|There were cockatoos everywhere|
|This was there "watering hole" where they drank from the water leaking out of the faucet|
|They would dig up roots from the grass so I decided to help them...quite tame and unafraid|
The most surprising thing was colony of Spectacled Flying Foxes aka Fruit Bats. They are huge. They were mostly sleeping, but every so often you would here a few of them fighting, some would stretch their wings, and every so often fly around.
Then we hopped on a bus and headed for Bondi Beach (love this 7 day pass!)

After lunch it was on another ferry to Darling Harbour which went under the Harbour Bridge for photo ops with the afternoon sun.
Once we got back to Circular Quay we walked up to the bridge pylon to get a view.
But there were too many for a nice sunset, and it was dull and gray, not like we saw when we did the Bridge Climb.
I have never mentioned the “sticker shock” we have had here when it comes to food prices. A can of Coke costs $4 in the store. We thought we would find a Pizza Hut or Dominoes and have a decent size pizza for a halfway decent price...silly us. There is a Pizza Hut down the street we walked to...small pizzas are 9" for $11, mediums are 11" for $15. We were going to suck it up and order two, but there credit card machine was “broken” and we didn’t have enough cash left, so we ate at Hungry Jacks, which is really Burger King.
