Sydney: Days 5 & 6

| 0 comments

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 :P


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

Got anything to add or say? :D
