Well, all we can say really is that you had to be there. A reserved , ticketed area in the Botanical Gardens, infront of the Opera House for 4 million bucks worth of fireworks and no rugby scrummage!
44 Degrees !!
Well there was never really any doubt that we were always going to remember the final day and night of 2005, but blimey did 2006 ever get off to a hot start. After a deserved lay in there was nowt for it but to get off to Manly beach and try and keep cool. We decided to hire some Boogieboards and get into the water. The surf and swell was pretty scary at times but we just about managed to not look totally incompetent.
The ferry ride back to Circular Quay was a sight to behold and with one last day planned around the shops and then finally a stop at the Aquarium the sun was setting on our month long trip away and fanastic as it was, we were both ready to get back to our own place and just do nothing for a few days !
