Christmas in Sydney

The thunder storm last evening cleared the heat and humidity. The temperature in Leichhardt is a comfortable 21 oC, due to peak at 28 oC by midday. 

Christmas Day is going to be a collaborative effort kicking off around lunch time. I need to make mince pies before everyone arrives. 

Happy Christmas.

Three new towers stand with puffed out chests on the left of this scene. This photograph was taken from the Dockside Pavilion, Darling Harbour. It will soon be dismantled as the new Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre is now open for business a short distance away. 

Darling Harbour is a popular tourist destination, night and day. Drawn by bars, restaurants, aquarium, Maritime Museum and countless other attractions, visitors flock to this former heavy rail and shipping port. 

A monumental six star casino and hotel will rise to the left of the new towers. There is a daytime picture of the site in the Casino 2 post.
