July Fourth in Sydney

It’s Independence Day (or almost) in the United States. And we are incredibly lucky to have my mom and Aunt Cathy visiting us in Sydney. So what did we four Americans do to celebrate the holiday? Well, you’ll see we packed quite a bit into our day!

We started the day at the local farmer’s market for shopping and breakfast, followed by a ferry ride to Circular Quay.

With the beautiful weather, it was a great day to take some pictures at the Quay.

Obligatory jumping picture. Check out the air these two ladies are getting!

We then strolled through the Rocks and up to the Observatory.

Says it all. And for those who can't read the subtitle, it says, "See why we're all made of stardust."

After a lunch we headed to Bondi Beach to stroll along the beach cliffs and, of course, to test out the winter water.

We shopped a bit then had a delicious tapas dinner at Mojo Tapas. After dinner we star gazed and successfully located the Southern Cross (thanks to the star map we picked up at the Observatory earlier in the day).

We're showing off the day's purchases. I am wearing Dan's new sweatshirt because I was a bit chilly during star gazing. Hey, it got down to 17C (63F). Gotta love Sydney winters!

A great end to our first week with wonderful family!
