Sydney continued............

We are flying back to Adelaide later today so thought I would leave you with a few different views from the hotel over the last few days......

It would be hard to tire of this view....no rush to get out and about this morning..the conference finished last night so we have a bit of time to spend in the city before the flight leaves. The harbour is busy with early morning commuters......and we haven't even made it to breakfast yet!

On Monday night and we were treated to a fireworks display on the harbour as part of the conference dinner entertainment...............

.......the venue for the conference and the dinner was Luna Park.......

....which was directly below where we stayed......a short walk down several flights of steep stairs and around the harbour boardwalk.......easy on the way there.....a bit slower on the way back......as we were making our way back to the hotel after day one of the conference .... occasionally stopping (to admire the view of course...nothing to do with not being able to breathe!!!) we were passed by a young woman who was almost sprinting (well walking briskly anyway) up the path.....in heels and carrying on a conversation on her mobile!......The only conversation I was capable of was "are we there yet???".....LOL.....!

Better get my bags packed....there are boats, trains and planes waiting to take me home!

'Til next time........................Lorraine
