We took advantage of a balmy Autumn evening to explore our City without the hustle & bustle of crowds & traffic.

With a near full moon we left Centennial Park and made our way to Kirribilli with a couple of short stops on the way at Farm Cove, Mrs Macquaries Chair, Observatory Hill to see the harbour under the night sky. We weren’t disappointed.

It was getting close to pizza time so we pushed on and picked up our nourishment and settled down under the Harbour Bridge. We were treated by an aerial display of fireworks from Luna Park as we watched ferries pass by with city lights as a back drop.

Time was marching on so we cut our journey short and left some unfinished business for another night, and made our way back via a different route along Kent St then cut through Martin Place before a short cruise through Hyde Park, Bourke St and the Albert (Tibby) Cotter Walkway bridge for the final leg back to Centennial Park.

There were smiles all round and we headed our separate ways after an evening with a difference....
