Days 5 and 6 go in one post because I don’t have many pictures for day 6 so might as well lump both days together.
On day 5, we rented a car to drive around. First stop – the Sydney Fish Market.
It just looks like the seafood section in most grocery stores in the malls…
Malaysian baby octopi? I didn’t know we exported those.
Not Malaysian octopus, but I just like the photo
I wonder what these crabs taste like.
Oysters being cleaned.
There was a vegetable and fruit section. Here’s Ming posing with two huge bell peppers.
The thing I liked about the fruit/veggie section was the way they arranged the fruits and vegetables. They make them look so pretty!
I call this: “The Coconut’s Scream.”
Interesting spiral pattern on… some sort of vegetable. I forgot what.
There was a big pelican wandering around the parking lot.
After the fish market we went back into the city, parked somewhere and started walking around The Rocks and Circular Quay for a bit. Then we ended up at the Sydney Government House. I think they normally have free tours inside but we happened to go there on a day where there were no tours. Boo.
It’s like a little castle.
On Day 6 we went on a wine tour into Hunter Valley. I have minimal interest in wines and I’m not a wine connoisseur – there’s just white wine and red wine and I can’t tell one vineyard’s wine from another – so I was kinda bored after a while. (The whole situation was not helped by my being sick throughout this trip…)
A vineyard looking rather bare at the moment.
We stopped at this place called Hunter Valley Gardens for lunch. It’s like a sort of tourist village with some shops and restaurants and a couple of wineries around.
And it had “Aqua Golf.”
Dad gave it a shot.
Along the way we saw wild kangaroos!
This one was carrying a joey – see that bulge on the underside?
The kangaroos were the highlight of the day. hahah
