Sydney scenes

Here are some pictures from Sydney.  I am sure that many of them show familiar places, but it’s different when you are “there”.  (Incidentally, I think that the Opera House “shows” better in photo’s than up close. It seems to need a coat or two of paint). Tomorrow, some pictures of lovely Australian countryside.

Hotel in Sydney. "You can take the boy out of Bristol, but you cannot take Bristol out of Australia!"

Everyone, but everyone photographs the bridge!
