The stunning sights of Sydney unfold after flying from Cairns, and our downtown hotel provides a room with a view, or rather a room with “the” view: Sydney’s dazzling Opera House.
Without leaving the hotel our sightseeing has begun. From the 31st floor atop the Intercontinental the treat of a fabulous sunset unfolds beyond the city and creates a backdrop in the Blue Mountains that we will visit in three days’ time.
I’m all about great sunsets, but the view from this hotel perch has much more to offer.
Later we walk the docks of Circular Quay (pronounced “key”) to view the icons from many angles. Sydney is a gal with a very photogenic face, and instantly I think, “If I had a nickel for every photo that’s been taken in this place …”. Shortly after sunrise tomorrow that thought will become, “If I had a nickel for every photo I’ve taken in this place …”
There isn’t really much verbiage that can enhance the portrayal that nighttime central Sydney provides in photographs, so I’ll just say to all: “good night!”
