Still strolling the Harbour-side, Sydney












I'll have to go back to see the flowers!


At Mrs. Macquaries Point, on the eastern shore of Farm Cove, is this carved rock ledge seat from where Elizabeth Macquarie, second wife to Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of N.S.W. 1810-1821, enjoyed the views to the harbour. Noted as Mrs Macquarie's Chair.

As always, another set of beautiful photos! You look wonderful sitting on the Mrs. Macquarie's Chair! And I love your photo of the magical fig-trees. That huge one must be very old. It's like the tree of LIFE!!!

Oh gosh, what a great set of photos! Love the one of the Sydney Opera House framed between 2 trees, then the 3rd one is wonderful, then you in the chair, and... the closeup of the tree (which looks more like something out of a movie that real life!) They are all wonderful! How lucky we are to get to see these!
