The Big Smoke..

... was actually not very smokey at all, but quite lovely.   I especially noticed the contrasts between the tall glass buildings and the old.   And I loved the reflections.

Talking of old,  In the car on the way I mentioned to my companion that I'd given her age of 78 out to the world, and she just smiled enigmatically.* 

We stayed right in the heart of the city, and from our balcony had a lovely view right down the main shopping road Queen Street and even a peek of the Sky Tower Casino.  
The orchestra was fabulous, the full moon had risen when we got back to the hotel and this morning I spent a blissful few hours in the art gallery.

* It turns out she is actually 85!


  1. I'm 57, but a lot of the time in kindergarten I feel more like I'm 5. On my Laser sailboat, I feel about 25. On my bicycle, I feel about 45.

    I don't know if numbers really mean all that much.

  2. That's a lovely set of numbers Dan!
