A Colourful Eight.

After the rain and heat that's battered our city, Sunday was a gift.  Not too hot, not too cold.  The perfect conditions for getting out and about without getting soaked.

We stopped for coffee and a cupcake (not pictured as it was eaten well before this photo was taken) in between our morning errands.  The placement of the orange Haribo bear was Master SSG's idea.  I think he's onto something there.

Tourists in our own city?  As if we needed any further encouragement.  We took the light rail to Circular Quay, an activity and a destination that always spell adventure for me.  The bobbing of the carriage as it twists and turns through the city and the knots of people holding cameras and maps... their anticipation is contagious and never fails to make me relllaaaaxxxxxx....

The QVB saw in the Year of the Rat in style.  A pagoda painted in warm and regal red was festooned with golden cards bearing messages of good fortune and prosperity.

These golden rats cheekily chased each other down the central  hall of the building in search of this wedge of cheddar, I presume.

How cruel to then have the cheese boxed up in perspex!  So close, yet so far....

We stopped for tea at T2 and investigated what lay beneath the glass-domed testers.

The City of Sydney is gearing up for Mardi Gras 2020 and there were nods to rainbows in stores and on staircases.

Isn't the weather glorious right now?  Are you as excited as I am about the clear skies returning?

  1. Love the golden rats! And mardi gras prep. How cool is it when Sydney sends their ATMs all rainbow. Love that. Has that happened yet?
