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.

Hi, Heidi and Brien. Heidi, you don't know me, but I'm one of Brien's friends from his previous life in Boise. Hopefully he'll still be visiting Seattle for New Year's! We've apparently got a lot of catching up to do. Have a blast, you two.
