Back in Sydney

After disembarking from the cruise, Shell, Ric, Peter & I booked into our accommodation, we have 2 nights in Sydney. We spent time walking around Darling Harbour, the Chinese gardens, lunched along the waterside, Shell & Ric took a ferry to Manly, Peter & I took a train to Redfern to lunch with Peter’s sister Carole & Costa, they have a amazing home & the lunch was awesome – thankx guys.

We dined that night with mates Jennelle & Darren who we worked with & met in Tasmania, always great to catch up with these guys somewhere in Australia. Had 4 days in Brissy before heading back to Darwin & Kununurra. Was really good to share a dinner with Peter’s girls unfortunately no Lisa but she is always in our heart & thoughts. Peter got to spend a little time with his grandies which is always a great experience for him, I spent time with my older, smaller sister Lesley & Al (her honeybun) & also my Jenna who is very pregnant & beautiful.

They have brolga’s in Sydney town.
