I awoke early this morning so I could take in the sunrise from the ship…. The sky was on fire, just beautiful. After breakfast, I headed out toward Circular Quay to do some touring and meet up with Barbara & Frank Davis who were on the Pacific Princess. I headed out along the coast toward the Sydney Harbor Bridge and once there turned toward the Botanical Gardens. I strolled through the gardens for a while before heading back to Circular Quay to meet Frank & Barbara. I saw Brad & Gloria there and we sat with friends as we waited for them to arrive. It was so great to Barbara & Frank, I haven’t seen them since I visited them in Nova Scotia almost 2 years ago. We then headed out along the waterfront to the Botanical Gardens. It was a wonderful visit… we saw many amazing birds and some very creepy bats. When afternoon arrived we decided to start heading to Darling Harbor. We took a ferry at 1:20 heading that way. It was another nice photo op sailing under the bridge toward Darling. Once we arrived we walked around there a bit before I headed to the ship. Frank & Barbara left and went to the Pylon Overlook at the bridge where I saw them as we sailed out of Sydney Harbor. Great visit with special friends and a wonderful day….
