Had breakfast in bed! Walked to Wharf 6 in slight rain and just as we reached it the rain started bucketing down. Very, very heavy. So heavy that there was flash flooding in Sydney!


We ran to a souvenir shop and got soaked. Try running in wet flipflops! Then ran back to near Wharf 6 where we had some lunch as the rain eased. We had an ice cream on the way back. There was a cruise liner in.

We went back to our room and read until mid-evening when we went out for a dinner cruise. The cruise ship slipping her mooring lines.


Having our canapés before sitting down. We had the top deck to ourselves as everyone else kept under cover.

Shadow of the cruise ship on the Opera House.

Interesting trying to take night photos from a moving ship!

The dinner cruise was 6 courses with a new drink per course!

A piano player and singer entertained us during the cruise. Suddenly they started playing Happy Birthday and I was given dessert with a sparkler on while all the staff and diners sang!


Finally we also had an Irish Coffee and then a Port. Very nice!


Back near the hotel.
