Day 2: SYDNEY-SIDING
After sleeping in for a bit, we eventually returned to the Sydney Harbour at around 10am. This time, we headed right for the Sydney Opera House and checked out the building a bit more. The weather remained ominously overcast, but there were moments where the sun tried to break through the thick layer of clouds.
We then walked around the harbour again trying to see what else would be of interest here. We did see some intriguing historical buildings as well as some kind of water fountain spraying water into interesting shapes.
When we had our fill of Sydney Harbour, we then spent the better part of the afternoon walking around some kind of shopping mall where Christmas festivities were definitely in full effect as the mall was adorned with elaborate decorations as well as there being a giant Christmas Tree in one of the main intersections.
When we had our fill of the Sydney Harbour area, we eventually meandered about an encountered a Chinese Garden, which we briefly checked out. It was a nice little relaxing spot before we returned to the Park Regis vicinity where fatigue was once again setting in.
I didn’t recall what we had for dinner on this night, but we once again kept it simple. Tomorrow was going to be the start of the road trip so I was eagerly anticipating what the Blue Mountains would have in store for us for that was where we were headed next.
However, I was well aware of the Australian Drought (through Triple J Radio), and I was fearing the worst when it came to our waterfalling experience in this side of the country.
