Sundays in My City – Sydney Aquarium

Unknown Mami
Hosted by Unknown Mami

We had a slow start today, a late brunch and kids who didn’t really want to leave the house. Adam persuaded us into dragging ourselves out to the car and off to the city despite the grey skies and rain. It’s kind of handy that I married him, if we had to rely on me for family outings we’d probably never go anywhere.

We settled on going to Sydney Aquarium

Across the other side of Darling Harbour is the National Maritime Museum which is currently home to the replica of The Endeavour, on which Adam is booked to sail as a crew member on one of the legs of its upcoming circumnavigation of Australia. Adam will join the ship in Brisbane in May and sail with them to Gladstone.

I gather there will be hammocks and being on watch and having to learn the ropes involved. If there is any climbing of rigging I do not want to know about it.

Don’t forget to visit Unknown Mami’s place for a glimpse of Sundays all over the world!

  1. Sometimes I feel like I could stay in my house for ever. LOL The trip to the aquarium looks like a lot of fun. Those leggo sculptures are fab! and I've never heard of a dugong before. THey look a lot like the Manatees we have here in Florida, but with bigger snouts. cool. very cool.

  2. I totally want to see dugongs. Adam is very brave and I am slightly jelly even tho' I am not a sailor type. I'd love to have a ride on it though. We visited it when it came to Auckland.

  3. I love those lego sculptures! So much fun. I know what you mean about rainy days and not wanting to leave the house! Sometimes you just need a break, right? : ) A good 3 hour nap!

  4. Good on you for going out. I guess you can call this Serendipity Sunday – unless, of course, Adam knew all along that they brought LegoLand to Darling Harbour.cheers,Malyn
