Darling Harbour, Manly Beach
Sunday morning was slept away, as we had a very late night before. Thankfully, Sydney offers a plethora of all day breakfast options. We walked to Darling Harbour, crossed the bridge to the north side, and located Concrete. The restaurant/cafe is next to a pleasant park, and had some decent breakfast items. The lamb sausage is still not our favourite thing to eat. Luckily the bacon is tasty.
Kevin located a pick up ultimate game online, so we headed to Manly on the ferry to find it. The weather has been cool and cloudy since Friday, so it wasn't ideal beach conditions for sunbathing or swimming. Kev played Ulti with some Aussies, and I chilled (literally) on the sand, watching the waves & the surfers.
We grabbed some dinner at a woodfired pizza joint, and we're again impressed by the low price of wine on the menu. A bottle of wine never topped $33 AUD, no matter what kind it was. We had a nice Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cab/Merlot ($26).
The ferry ride back to the city ended with a bang. A fireworks show went off beside the Sydney Harbour Bridge just was we were docking at Circular Quay. It was a nice way to end the evening.
