Australia, Part 2
Link to Part I if you missed it.
As I mentioned before, the day we arrived in Sydney a few of us went up a block to the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb office and got some tickets. Although I've done the climb before, I can't express to you how great it really is. Worth every penny. The photo below is from their website on a night climb. I prefer the day climb for the view, but you still can't beat that skyline.
Sydney has about 4.2 million people, but it doesn't seem like it when you walk through the city. Sure it's busy, but it's not insanely busy like NYC.
My Step-Son Matt kept pushing his luck with the Sydney Fuzz using his Cartman 'You must respect my authoritay!' impression. Below are some great shots my brother-in-law took. Of course none of us knew his date-stamp was on and showing the wrong date, but it's nothing a little photoshopping can't fix. I think he took the best shots throughout the trip.
You can't beat the Old Sydney Holiday Inn down in the 'Rocks' section of town. Since we stayed in the 'off season' and used a lot of our Priority Club points, it was almost free.

Every picture you show just makes me want to get there even more. What a place.
I can't imagine what an experience climbing that bridge must be.
Thanks for sharing all of the photographs.
