Across the bridge
I crossed the Sydney Harbour Bridge on foot for the first time today, making it officially the first time I've been in North Sydney. Walked around at Milson's point for a while, and then into Luna Park, the amusement park with the scary face, where I ended up watching a dance show for an hour. It seemed to be a local dance school was having their performance as all sorts of different groups ranging in ages and skill levels performed. It was nice and relaxing, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky that wasn't generated from the skywriters who seemed to spend all day covering sydney's skies in graffiti. I had packed a lunch so I ended up eating there as well while watching. Afterwards I wandered around the town, and finding little there to do on a Sunday afternoon, I crossed back over the bridge and went over to the Museum of Contemporary Art. They had just redone their exhibits for the Biennale this year. Following that I decided to head into the Botanic Gardens, with an eye towards going to Mrs Macquarie's Chair, just to see it. It's only a chair carved into the stone, but having never seen it I figured it was worth a quick look. As the day was so beautiful out I decided to stay in the park and ended up just sitting on the grass with many others, just reading and enjoying a warm winter day. As it got later I realizes the sun was starting to go down, and the air got a little cooler, but I decided to stay and watch the sun set over the harbour, something I hadn't really done yet. The sky was perfect for it, and I got several nice pictures, although nothing truly spectacular. I'll try and get them up soon. Then it was back to the bus stop where I grabbed a bus home and made dal for dinner. Now maybe a little studying before it's time for bed again.


Sounds like a lovely day. What's dal?
That sounds like a great way to spend a day. Guess the weather is still conducive to walking. It's nice to hear about places we've been, even though they probably look quite different now.
Hope the exams are going well.
Love from G and G
