Our last day in Sydney

Tuesday was our last full day in Sydney and was a mixture of business for
Peter (and waiting around for me) and pleasure. We caught the train to
North Sydney where Peter had one appointment (and I wandered the shops) and
then caught the train again to St Leonards where he had a second
appointment. Fortunately these were all on the same train line so it was
very easy. After his appointment we took the train back to Circular Quay
and caught the ferry to Watsons Bay which is the home to the famous
restaurant - Doyles Seafood Restaurant. It was a lovely day and quite warm
so the trip on the ferry was very pleasant stopping off at Double Bay and
Rose Bay.

Once back in the city we had an hour to fill in before Peter had a third
appointment. We decided to take a further ferry ride under the harbour
bridge to Luna Park and then to Balmain and Darling Harbour. Fortunately we
have both been to Darling Harbour previously so we were not concerned that
we didn't have time to go ashore and eat in one of the many restaurants.

I headed home by train and bus and left Peter in the city to complete his
appointment. We are old hands at public transport now and at $2.50 per day
for a senior (sometimes embarrassing to admit that we have reached that
status!) it is excellent value covering all the trains, buses and ferries.

Tomorrow we say good-bye to our doggie friends, Cleo and Patra, and will
commence the final week of our trip around Australia. We will travel the
coast road to Melbourne and plan to reach Melbourne by Tuesday, 23rd
