Sydney - part deux

The last of our 3 day jaunt to Sydney consisted of us going to a few hot spots, namely Bondi Beach, Sydney Opera House, and the botanical gardens.

Bondi Beach

It is just one of those famous beaches you have to visit while in Sydney. Even though the sky was blue and the sun as shining it wasn't a particularly warm day, but that did not stop the droves of near naked or skimpy-bikini cladded youngsters strutting around there. We couldn't find a parking space anywhere near the beach, so we stopped at end of the stretch at the top of the hill.

Kien was just itching to run around, so we let him lose.

He collected rocks to throw into the surf.

He also befriended this couple, and when Kien is on a roll he becomes animated and very chatty. They engaged with him, which was a relief, because I never know if he's annoying or endearing people when he does that.

The Opera House

I've seen this structure a few times now, but I'm still amazed by it's beauty.

We had breakfast/lunch in the sun after we checked out of the hotel on Monday.

Kien wanted to run and chase the cheeky seagulls that terrorised anyone attempting to eat their meal.

After breakfast/lunch we went for a walk around.

We shaded from the sun and had a rest in the botanical gardens situated right next to the opera house. It was such a fabulous spot.

Kien likes to gather twigs and things to build a camp fire. So he spent ages doing that.

We then headed to the airport, stopping at this great playground to kill some time...

...and then our holiday was no more.
