Today has been just wonderful, we both have today off from bus driving, so what do you think we did? jumped on a bus into the city of Sydney!!!
We started off at QVB as I wanted to see the Xmas decorations and of course the Swarovski tree. The Swarovski tree stands 24 metres tall, has 60,000 lights and is decorated with 144,000 Swarovski crystal ornaments. The QVB is truly a beautifully restored building completed in 1898.
We were so exhausted from window shopping we wandered over to the Parlour Lane cafe located on Market Street for some yummy morning tea - it was delicious
David Jones department store each year has something special in their windows, these are just some of the displays . . .
It was then off to The Strand Arcade - designed and constructed in 1891- it suffered a devastating fire in 1977 and has since been beautifully restored.
So after all of that window shopping and eating we decided to catch a ferry - WOW what a perfect day for a ferry ride - also spotted in port the Voyager of the Seas - what a beautiful ship . . .
Well dear friends, that sums up my wonderful city of Sydney dressed up so beautifully for Xmas 2012.
Until next time - hope you also enjoyed your Saturday as much as we did!!
