The setting, staff and food were out of this world.
Chef Peter Gilmore is well known for his dessert, The Snow Egg.
Of course I had to have it, and it lived up to its reputation. Absolutely delicious.
Of course I had to try it. delicious.
We were lucky to be in Sydney while the light show was on. Sitting in the restaurant we had a clear view of the Opera House and the show that was displayed across the iconic building.
The harbour bridge was also lit up every night. Last time I was in Sydney, for the Australian Romance writers' conference, I did the bridge climb - right up to those flags at the top. I went during the day and had perfect weather so that the views were stunning.
As we are no strangers to Sydney we took a relaxed approach to this trip and mostly took trips to various bays on the harbour for lunch. And to finish off we had lunch at a restaurant on the ocean beach in Manly.
A wonderful week in a city I adore with my wonderful man. Doesn't get much better than that.
What would be your dream escape for a week?
Looks like you had a ball in my home town and awesome you were here during Vivid I live here and have yet to get into town when it is on :) We do have some lovely places to visit.
For me for a dream break would probably be a another cruise where I can be waited on and rest great food and entertainment :)
I can totally relate to the cruise idea, Helen. I hope you get to do this one day soon. Yep, Sydney is our favourite city to visit for a relaxed break.ReplyDelete
I'm thinking the land of the long white cloud is looking pretty good, Sue!ReplyDelete
Yep, it's not too shoddy either, AA. When are you coming over? This year, isn't it?ReplyDelete
Next I think. I can feel a retreat coming on, can't you?? ;-)Delete
Italy. Anywhere, anytime. (Although it feels like it takes a week to get there- can I have a month??)ReplyDelete
Definitely a month for you. Oh yes, Italy is so romantic.Delete
Sue, what a fabulous way to spend a birthday! Congratulations.ReplyDelete
Where to spend a week? Almost anywhere. Right now I'm thinking of the Blue Mountains in NSW with a roaring fire and a stack of good books and great food. Or maybe for something different, a sunny Greek island. A week's pure holiday would be fantastic.
A week anywhere away from the day to day stuff is heaven, isn't it, Annie?Delete
Great photos, Sue! The Opera House looks incredible with the lights laid over it - so pretty.ReplyDelete
My dream escape...? Hmm I could definitely go for a Caribbean resort holiday right about now :D
I'll wave my magic stick for you, Stefanie. I have a longing to see the Caribbean. I want to sit with a cocktail in hand while listening to the locals speaking. Adore their accent.Delete
You just made my mouth water so bad, Sue! Both at the delicious food and the thought of a whole week away somewhere. Sydney would do just fine, I think. Or, if I wait later in the year, somewhere beach-y.ReplyDelete
So glad you had a lovely time and that your DH spoiled you in such a delicious way. :-)
