Sydney Harbour and The Rocks

We were dropped off at Macquarie Street for another great photo opportunity to view Sydney Opera House up close and personal!

Even though we have seen the Opera House umpteen times and were getting a little sick of it, the gloriously sunny weather more than made up for it! It was a beautiful day with clear blue sky!

After getting enough photos of the Opera House, we walked towards Circular Quay for a harbor cruise with Captain Cook Cruises!

Around Circular Quay, we also spotted street art and performers! Isn’t it cute!

We were given twenty minutes to roam around before departing on the cruises and I ventured further to The Rocks Market!

It is a tiny market, five minutes away from Circular Quay and on Friday, it is a food market. During the weekends, The Rocks market transformed into a handicrafts and knick knacks market. It is a pity that we didn’t get a chance to see it during a weekend!

At the food market, they were selling gourmet Kebabs and the queue was really long! I regretted not trying them! There were other random stalls too selling homemade chocolates, olive oils, tea and mini cupcakes!

I tried a lemon mini cupcake and had a sugar rush! Yums!

There is also a Museum of Contemporary Art!

Now back to the Captain Cooks Harbour Cruise! Even thought the sight was beautiful, we found the cruise a little too long. We were basically sun tanning at the deck, lazing, chit chatting and enjoying the sight and company! Now that I think about it, it wasn’t that bad. Haha.
