Sunny Days on Sydney Harbour

After a lovely few days exploring Manly and Watson's Bay we headed across into the city on the ferry and set about exploring gorgeous Sydney in the sunshine!

After waking up for a breathtaking sunrise we started our day with a delicious, fresh breakfast at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel overlooking the Harbour.

We paddled in the water at Watson's Bay whilst waiting for the ferry to the city...

We loved the ferry ride across the Harbour, it was so clear, flat and such a beautiful day!

Dan was so happy to see the Harbour Bridge and Opera Bridge for the first time!

We were very happy once we arrived back at the hotel to have this delicious plate of sweets delivered to our room!

We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing by the pool before watching the beautiful sunset whilst having a few drinks at the Executive Lounge. We are absolutely loving the trip so far and really enjoying exploring the city!
