|After getting to the hotel, we looked out the window of our room and this was the view we saw. Not too shabby! Photo This is a view of it from across the water. Photo||Standing near the Opera house, I looked back towards the city skyline and took this. Photo|
|Ibis and Cockatoos wander around just like a common Robin would here. Photo1 Photo2 Photo3 I was used to seeing Ibis on the ground, and this is the first one I spotted up in a tree. Photo||Here are two views of the bridge that you can walk over. The tiny dots you see along the top are people. Photo1 Photo2|
|This is a night view of the bridge. Not great, but I couldn't remember how to set up my camera for night shots. Photo||A close-up shot of the front roof of the Opera house. Photo This "tilty" building, I just liked the look of. Photo I imagine it cuts down on the glare for a better view of the waterfront.|
|Look up in the trees and you'll see bats hanging down. This was in the Botanical gardens. I took a ton of photos of them Photo||Not believing what you're seeing? Here's a closer view. Photo And here's a view with one spreading his wings. Photo|
|Of course all the coolest bats hang out in the top of the tree in their little bat gangs. Photo||This is called a Dragon tree. There are myths about its "blood" (sap) being used for both medicinal and magical purposes. Photo|
|These are some of the flowers we saw. Not bad considering it is "winter" in Australia right now. Photo1 Photo2 Photo3||Flowers continued. Photo1 Photo2 Photo3 Photo4|
