International Fleet Review 2013

It was a good day to relocate my camera! Sydney put on a beautiful day for our outing to enjoy the Australian Navy's International fleet review. And thus began our long weekend activities. The short train trip was followed by a circuitous walk around the city to get to Mrs Macquarie's chair where the Yeohs were waiting with our picnic spot.

Our core muscles received a full workout as we balanced to remain on our spot on the steep hill. The advantage of being on the hill was that everyone was afforded a good view of the happenings on the foreshore. Fortunately Uncle Kwan came to the rescue with calories on a stick, and sugar in a cup AKA deep fried potatoes lathered with salt and frozen coca cola.

We enjoyed our afternoon and began the long journey home to watch the night time spectacular on tv...
