Set sail on Sydney Harbour

Sydney sailing tall ships on beautiful sydney harbour

It's so good to get out for a little adventure in your own backyard isn't it. One of the many things I love about where we live is its proximity to the harbour and the city. This afternoon the kids left school at lunch time for a little history in action on our harbour. Thanks to some cheap tickets via one of those deal emails, we  set sail on Sydney harbour on a historic Tall Ship.  History coming alive for my kids as well as a beautiful afternoon on the harbour taking in Sydney's beautiful shoreline.

The clouds made a beautiful backdrop to the city

The sunshine made a spotlight over the harbour bridge.

I have to say though I think the kids preferred the ferry trip home. Aren't kids funny like that. Although the afternoon was very still on the harbour today and there was not much speed in our sails on the tall ship (just lots of people drinking champagne) so the fast ferry home probably was more fun.

Have a lovely Easter,
