Our First Visitor

My brother, Nick, was our first visitor Down Under. And, thanks to him, we got out and saw quite a bit more of the city, tried some new foods, learned more about things we could cook in our limited kitchen, and just had a good time together! Here are just a few photo highlights from his visit:

Bondi to Coogee walk on Nick's first full day in Sydney.

Luna Park Ferris Wheel. This long exposure makes it look like an intimidating ride, but for any future visitors, it's not a ferris-wheel-of-death. Just a normal, see the sites, wheel.

The trip wouldn't be complete without a selfie. This one is on our way to the lighthouse at Watson's Bay.

Our upstairs neighbor graciously took us and a few friends sailing on the harbor.

We visited several additional museums, including the Barrack's Museum about Sydney's convict past.

Aaaaand, of course, some fancy chocolates to top off one of our evenings. I believe this was (yet another) evening where Nick cooked and made us a delicious dinner.
