Australian Wanderings Part 6





Friday was filled with all kinds of visual candy (besides Bill): attending 6:45 mass at nearby St. Mary’s Cathedral to experience the dawn sun fill the huge edifice with golden light; wandering through the Royal Botanical Gardens on our way to Circular Quay; taking the ferry to Taronga Zoo; riding the cable car to the top end of Taronga Zoo and then zigzagging our way back to the ferry; passing by the Royal Australian Navy’s Woolloomooloo facility; being blown away by the Aboriginal history display at the Australian Museum; having dinner with Steve, Betty, and Bron at the Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel (established in 1841) in The Rocks precinct; and looking at the Sydney Opera House at night on our way back to our Airbnb digs on Hyde Park. A great day! Enjoy the images.

Argyle Street disco - where I first had kangaroo tail soup in 1972!
(Except it wasn't a disco then.)
