Watsons Bay

By ColleenA
Good morning
Thank you so much for your positive comments about my butterfly images and to Isabel (Chinga) and Kathrynlouise for their UA's, I was so chuffed
Todays images are from Sydney....we took a 20 minute $12 ferry ride to Watsons bay for a fish lunch at the most amazing restaurant called Doyles.
It is such a lovely little bay with a pretty beach and beautiful houses, yachts and colourful little boats moored offshore. The versions are just other views of the bay, unfortunately it was a very cloudy dark day, but still hot and humid.... not ideal for beach photography
Have a nice dayGrinGrin

I have added 3 food images just for Peter (mollycat) after his comment about dreaming about food....thought I would whet his appetite

It looks a very affluent place to live, Colleen, and the fish that is being served up to those who can afford it looks simply delicious. Carol

Carol Sydney is listed as one of the most expensive cities to live in, in the world. I can attest to that especially when converting Rand to dollars.

You have done the place justice! Love V1 for the "feel" of the beautiful beach and those birds just at the waters edge...
But as for V5 and V6.... Hum... Yum Yum that's what I call a feast! GrinGrinGrin
My kind of food... I am going to save to go down under (Just for the sea food)!

A lovely look at how the rich live Colleen and Australia seems to have it all
for those who work hard. The fish dishes look delicious and I can't help thinking Mickbee
might want to make a comparison with a Glasgow fish supper!
The duller light has given you a better capture of the gulls than some I took when it
was very bright.

What a beautiful place Colleen, you've definitely done it justice in these shots. You are certainly making us envious by teasing us with these, as it is cold and grey in England and always seems to be raining. It's like ground hog day when you get up and look outside the window each morning!Sad
