On Monday, we visited the Sydney Fish Market and just typing those words, my mouth begins to water.  It isn’t that I haven’t been to wonderful fresh fish markets on the east and west coasts of the US but midwesterner that I am, my trips are few are far between.  Reminding me somewhat of Seattle’s Pike Place Market but the Sydney Market was all about the fish.  Busloads of Asian tourists pulled up and emptied out ready for lunch.  So were we!  We ate outside on a deck overlooking the water.  Sea gulls competed for our sushi which drove Julia a bit nuts.  After our sushi, Steph suggested we get some very big shrimp, cooked and ready to peel.  I didn’t think we could eat any more but more than a dozen of the shrimp disappeared very quickly. 

Views, another beach that once had a shark net protecting swimmers — Australians are rather brave about animals in and out of the water that are deadly dangerous — a tiny island and a peculiar little bird.

Another view from across the harbor.  Scott and Steph’s parents lived in the neighborhood on the water’s edge and enjoyed these views for many years.
