Farewell to Sydney!

This morning, we woke up with the Dawn Princess anchored at White Bay Cruise Terminal in Sydney, Australia.

Our twelve day cruise had come to an end.  We spent yesterday and last night saying our farewells to our new friends.

This was definitely a trip of a lifetime with many wonderful memories.

Leaving the terminal, we headed back to the Hilton knowing today would be our last day in Sydney.

We spent the day enjoying Hyde Park, as well as touring St. Mary's Cathedral.

Hyde Park is a 40 acre park in the central business district of Sydney.  It was named after the original Hyde Park in London.  We walked through the park enjoying the summer temperatures.  Children were laughing and playing with giant soap bubbles.  Men were playing chess on the lawn with over-sized chess pieces.

We followed the path of the beautiful colorful flowers to St. Mary's Cathedral.  The large cathedral was begun in 1868 and completed twenty years later.  Its' size and architectural design is beyond words.

We look forward to visiting again.  It is truly a remarkable country!


  1. Been to Hyde Park a few times, the first time was on a school excursion when I was in high school, Sydney is a nice place to visit but wouldn't want to live there
