I can’t believe our luck! It has done nothing but rain since we got here yesterday. It’s apparently the wettest start to April in 14 (!) years. I’m so happy we’re here to experience it.
At least the rain stopped long enough today so we could see both the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and some of the botanical garden before it begun again. You have to be happy with whatever you get, however little it may be.
It’s hard to find enjoyable indoor activities but we thought the rainy weather made it perfect for taking a guided tour of the Opera House. Since there was two shows on at the time we would have had limited access to the stages, so we gave it a miss.
Instead we stopped for a drink at the Opera Bar. Eating and drinking is a good rainy day activity. Today for example we have enjoyed a great breakfast at Le Monde in Surry Hills and had magnificent award winning pizzas and tasty mojitos at Hugos Bar Pizza in Kings Cross (even better was that they are only $10 on Thursdays). Both of the places are highly recommended!
If the bad weather keeps up there is a great risk we’ll all come back home looking like meatballs.
