Here are our top ten (through Monday morning):
1. Watching the sunrise over Manly Beach
We are staying with Mike's sister, Anne, and her family. They literally live across the street from Manly Beach. It's unreal. The morning after we flew in, jet lag woke us up at 4:30am. We took advantage of the extra hours to go on a walk around the beach.
2. Finding a water dragon
Every time we facetime with the boys, they want to know what animals we have seen. They were pretty excited about this water dragon we found on our first morning.
3. This view of Sydney
4. Going from Manly to Sydney by way of ferry
Salty sea breezes, incredible views--what more could you want?
5. This tree in the Botanical Gardens
I believe it's a fig tree. I want it in my backyard.
6. Walking on this path through Hyde Park
The entire length of the path was shaded by a canopy of trees. So picturesque.
7. Paddy's Market
Perfect for satisfying our need to purchase souvenirs.
8. Frozen yogurt in Chinatown
Following Anne's suggestion, we chose taro frozen yogurt, and we are still talking about it three days later (and popping in to check every other frozen yogurt shop we come across to see if they have the same flavor). It just hit the perfect sweet spot.
9. Hiking Palm Beach
A picture can't capture the beauty of this place.
10. Snorkeling at Shelly Beach
The water was the perfect temperature. We saw lots of fish. And no sharks. Win-win-win.
The more we see, the more we realize we could stay for a year and still not be able to see it all.
