Vacation in Australia

Spent some time down under. The significant other had a business trip and I was able to tag along. Spent most of the time in Sydney and the surrounding areas of Manly Beach, Palm Beach, and the Blue Mountains.
Saw the Queen Mary II in the harbour. Saw Margaret Cho in concert. Saw Kangaroos, drank wine in the Hunter Valley wine region, got a sunburn in Manly Beach. They had funny signs like, "Manly Cosmetics"

Next time would like to get to the outback regions. Not enough time and too big of a country.

Gotta have a taste of my "vegemite sandwich" !

View from the Barrenjoey lighthouse to Palm Beach

Yeah, "the" place to pickup makeup !

Obligatory Sydney Opera House shot

Poker and me are having a little break for 30 - 2 down 28 to go !
