Sydney’s Harbour Bridge is 75 years old and yesterday was a whole day of birthday celebrations – fireworks, music, Aboriginal Smoke Ceremony, a flypast and a Ferry & Working Boats race, plus a chance to walk across the Bridge in a free silly hat. Which, clearly, I could not resist.
We did it at night, so our hats had little lights on the front. Super cool.
I roped in four new friends from my office and we all really enjoyed it. Plus its nice to be starting to hang out with people outside of work.
My first Aussie scuba dive on Sunday in Manly. Good group of people (apart from one bloke – there’s always one bloke who thinks he knows it all and turns out to be a liability once we get under the water and this one was no exception. Sigh. He was really racist too).
I saw my first ever Wobbegong and Port Jackson sharks! They were beautiful. Also saw cuttlefish, octopus, stingrays and a HUGE blue grouper. 🙂
