Sailing, Sushi, Sunsets & Sydney





We got offered the boat again, and this time we took four families with us, so the kids, from teens to primary outnumbered us.


We opted for easy catering, grabbing prawns and sushi platters and set off after 1 for a lazy afternoon lunch. We swam, jumped off the side and then the highlight, heading home into the sunset.


If you are a visitor to this fair city, and it is truly beautiful, you must find a way to get yourself out on the harbour. A ferry, whale watching, the tall ship twilight cruise. Hire a boat if you're loaded. Whatever you do, you need to see the icons from the water. That's the real Sydney Harbour.






It is impossible not to love life as you bob about on the water, enjoying a champagne Sydney day!

This boat was near us, and I will admit to having boat envy - or should that be slide envy?

  1. OMG, that slide is so cool! I have slide envy too. As for Sydney Harbour, I agree, there is no better way to see it than from the water.

  15. Wow, what a beautiful way to spend the day with friends, we love hiring a boat in one of our local harbour towns here in Cornwall. I bet jumping in and splashing about made the kids day, I know my lot would love to do that. The sights from your boat really do make the day look even more spectacular.

    Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.
