More to see in My World Tuesday.
One day I felt bored so I went out for another walk about to the city. This time, I aimed to satisfy my curiosity about the Government House of New South Wales, the Official Residence of the Governor General. This place is more for Ceremonial Events than anything else though it is open to the public for scrutiny as part of a Tourism Program.
I took a train to Circular Quay and thought of using a short cut instead of going around via Sydney Royal Botanical Garden. So up I went by these stairs and crossed the road ...
It's a bit fair way to walk as there were many more to see on the way until I reached this iron gate.
As I entered the gate, of course, I was intercepted by this sign which is too self-explanatory. Oh, it's free by the way. So there's no worry there. Not that I'm a miser. Can you see the castle over there? Yeah, those people went in for an inside guided tour and I was the last to get in.
After the guided tour, we were allowed to roam around the garden to savour the view of the harbour. Yes, this area is part and parcel of the whole shebang including the Opera House and the Botanical Garden. It's a beautiful place with a breathtaking SCENERY!
This old freak tree is as old as the building or the castle. I paid more particular interest in focusing my camera down to its base. Such artful psychedelic distortions.
After spending ample time roaming around the promenade and taking shots here and there, I went the same way back and this is what I saw on my descent which is actually the Circular Quay - the wharves of local ferries to cruise around the harbour and any nearby watery suburb Well, there are hundreds of photos to show. I'll post them some other time. Hope you enjoy seeing what's in my world!
