After breakfast in the hotel we went to the Weekend Market which was just outside the hotel. Some interesting items there and if it wasn’t for luggage space and cash shortages I could have bought quite a lot! 🙂
Further ice cream testing was needed. Harbour bridge in the background. I think my ice cream must have started off larger than Noel’s…. 😉
We walked over to the wharf where cruises were leaving from. Nearby were these guys playing a CD of Aboriginal music.
One of the cruises leaving with the Harbour Bridge and Opera House in the background.
We got on a 2hr ‘Coffee Cruise’ which took us to the Harbour entrance and Middle Harbour, on the way dispensing a coffee and a box with cakes. Mmmm.
Below is where we embarked.
If you look carefully you can see people walking on top of the bridge. A company runs ‘climbs’ up the bridge.
Below is the area where we had dinner last night.
Heading towards the Harbour entrance, away from the bridge.
Fort Denison in the foreground to the right.
There were lots of sailboats. I felt sorry for the ferry captain trying to weave a path through them.
Nielsen Park. Note the shark net poles! 😮
Lots of boats having fun.

A glass of wine beside Clontarf.
Where there was an assassination attempt on Prince Alfred in 1868.
As we went back towards the bridge we could see threatening weather forming but it didn’t develop into rain.
The Prime Minister’s Official Residence.
The Opera House with The Rocks to its right.
Having gone under the bridge, this is looking back.
Some of the Old Wharves.
Coming back past where we had dinner last night. Tall ship moored up.
Big plane overhead!
This is where the Cruise Ships dock.
We got back to the hotel and had a coffee in the lobby. Noel then did some work into the evening.
Just before 9pm we decided that after all that adventure we were hungry. Some of us more hungry than others…! 🙂 We went to the Lowenbrau Keller, a German-style restaurant where the staff dressed in traditional German clothes. Pork knuckle anyone?!
