Just some stuff I want to share with you

So what does this town have to offer?

Yesterday when I walked back from Thrifty to my hotel I found the places I showed in my previous post. Today I want to look at things more closely. No big plans just walking around and see what’s here. Let’s start by looking out of my hotel room window:

P1020997
P1020999
P1030001

Then let’s move on to this big bridge that’s on the other side of the hotel. Before climbing start walking up it. Here’s an impression on what’s out there:

P1030009
P1030010
P1030011
P1030015
P1030025
P1030032

Then I started to look up. Hmm that’s high and there’s not a lot to hold on to. I watched a group of climbers going up and then I saw some of them turning around. And you know what: that did it… I am not going to climb this thing. I don’t have the guts to do so! Well that’s one thing of my “to do” list then.

Let’s move on. Here’s an impression of “The Rocks” and the harbor. As you can see everything is very close together. Ideal for a tourist like me: I don’t want to walk too far…

P1030036
P1030037
P1030040
P1030041
P1030042
P1030043
P1030044

Next to the harbor is the Royal Botanic Garden and in that area you will also find this:

P1030046
P1030050
P1030052
P1030054
P1030057

I just walked around this place for a few hours. It’s very relaxing and there are a lot of people around. It’s school holiday in this state and then there are all these tourists as well.

P1030058
P1030059
P1030061
P1030067
P1030069
P1030071
P1030090
P1030091

There were also a lot of joggers running in this park. It must be one of their preferred places to go to since I saw dozens of them.

I already mentioned the Australian sense of humor. Here’s another example:

P1030084

After all that walking it was time to see the Opera House. There are several tours of this place and I did the “essential tour”. Very interesting! And there’s another plus to these tours: you are not allowed to take pictures from the inside of the building… But here are a few from the outside.

P1030116
P1030117
P1030118
P1030119
P1030120

After all that walking around and seeing things it was getting dark again. It’s been a nice day, but now it’s time for a drink and it’s time to put my feet up.
