Uh, yeah... So, Joel and I went on a sunset dinner cruise around Sydney Harbour and took a lot of photos.
I had the salmon; he had the beef.
They were yummy.
Until they got cold.
Which was our fault.
Because we kept jumping up to take more pictures.
Then we got off the boat.
And took more pictures. (Shocking!)
I forgot how sleepy I get in the winter when the sun sets. I generally have to fight The Sleepies as soon as we fall back in the fall and the sun starts setting really early. Add jet lag to shockingly cold weather (when I was in Sydney in July '94, we ran around in t-shirts and jeans with only the occasional sweatshirt needed) and the fact that it was dark by 7 p.m., and you get one very sleepy couple.
We were in bed by 8:30 p.m. We rock.
To be fair, we had big plans to get up at 2 a.m. to drive to Pebbly Beach (located a convenient four hours south of Sydney!) to shoot sunrise. Pebbly Beach is famous for wild kangaroos (like the one in the photo with the joey in the entry below) that are pretty used to humans camping nearby in the national park. Kangaroos aren't nocturnal, persay, but like most wild animals, they're extremely active right around sunrise and after sunset. So we left Sydney at 2 a.m. to drive to Pebbly Beach. Because we're OBSESSED, but also? It was a once-in-a-lifetime chance. How could we not?
