Sydney

Ted and I are visiting Sydney this week and we met up with fellow 12 Brenda and her husband The Laundry King for a day if sightseeing. Brenda must have been a tour director in a former life as she had us exploring the city top to bottom.



Here we are at the Opera House with a bit of Sydney Harbor Bridge to the right.




One of the first things I learned to pay attention to was this sign. Cars have the right of way in Australia, so this was something we learned to do really quickly.




Today was spent in Paddington, a suburb of Sydney, wandering around the quaint row houses,




Some really run down ( my favorites),




And one with ruby slippers out front. As we were leaving the area we wandered by a glass gallery called Sabbia Gallery. www.sabbiagallery.com. It was Monday, so they were closed, but we stood there long enough with our jaws dropped open that they took pitty on us and let us in to view a new exhibition of glass work by artist Lisa Cahill lisacahill.com. Ted was on cloud nine the rest of the afternoon.



Our last stop of the day was Darling Harbor. Sydney seems to me a combination of San Francisco's urbanness and San Diego's weather. It's been a great trip so far.
