We have been ducking a cyclone for a week avoiding high seas. The downside is we missed a couple minor stops. Much more importantly we arrived Sydney in the morning instead of evening which gives us three full days in one of our favorite cities.
First thing we did was check into the Four Seasons for two nights. We have a very nice view of the Harbor with the opera house and our ship in the background. Unfortunately, the ship can only be tied up for a few hours and will be tendering which is why we split to stay in town.
After checking in we hopped on a ferry (which here is sightseeing on its own as well as transportation) and went to the world famous Doyles for an outstanding seafood lunch.
One of the great things about cruising is we get to meet so many wonderful people. Former travel companions and now good friends the Baers, picked us and took us to their wonderful home for a Shabbat dinner. Nice.
