Three exotic birds

These three guys live in Victoria Butterfly Garden - quite magical place some photos of which I'll add in the future. This is kind of place where grown-ups wander around with childish smiles on their faces.

This is Leo - green parrot with piercing eyes:

This is green turaco:

Finally the most sociable one. You can often find him doing one of two things: playing with someone's shoelaces

or feeding fish:

Dreamy town of Sidney

Favorite place for stroll along the seaside,

amazing views along the way

stroll toward Sidney Marina

and marina with beautiful yachts

Walking those cute streets of typical resort town
don't forget to drop by to Janet's Special Teas; if you are a fan of a good tea you are guaranteed to find quite a few to your liking. Just ask Janet to open some of these jars and heavenly smell will help you chose:

Oh, and take another walk near the ocean shore at the sunset

Shiny shiny stuff

There is something very pretty about glassy shiny handiwork. Judge for yourself

Fisherman's Wharf

This is quite an interesting place, especially if you haven't lived on the ocean. Look at these houses. Yup, they are floating ones. Boats are parked next to them as we park our cars on our driveways.
There are stores and restaurants,
whole streets,

ships, historic and working ones, many go out to a sea daily and return with fresh catch.
To envision this lifestyle, imagine sitting on this deck watching floatplanes landing and taking off:
Some don't even look like houses:

Residents must be very patient folks to put up with endless tourists snapping their photos (yeah, much like these you are wieving), feeding seals
and just imagine this endless bustle right outside your porch:

If you are intrigued - well, one of those houses above has "For Sale" sign, noticed?
