10 days is not enough time to see everything in Sydney, but we sure covered a lot of ground! On Monday I took Grandma to Shelly Beach to splash around with Nolan while Ana was at school. On Tuesday we went to the Zoo and checked out the fantastic seal show and cute baby elephants playing in the water. Thank goodness for shaded seating, it was as hot as an oven. Grandma got up close and personal with Koalas, kangas, and our favorite friendly emu.
On Wednseday we went to Coogee, then in the evening I took her to Cremorne point park. This is one of my favorite parks as the view of Sydney harbor is picturesque, the grounds are manicured like a garden, and there is one of 70+ rock pools you can visit in Sydney. I have seen ten or so, but this one has a spectacular view. This website highlights several, but doesn't include the one at Cremorne Point. When we were apartment hunting our second choice was a modern 3br Mansionette at 72 Milson rd. The view was better than our current place, but the space and privacy was not as nice. I hope we come here to see the fireworks on New Years!
