I stayed in last weekend and it was okay. I decided on Sunday to knock off one of the items I listed in my last blog about budget. I got the train to St James. Then I walked up to the top of Botanical Gardens and through the park to Mrs Maquire Chair. MK has been in Australia for 5 years and had never been so I decieded I’d show him one of the top tourist attractions in Australia. On the way I stopped at the Pop of Bar in there Busby’s for our Sunday treat. I had a gin and tonic looking over the Opera House and the harbour bridge.
After our drink we made it to the chair area which was surrounded by tourists. Then we decided to head back around the Opera House to see if we could spot the seal. There is a seal that likes to sunbath at the Opera House stairs. Unfortunately the seal was not home when we got there. We continued to walk round the Opera House and to Circular Quey where we joined the Yes Rally which was going on in the CBD. We stayed and listened to the speakers and watched everyone in there colourful outfits and amazing signs. We decieded to go home via Wynyard as Circular Quey was packed!
Train to St James: $2.56
Train from Wynyard $0.16
Gin and Tonic $ 10
So in total for the weekend I spent $12.72
Believe me it was so tempting to sit there all day and have some Sunday drinks…but for now this will do ☺️
