Met Rob, Hayley's friend from Singapore, in Bondi in the afternoon, wandered around the beach and the headlands together, and stumbled upon a small park full of odd sculptures
Yesterday, Sunday 8th, I went for a wander around, and ended up in a street full of outdoor adventure type shops. I couldn't resist, and bought myself a new North Face jacket, exactly the same as the one the filthy theiving bogans had off me up in Hervey Bay. Given how expensive all that stuff seems to be here, it wasn't too bad really, and cheered me up no end. Went to cinema in the evening and watched Couples Retreat. which was entertaining. Today, Monday, I walked around the park near the opera house. It's been beautiful; blue skies and about 28 degrees. After walking about for a bit I laid down on the grass, and was promptly set upon by a little sparrow! It kept dive bombing me and attacking my head! Bloody birds... Then, walking back through the city this afternoon, I saw a man walking along, as casually as you like, with two goats on a leash. In the middle of the city. Goats. On a leash. In the city. What the deuce?!
Bought a cheap ticket to Melbourne, leaving tomorrow afternoon. From there I plan to get a ferry over to Tasmania. It takes about 13 hours, but is a little cheaper than flying, and besides, boats are more fun! Went for a look around some of Sydney's surrounding areas today, caught a ferry to Watsons Bay which is the entrance to Sydney harbour from the ocean, and is spectacularly beautiful and rugged. Some of the houses up on the cliffs are incredible. You get fantastic views of the city skyline from there
So tonight is my last night in Sydney, and I'm kinda glad to be leaving really, cities aren't my thing. I'm looking forward to getting my boots on and doing some proper exploring. Also hope to hook up with Rob and Ness who live in Hobart, I met them on the trip to Fraser Island a few weeks ago. I must email them now, while I remember....
