Thursday, 9/26/13

We caught the now familiar train at Ingleburn Station and headed downtown to Sydney. Our first stop was at the Masonic Hall in downtown. Brian is a Mason so showed us around the building and museum. Then we caught the light rail to the Sydney Fish Market. This bustling place is where much of the fish caught in the area is brought to be processed and sold wholesale and retail. It is amazing sight and smell with every kind of seafood imaginable for sale. There are also many seafood restaurants co-located with the sales areas. You just pick out your fresh whatever, they cook it and you eat it! Wonderful!! We had a great lunch of soft shell crab, prawns, calimari, fish and chips and wine.

After lunch, light rail back to Paddy's Market landed us in a huge warehouse with row after row of merchandise of every kind. We shopped for awhile and then headed for China Town. Like China Towns everywhere, this place had shops and restaurants galore. We stopped for coffee and enjoyed sitting outside people watching and chatting. Then we did some more walking to get back to the train station for the ride home.

On arrival at Ingleburn Station, we decided to go back to the RSL Club to meet up with friends and have dinner. Vince and Sue were there and joined us for dinner. We had a great chat and enjoyed our time together.
