out. First stop, the Royal Gardens where we walked all the way to Mrs. Macguarie’s Chair. The view of the bridge and opera house was fabulous. The only thing I didn’t like were the bats in the trees and flying around.

Very creepy. There was a wishing tree which we walked around and made wishes. I hope mine comes true. Not telling what it is or it won’t, those are the rules you know. Then we had a delicious dinner on the wharf again. I had lamb and some great wine from the Bleasdale label, a Malbac, which seems odd but I checked my receipt and that is what it says. Elisa had Blue Tongue beer or ale, also yummy. Elisa bought a cute hat and then we went back to the hotel.
