Sydney, Australia

First stop:
Sydney, Australia.

Sydney is fast pace with busy bodies.
We enjoyed the harbor every day and every night.
We took a boat ride through this awesome body of water.
It was pretty magical.

The harbor bridge ended up being our favorite.
Three weeks out of the year Sydney has light shows on different buildings.
The streets are full of music and entertainment just to celebrate "Sydney."
We didn't really think we'd be that impressed by the Opera House.
WRONG.
Obsessed is more like it.
It was fun to see the sails lit up during their annual light show.

Once we got enough of the city life we headed up to Jamison Valley.
On the way we stopped by the Animal Park where we fed
Kangaroos and Wallabies.
It was kind of gross but kind of cool.

After our little stop with the animals we finally got to our destination.
Our main reason for this day trip was to see the
"three sisters."
We were devastated when we arrived.
We couldn't see a darn thing!
We were so bummed that we weren't going to see the famous SISTERS.

We decided we'd grab lunch and see if the fog would clear.
Within an hour the clouds started to break.
And we were able to see those sisters.
Do you see the three peeks in the back?...There they are.
We were able to ride the steepest railway through the valley once the sun came out.
We were so happy mother nature did her job!

We were so glad that we waited for the sun.
It was worth the wait!
It was just a fabulous day!
There is more to Australia than a harbor, and we didn't even touch the surface of what it has to offer.

Were off to Cairns, Australia where we will scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef.
