Beach day

A reasonable amount of sleep and a new red hat later, we decided to make it a beach day and took the ferry to Manly. And what a beach – sun, white sand, blue sea and surfers galore … And everyone so relaxed and friendly – apart from the bus drivers :-). Then we thought we must go to famous Bondi Beach which could have been Brighton Beach, apart from the surfers of course… My son Marc would have loved it! And Aldi is everywhere …
Highlight: the new red hat of course – Reiner says I look like an English lady but at least he could easily find me on the beach!

Sydney with jet lag

Jet lag hit us in a big way today but we had to go and see the Opera House, Circular Quay and Harbour Bridge before giving in to sleep!
Highlight: having a doze in the Botanical Gardens!

We’ve arrived in Australia!

We nearly didn’t get here as Reiner, trying to be a good tourist in litter free Singapore, ripped up his immigration document :-)). But it was only a minor kerfuffle and we managed to board the A380 on time. After a quiet overnight flight to Sydney, we had a bit of a bumpy landing but the view over Sydney Harbour was amazing. Reiner couldn’t wait to get off the plane and is so excited to finally be in Oz after 46 years of dreaming … Now we’re off to find the hotel and beach!
Highlight: being able to lie flat across the seats in the plane 🙂
