Sydney Reunion

Our sisters' Sydney reunion weekend was a bit later this year than usual.  Too late for Sculpture by the Sea but not too late in the year for all the other Sydney delights on offer - plus a chance for some quality time together.

We started off with a celebration drink on Thursday evening and some shared plates on the rooftop terrace of the oh so hip and happening Coogee Pavillion.  Although we enjoyed our time there it was almost a relief to find our favourite Korean place afterwards for some comforting Bibimbap and some oh so fresh sashimi for our real meal that night (and to be able to hear each other speak!).
On Friday we took a train journey through the beautiful Ku-Ring Gai Chase National Park, north of Sydney to Woy Woy on the Hawkesbury River. Why why did we go to Woy Woy you might ask?  For the seafood lunch of course at Woy Woy's Fishermans Wharf!  After our time there we decided there is little other reason to go to Woy Woy!
We ended off a lovely day together with a movie at the Randwick Ritz - the new James Bond film - Spectre....amazing special effects and a very watchable Daniel Craig ..what more could you ask of a James Bond film? 

Us girls spent the day together on Saturday, shopping and a long lunch while the boys had a day trip across the harbour to Manly Beach.  They enjoyed their long walk past the main surfing beach, south east to Shelly Beach, and then through to the harbour side cliffs of North Head.

We could only find three nights to spend together this reunion visit - way too short - but Christmas and end of year work commitments have created pressures this year. We were very sad to say goodbye on Sunday!
