Day 3 had us heading off to the Taronga Zoo. (Thanks for the suggestion Loren). A quick ferry ride over (which was a little sight-seeing / tour on its own) and we had over 21 acres to explore.
Blow up Octopus attacking a U-boat at the maritime museum。
Sydney Harbour Bridge。
A lovely lady posing in front of the Sydney Harbour Opera House
We started with two majestic divers cleaning the seal tank. (Guess we got there almost too early) We then found the cute little penguins, both on land and in water.
From there we made our way up to the Gorillas. I should mention now that there was a considerable number of big spiders along the pathways. They all appeared out of reach (luckily), but what about all the ones we didn’t see!
A Gorilla family not amused that Amy is posing with them. Jealous maybe? Probably because she has her hand on the baby’s head!
Along the way we also met a lovely tortoise who was obsessed with the trainer. A pat on the head for a good job and a very slow sulk when she walked away. A chase ensued but as you could image didn’t get very far.
The wallaby’s were not very energetic. The one below seemed to be contemplating life. 生活地意义是什么呢？
The kangaroo’s were eating but were able to pose for Amy. Either that or they were running out of food and still hungry? (Amy says she could take them)
For lunch we decided to have something quick. A fish and chips out on a patio seemed simple enough. Our guard was down when one of us went for ketchup and the devil bird flew in hitting Amy in the head, knocking over her water bottle, and stealing the fish. So we had chips and chips for Lunch。
Another boat ride back had us return to Darling Harbour. At this point Amy was really regretting wearing a long sleeved shirt. (To her defense the weather forecast had it cooler with a chance of rain)
To make up for the heat we stopped and had some Gelato. Made our way over to Paddy’s market (Thanks again Loren) which Amy swears was like stepping into a Guan Yuan market (Cheap market in China)
Amy took me out to a traditional Australi….Chinese restaurant, Di Tai Fung. Yummy dim sum! Finally we caught the sunset up on the Sydney Tower Eye. Some really good views of the city too.
