|My favourite animal at the zoo - a rhino work of art|
It's five years since we've been to Sydney so we enjoyed exploring the city and surrounds again. We took a boat cruise up the river to Parramatta, went to the Zoo, The Lion King and Strictly Ballroom shows, and the Blue Mountains. Sydney really is a beautiful city, and that extra bit of warmth made it all the more enjoyable. Here's some photos:

|the view from the bird show at the zoo - the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House (between the branches of the tree)|
This photo was taken while we waited for the bird show to start. It's the same bird show that William and Kate saw while they were in Australia earlier this year.
For the last night we hired a car and stayed in the Blue Mountains.

I wasn't brave enough to go in the Skyway, so I drove around to the other side to collect my husband and younger son who are more adventurous than me. You can read more about it here.
I didn't do a lot of shopping, but did get to Material Obsession and a couple of craft shops in the Blue Mountains. I'll write about them in my next post.
