Australia Day - January 26

We spent Australia Day with Liz, Darren, Emma and Elisha in Sydney city. Liz is the sister of Bernadette whose husband Anthony will be teaching with me at Mount Saint Joseph. Darren is from Canada and enjoyed catching up on his beloved Calgary Flames.
Early in the day we were hanging out around the Opera House watching the ferry boat race. We then enjoyed a picnic lunch near Hyde Park while watching helicopters fly by. Off to Darling Harbour where they had loads of activities for the kids. A quick ‘Snag on the Barbie’ (sausage on a bun) and back on the train to Picnic Point where Adam bartended from the tree fort. We hurried off to see the tail end of a fireworks display in Milperra near my school – not too shabby.
Sydney was even nicer then we imagined. We plan to go into the city often to enjoy museums, the Aquarium, the Zoo and ferry boat rides!
