Zeb and Eider Ride on Sydney Harbour

We are getting on a boat!   This is a hop on hop off ferry in Sydney Harbour.   It works just like the hop on hop buses in many cities. This ticket is good for 24 hours.   Here is a Sydney Harbour National Park.   This is Fort Denison.    IMG_0626At Fort Denison, tours are available and a wonderful buffet may be purchased and enjoyed, right in the middle of Sydney Harbour.   Fort Denison was built in 1855 for protection.   It was probably never used for that, but it is rumored to be a  place of torture for penal use.    Here is the entrance to Taronga Zoo.   To reach the zoo, humans take aerial lifts to reach to the top of this hill.

Our next stop was Watsons Bay.   IMG_0597This is a popular destination with tourists and the residents of Sydney.   The many restaurants attract humans and so many seagulls.   The beach looks inviting.   IMG_0615This is the Dunbar House.   IMG_0601This restored building provides breakfast and lunch in a beautiful setting.   Dunbar House is also available to rent for special occasions.   The next stop was at Manly Bay.   We went into the Tasman Sea to get here.

Passing this light house, the cliffs of Australia are very dramatic.

Arriving at Manly Bay, we realized this also is a popular destination.   There were hotels, many restaurants and lots of water activities.

We, like many others, really like Manly Bay.    We really liked this memorial to the lost ships and the lost humans.   We always appreciate memorials for those that have died.

Remembering those ships and humans that have been lost to us.

Our next stop was Darling Harbour.   Darling Harbour is home to the Sydney Aquarium.   This also is a great shopping and dining area.  We walked around and took a short refreshment break.

On the ride back Circular Quay, we passed Luna Park.   This is an amusement park.

We did not get off the ferry, but it was dark and we really liked this ferris wheel with lights.
