Back into the City today. We caught the Ingleburn train again into Sydney. It dropped us off at Circular Quay which is right by the ferry terminals. So we hopped a ferry to Manly. We enjoyed a great ferry ride across the harbor to Manly (about a 1/2 hour ride). Manly is a beach town which reminded me of Santa Cruz, California. It was a two block walk to the other side of the penninsula to the Ocean side with a great beach. We stopped for lunch at Manly Pizza & Wine. Wonderful pizza! For dessert, we stopped in at Yogurtland.

On our return to Circular Quay, we walked back over to where the Aboriginie was playing music. We took a short movie and some photos and had a chat with him. His name is Turtle Tamwoy. We since learned that he is considered one of the best Aboriginal dance and cultural performers in Australia. He has been on over 100 TV shows and played live performances all over the world. He was a very friendly guy.

We took the train back home and Pam cooked a very nice Salmon and Asparagus Quiche. Wonderful. We are so thankful to be staying with Pam and Brian. What great friends!
