Looking Back: Sydney (Part Two)

This is the final post in the series. I've enjoyed going back through the e-mails and pictures from our trip down under. We just picked up the tickets yesterday for this summer's vacation. We will be cruising in July, but more about that later!

Sydney E-mail #3:
G'Day,
We write this absolutely exhausted from a day of walking! We planned on heading to the Blue Mountains today, but decided to stay in bed instead of getting the required early start for the Blue Mountain train journey.

St. Mary's Cathedral

We went back to St. Mary's Cathedral to see the stained glass by day and then did the botanical gardens where we got some amazing photographs.



From there we caught the ferry to Watson's Bay for take out from Doyles. We ate on the ferry back and then walked across the Sydney Harbor Bridge. We picked up some groceries and sat at the pier taking in the sites before heading back to the hotel.

We are going up now to make soup and sandwiches. It will be an early night to be sure we make it in time in the morning! = )


We are slowly coming to accept the fact that we have to head home in a few days! We have had a GREAT time! We hope that all is going well for everyone.

Take care & God bless,
Jenny & Morgan


E-mail #4:

Hello!

We are just back from the Blue Mountains. We did a LOT of walking, but the views were amazing! We saw the 3 Sisters and rode the steepest railway in the world. The paths were wet, but the views were great! Lots of pictures to share!

"The Three Sisters"



On the way back we got some take out...a nice pie covered in potato and mushy peas for morgan and some nice Chinese food for me. We also stopped at a British Candy store...Morgan was like a child! We got a mixed bag of Kola Cubes, Cola Bottles, and Bon Bons (ideas for anyone coming our way soon...)

Thank you to Trevor for offering to pick us up...and to those who have replied to our emails...we will write more when we are not paying by the minute!

Hope all is going well! We are planning our last day in Sydney... = (

Take care,
Jenny & Morgan
