After having just a little too much fun last night I woke this morning wanting nothing more than to curl up on the lounge and pretend I had no responsibilities for the day. But we had Plans and there was to be no wriggling out of them! We dropped David at a friend’s place for the day and off we went to the city to visit the Art Gallery. It’s amazing how much difference it makes to be one kid down, everything seemed so much easier, even when Tom decide the exhibition we’d gone to see (Paths to Abstraction 1867-1917) was the most boring thing ever.
The Art Gallery of NSW
Across the road from the art gallery is a big park called The Domain
, the far side of it is a big open space which is used for events such as concerts and political rallies and the like, but along Art Gallery Road there are gardens and masses of huge fig trees.

We went back to the car and drove over to The Rocks
to have lunch at Löwenbräu Keller
where I didn’t take any photos but was amused by the waitress greeting Adam with a big smile of recognition and “Hello, it’s lovely to see you again!”
We then wandered around the street markets that are on every weekend in The Rocks. We visited the honey shop and bought a sample pack of different honey varieties, Tom bought an Orthoceras from a bloke selling fossils, we spent a few pennies at a couple of lolly stalls and at the chocolate dipped strawberry seller, and popped into the Guylian Cafe for coffee and chocolates before heading for home.

We came home in time to fit in a walk to one of the local parks.

As I write this post there is bread baking in the bread machine for us to have with some soup for dinner, along with Adam’s homemade ginger beer, and after that we’ll be
fighting over sharing out the chocolate dipped strawberry skewers we bought at The Rocks Markets.

Don’t forget to head on over to Unknown Mami’s place for a look at everyone else’s Sundays in My City offerings!
