A day of family fun

Yesterday was the 1st of October, which marked my parents' 19th wedding anniversary. It's amazing to think that they have been together for so long and they are still going strong. My dad planned a day of family fun, which included a quick stop to the church they got married in. It is the same church that my dad's sister got married in and a few of my cousins were baptised in.

After a couple more stops, including the house my parents first bought/ the house I lived in until I was 4 and their wedding reception venue) was the Shangri-La Hotel, on Cumberland street in The Rocks. We had lunch at cafe Mix overlooking Circular Quay and it was lovely.

The Rocks is one of my favourite places in the city as it is so cultural and beautiful. Most of the buildings look the same as they did back when the area was first established. It is a very historic area and as designated driver for the day it was amazing to drive around and just take in everything The Rocks has to offer. It was surprisingly quiet as it was a public holiday, so it was extra nice to spend the day there. Plus it is in prime location as it is within walking distance of the Sydney CBD, Circular Quay and the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Here are a few photos I snapped whilst on my way to the Shangri-La hotel:

The structure at the end of the street is the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

I only managed to snap these two photos of my outfit during the day, but it's better than nothing.
