Fabulous flowering trees lined the wharf area.
The Circular Quay area is next to The Rocks and has a number of excursion boats and ferry boats operating from its docks. It is a transportation hub since the city train system and the bus system all have stops here.
A cruise ship (not ours) has the famous Harbour Bridge as a backdrop.
Sigrid was pretty excited about the sight seeing and the lack of sleep didn't slow us down. We still had a one mile walk uphill back to the hotel.
Our first look at the Sydney Opera House....a spectacular building.
We were hungry, so we stopped at a restaurant that was located in an old military barracks. Wolfie's was fairly upscale but what the heck....we are on an adventure.
Sigrid had Crocodile and Kangaroo while I had plain old fish and chips. The food was expertly done. I don't know how to explain the taste of Kangaroo but it isn't gamey at all. It looks like beef or bison in color but it tastes a little more like lamb....sorta. It was good. The crock was a little chewy, but not bad. With a bottle of Aussie beer and a glass of wine, lunch was $100. Australia isn't cheap. Australian dollars were pretty much equal to U. S. dollars while we were there.
