Moruya to Sydney

Saturday, 3 March 2012

We awoke somewhat earlier than necessary had breakfast and counted down the time. Our friend arrived at 0830 to drive us into town where we waited for the coach to Sydney. The trip to Sydney was quite routine, we've travelled it previously. Stops at Batemans Bay for morning tea and Nowra for lunch added to the actual travel time making a total of seven hours.
Traffic was heavy as we entered the city and the rain intermittent. There were crowds of people at Central Station arriving to watch or take part in tonight's Mardi Gras Parade.
We walked the two blocks to the hotel we;d booked on-line. The Royal Exchange on Chalmers St. "Reception" is the public bar and the check-in process quite simple, the manager copied my driver's licence and had me sign it acknowledging that I'd 'checked in'. Credit card paid the $130 for the night. The room was much better than expected, a sitting room and separate bedroom. Tall ceilings added to the feeling of space.
We met up with our daughter at Darling Harbour for dinner, she and husband were in town for her job. We ate at the Hard Rock Café. Food was excellent but the constant loud sound (music ??) made any conversation difficult. It was certainly an 'experience'. We waited at the light-rail station for our return trip to Central Station but after waiting about half an hour there was an announcement that there would be an extensive delay to the service. We opted to catch a taxi and we were back at the hotel in short order.
Quite ready to turn in for the day.
One more sleep to go !!
