Last Thursday I went into the city to meet a friend at Circular Quay. I have many photos which I took there and will put them on my blog later. We had lunch in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens which adjoins the Sydney Opera House on the harbour and is one of my all time favourite spots. I used to go there with my father many years ago and have enjoyed many picnics with my friends and family. It was looking particularly beautiful in spite of the grey day, as there were many spring flowers out, and the sweet scent of wisteria filled the air. Hope you enjoy these. I really appreciate being able to take a train from my home in the suburbs to Circular Quay, where I can take a ferry to Manly, Taronga Zoo or numerous other places, or just hang out with all the tourists and buskers at the Quay. It’s only a short walk to the Opera House and the Botanic Gardens, and you are in a haven of peace and tranquillity in the heart of the busy, bustling city.
