Travel Day to Sydney, Australia

Up at 7, breakfast with Blaine & Dennis around 9 across the street at Café Excello. Good stuff, best I've had since we got here.

We all split for the airport at 11 and arrive to find that our flight is delayed by an hour or so. I camp out at the gate with the lovely Janet Taylor and we do the chill & chat until flight time.

On the ground in Sydney about 50 minutes later than scheduled. Straight to the hotel, and I go hide in my room for a bit. Nice room…

Head out to look for dinner around 6. Run into Darren and Adam down by the harbor. We make plans to meet up on restaurant row around 7:30 and they head back to the hotel.

I walked around until meeting up with them, taking a few shots along the way…

Sydney Harbor Bridge

Sydney Opera House

Central Business District

We wound up eating outside at a place called Wolfie's. The food was pretty good. I only had 2 beers and my share came to $90 AUD, which is about $80 USD. Note to self – find cheaper restaurants, so I might actually come home with some of my per diem money at the end of the tour.

All those years of seeing pictures of the Sydney Opera House and there I sat, eating dinner, and it was right there in front of me. Cool.

After dinner, we just kinda packed it in and went back to the hotel. I was in bed by 11:30 or so…
