Wonderful weekend

Just finished the nicest weekend with Stephanie in Sydney. Really relaxing time and not a lot of anything done except a Busy day on Anzac Day with parade watching in Sydney, ferry to Manly for lunch, cruising around the town for the afternoon then dinner at Hard Rock Cafe in Darling Harbour. Friday was spent going to the Blue Mountains and doing the explorer bus. We did all the scenic skyway, cable car, etc and a couple of walks as well as Devonshire tea. It was fabulous and the weather was stunning so could see for miles with only a distant blue haze.
Saturday we wandered around the city doing window shopping and looking at the cupcakes but decided we didn't need one so had chocolate waffles instead for lunch. We then did a couple of ferry / train rides to use up our ticket and queued for Jamie's Italian restaurant. Waited an hour for our table, while the queue outside seemed just as long. Had a trio of starters then entree sized main dishes and shared a dessert of lemon meringue pie. Felt that we had to waddle home afterwards the one block.
