Friends and pirates
Sydney is proving itself to be a fun and friendly place to visit. We got to meet up with a cyber friend, Tara, who took us on a personal tour to one of her favorite places, the old Settlers Arms Inn and Pub in St. Albans.
It's the oldest pub in Australia, built in 1830. After a nice drive through some suburbs then farm land and bush, we crossed the Hawkesbury river on a little car ferry and then it was another 20km to the inn for lunch and beers. Here's Brien, Joe and I enjoying our first Lamington, a very traditional Aussie dessert.
This morning we went to the Maritime Museum at Darling Harbor, mainly because they're advertising a special exhibit on pirates. Turns out, it's a kiddie interactive exhibit with a kid sized slide which I of course had to slide down. We did get a few good photos though.
