Our Sunday in Sydney

I am so proud of my children! We walked for many kilometres today, as we have also done every day of our stay in Sydney. They have never once complained about having tired legs or whinged!! Michael and I have been physically had it, and the kids keep powering on.
We walked the couple of kms to the Sydney Tower, toured through there and admired the views. Afterwards we walked through Hyde Park, visited St Mary's Cathedral, walked through The Domain, visited the NSW Art Gallery, strolled around the Royal Botanic Gardens, walked out to Mrs McQuarries Chair, back around to The Rocks and then headed home via train.
Every day we have been out of our motel room by 9am and haven't returned until at least 5pm. Long days, but so much fun! We are staying in a 2 bedroom apartment in Breakfree on George. A great motel - thoroughly recommend it. We saw the PMs wife strolling through the Art Gallery.

Megan and Ben riding the escalators. They love them.

We saw this creation at Hyde Park. It is made from soft drink cans, and plastic cups. It looks a bit like a Tassie Devil......?
