Happy Feet and Botany Bay
Sydney Travel Blog› entry 96 of 254 › view all entries
Yesterday we went to the pictures and watched Happy Feet - a fantastic animated film full of dancing penguins, had a good message with it also.
Today we went in search of Australia's history - we went to Botany Bay - it was quite different to the mill in Chorley! We went to the small seaside town of La Peruse and when the bus dropped us off we wondered where we had come - there was nothing around apart from some grass and a bus stop. As we ventured down towards the sea though we realised that it was acually quite a beautiful place. Much of the coast was full of rocks with interesting erosions on them, the sea was crystal clear and people were diving. There was also a white sandy beach on the edge of some very inviting looking water - not at all like the rough surf at Bondi.
In the afternoon Dave and Diane went up the sky tower which gave fantastic 360 degree views of Sydney and beyond. We were even able to see Sydney Cricket Ground and through the binoculars could watch the big screen showing the final ashes test.
It was Pam and Dave's last night in Sydney so we went back to Icebergs and had coctails and nibbles. We then called for something more substantial to eat at Gertrude and Alice's - the fantastic bookstore/cafe.
