May 3 - We arrive early in the morning and are
shuttled to the Park Hyatt, located on the Rocks. After a quick shower, we
grab our first glimpse of the Opera House from our room balcony. The view is
spectacular and the location is perfect.|
We have breakfast in a French patisserie on the Rocks
and then walk around Circular Quay toward the Opera House.
When the Australian Wine Center opens at the Quay, we spend
some time reacquainting ourselves with some delicious local wines. From
here, we hop a ferry to Darling Harbor.
We stop for lunch before walking back to our hotel.
Along the way, we note residential construction is booming around Cockle Bay.
We spend late afternoon enjoying the sunset over the harbor
from our room. We walk to dinner at the Quay Restaurant. This day
was a great way to re-introduce ourselves to Sydney. Early the next
morning, we are on our way to Faraway Bay.
