I think there are going to be times when Nick and I become just a teensy bit competitive when it comes to being bossy! I don’t think it will be a problem but I do think there could be some fun!
When I first arrived in Sydney, Nick asked if there was anywhere I would particularly like to visit. I replied that I would like to go to Parramatta. I could tell that he and Krissy were somewhat surprised at this and they tried to dissuade me – but it didn’t work! (I’m not very good at being dissuaded!) So, yesterday, when our trip to Taronga Zoo didn’t go ahead, Nick dragged up the idea of going to Parramatta on the ferry and off we went.
The ferry journey was very pleasant. It is so much more enjoyable waching the scenery float by from a boat than when you are stuck in the thick of the traffic on Parramatta Road. Don’t you agree?
When we arrived at the information office where we enquired about the historic buildings in the town. The staff there were enthusiastic and helpful, suggesting we begin our visit by looking at the display housed in their building. That exhibit gave us a good background to build on. From there we returned to the riverbank to walk to the Governor’s House. It was a beautifully sunny day and the temperature was comfortable. The riverbank area is well kept and attractive, if a little too neat.
On arrival at the Governor’s house we went first to have a drink. As we sat on the veranda chatting, I saw a bird with a brilliant orange-red chest and green back and just had to photograph it.
So, Bossymamma was right about visiting Parramatta and Bossy Brother was wrong! Oh, yes!
