Finally got some time to take a couple of hours to pick out photos from Sydney.
But first, day 1! …Not much to say though.
Walked to Paddy’s Market and my parents and sisters all declared that yes, this place was familiar, and that our tour group went there when we last came to Australia in 2005. I remembered nothing about this place. haha (My clearest memories of that trip are of dolphins in Nelson Bay, penguins at Philip Island, and Sovereign Hill in Melbourne.)
My sisters just about lost their heads when, while we were in the hotel lobby, Youtuber Ryan Higa walked in and went to reception to check in. They eventually worked up courage to ask him for a couple of photos, and he was very nice about it.
Most of Day 1 was spent walking around the shopping areas so I don’t have much to say at all…
On to Day 2!
(I finally found out what this bird is called. It’s a silver gull.)
This bird had us all fooled for a while. We seriously thought it had only one leg… but it had two. lol
We were out there for about 4 hours; saw 3 whales – one humpback and two southern right whales.
I suppose that’s pretty good already since I’d almost expected to see nothing but still… it was a little underwhelming. I also got seasick (on top of being already sick to begin with), which wasn’t fun.
