Sydney Claire

It was great to be back in Sydney yesterday after such a long break away. We'd came up with Claire for a very special reason, but a long lunch on a perfect Spring day in Coogee was the first thing on our agenda.
 Sydney looks spectacular; the Jacaranda blossoms are all at their peak.
The Stanley Street Gallery in Darlinghurst is presenting an exhibition of Claire's paintings over the next few weeks and we'd come up for the Thursday night opening.  Claire and I prepared ourselves for the festivities with a glass of champagne at the Verde Bar in Riley Street before the formalities began at the gallery.
Claire's work looks beautiful in this space (of course) and we met some interesting people at the opening, including some well known faces.

We're so proud of this incredibly talented young woman........ 
Today dawned another perfect Sydney day so we started the day perfectly with breakfast at Barzura's and a walk along the beachfront promenade. 
Claire spent the morning at the gallery while Rob and I did a bit of shopping. We can't get over how beautiful this city looks.
