Sydney, Day 1


"...except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."
We left Brisbane on June 27th and flew to Sydney where we would spend the last few days of our trip to Australia.  After arriving and getting settle at the Rocks Youth Hostel, we went for lunch and some of the coffee we had come to love and now miss very much.

We then walked down to the harbor and after finding our way took the harbor taxi to Manly and Manly Beach.  The date was rather wet and cold but we walked the Marine Parade and watched the surfers before returning to our accommodations after dark.
