Did someone say white?
This was my view February 3, 2018, just before Mr B and I left for Australia. I thought I’d take a few pictures to show my pals in New Zealand. I’m not sure I ever did because once you leave winter behind, you forget about it pretty quickly 😀
Welcome back to the Boomdee Travel Log !
When last you visited, Mr B and I, had just checked into our hotel in Sydney. Did you enjoy the views? We sure did! It’s a bit of a change going from -30 C to +30 C overnight ! Just three airports, 17.5 hours and 13,290 km later, LOL
We had a couple of days to explore the beautiful city before our excursions to fabulous sanctuary’s and mountain parks began. Naturally I was eager to visit, what I consider, the most iconic site in Sydney, The Sydney Harbour and Opera House.
We photographed her beauty from every angle, sea to shore, on walks and on waves. It’s like a child opening up a great Christmas gift every single time. Here’s a view you might not see in a travel magazine. I took it aboard a ferry on our way to Manly Beach.
Pish, posh! I wasn’t at all ok with just seeing the outside. So to the Symphony we did go! It was a dark and stormy night! Literally 😀
But how fun to hide out from the deluge under her amble sail ! I’ll never forget it ❤
Once inside, we found our seats and to my surprise, they were awesome. We’d only booked the tickets the night before, so took what was available, ‘behind the stage’.
Honestly, I’ve never been this close to the music!! Travel tip: I actually think these are the best seats in the house. Sitting here, gives you a dead-on view of the Maestro while he frantically waves his wand in every direction and strategically points at select musicians when it’s their turn to contribute to the magic. His hair was mesmerizing as it flew back and forth with the music of Mozart!
No photo’s are allowed during the actual performances but I couldn’t help but think of Bugs Bunny, LOL !
“Hello ! It’s the 60’s calling, time to grow up”. Tee-hee 😀
After the Symphony, you’re treated to the night lights in Sydney Harbour. Everything glows, included ferry’s and yachts casually floating by. Just everyday life for the locals, but we were mesmerized.
Needless to say, the evening was completely magical. Well, for me anyways. Poor Mr B was some tired and I could see his eye lids struggling a few times. So sorry hon, but when will we ever again, have the chance to hear Mozart from within these big beautiful sails?
Do you have a favourite Symphony?
