A night on the town

Yesterday was my wife’s birthday, and we celebrated by heading into the city to check out the lights of the Vivid Sydney festival. They boys weren’t with us – they were being babysat by my parents, so we were able to have a nice relaxed wander around.

We started the night with dinner at Wolfie’s, with a great view of the display on the Opera House.

After dinner we wandered along the waterfront to Dawes Point, to check out the lights on the western side of the Harbour Bridge.

Then it was back to Circular Quay to check out the Museum of Contemporary Art show, and the display which was projected on Customs House.

After buying an icecream, we headed over to have a look at some of the installations in First Fleet Park. We were a bit underwhelmed by these. Last year there were a few interactive ones that the boys could play on, but there was nothing like that this year.

We then headed back to the QVB to catch the bus home. We were glad to hear that the boys had behaved themselves for Grandma and Grandpa. It was a very nice night, with pretty much perfect weather (same as we had last year). We’ll be back next year, most likely with the boys.
