On this day, we visited “the Rocks” “The Rocks” is the historical part of the Sydney, and get it’s name from the fact that many of the buildings were made with sandstone when the first settlers arrived. It is a must see when you visit Sydney, and a favourite place of mine. We went to visit the markets, and look for some locally made crafts. My daughters and I wandered happily until we stumbled upon some chocolate covered strawberries. I knew instantly they would ask for this treat, and I did not plan on saying no. We shopped and looked a little more, and then back tracked to get our treat. I asked the girls if they wanted to walk to the park, and enjoy an impromptu picnic by the harbour. They agreed but the temptation to eat our sweet-smelling strawberries as we walked was difficult until we saw the Harbour Bridge and The Opera House. They were a great distraction. Once we arrived at the park, we found a patch of grass and finally enjoyed those strawberries. On one side of us was the Harbour Bridge, on the other was the Opera House. I never get tired of this view. It is a stunning city, and this is our 30 minutes in one of the prettiest cities in the world.
Now pop across the Tasman to see Sam’s 30 minutes in New Zealand. Sam Mothersole Photography
