Where I stayed
At a short but interesting visit to the amazing Olympic site our first evening in Sydney was spent watching the Waratah’s absolutely destroy the Lions. 73-12. A few of us twits decided to get into the spirit by getting our faces painted blue. I’ve been a Canucks fan all my life… never painted my face (or any other part of my body for that matter) Canuck colors once. Can’t really explain what possessed us (other than the free part of the deal) to paint our faces for this game
We started off our first and only day in Sydney walking to the Opera House through Hyde Park. From there, the gimps watched our bags while the rest of the team went off to run across the Harbour Bridge. Honestly, I can’t believe I finished the run first. I thought Soccer Guy, Howie, Scooter, Josh (Bobby Lou), etc. were waaaaay faster than that. Actually they are. They just didn’t notice the short cut. Argyle Avenue. Yup. True story.
After a little walkabout near the Opera House… and after Blondie let loose with his monkey call from behind a shrub… we took the ferry over to Manly Beach for the day. After some touch rugby and American football on the beach the boys had the rest of the day to themselves. We all got the 3:30 ferry back over to the Opera House and the boys went their own ways. All of them made curfew (3 a.m.).
Sydney felt like a whirlwind. Absolutely beautiful city with an interesting history.
