December in Sydney

December in Sydney was a good month despite the sometimes miserable weather. Ok, not miserable compared to home but miserable compared to our expectations of December weather in Oz!

Just like last year it's been hard to get into the Christmas spirit here in the sunshine. The shops aren't decorated and there's no Christmas jingles being played - it's the opposite to home! But our apartment is decorated like santa's grotto with a fantastic real Christmas tree and tonnes of fairy lights.

We spent a few Saturday's exploring different parts of the city; Glebe, Newtown, Watsons Bay & out to Manly to meet some friends from the coast which was really great and of course there's been plenty of nights out...

There's some great markets in Glebe and Newtown is a really funky little area with cool cafe's. I love getting the ferry to Watsons Bay, passing by multi million dollar mansions that have places to moor their yachts right outside their door... Manly is a bustling little village with a really good beach, we had a lovely lunch there with Holland & Bex.
