Day 42 Sydney, Australia

I got up especially early this morning for the sail into Sydney Harbor. It is one of the finest harbors in the world…. just grand. After our arrival, four of us, Janice, Lola, Doug & I headed for the Bridge Climb. We got off on the 9:05 bridge climb and it was wonderful. Our climb leader, Michael, was great… best yet! After the climb we went up to the bridge pylon and took photos from the fantastic viewpoint. I went back to the ship to drop off a few things and it was back out exploring Sydney. I headed out to the markets and spent some time roaming around and checking out all the merchandise. Then it was off for a photo tour of the waterfront and Botanical Gardens. The views are just amazing. I spent the rest of the afternoon touring the city and enjoying the spectacular weather. Tomorrow I’m off to the Blue Mountains….
