The love for travel and photography, has carried me and my husband to various nooks and corners of the country. While I indulge in landscape photography, his love lies in capturing portraits and bringing life to streets. This Valentine’s day was no different from any other weekend, when we travelled around Sydney, exploring places and relishing different cuisines.
I am getting better at waking up early in the morning. I was up at 4:45, and as always, struggled to get my husband off the bed. He did manage to walk into the bathroom, half an hour later. By the time we started from home it was already 5:30 am. We planned to watch the sunrise at Coogee Beach, which is a good 25 km away from my home.
The sunrise time in Sydney is slowly changing. Two weeks ago the time of first light was 5:45 am, which is 6:05 am now, while the sunrise time has changed to 6:30 am. Good for me, I would no longer have to wake up at an unearthly hour. 🙂
The sky was absolutely gorgeous. It looked so peaceful and bright, as if preparing for the sun to rise from the horizon.
I wanted to get some Yoga photos too, but could hardly keep my balance on the wet sand. Ahh so embarassing!!
We hung around the beach for an hour, watching a lot a people working out and running, and then drove to Victoria Park where we had our breakfast at Gardners Lodge Caffe. There’s a lovely lake near the caffe with beautiful ducks and Pelicans swimming around.
And of course there has be a cake!!
The weather was quite windy when we reached Circular Quay and by the time we reached Dawes Point, it had started drizzling. Overlooking the waterfront was the exhibition of The Lantern of Terracotta Warriors, as a part of Chinese New Year celebration.
Blame the strong winds, but my umbrella broke. Psssttt that’s just another excuse to go shopping 🙂
