A Night at the Opera


My dear daughter and son-in law gave us tickets to The Beetles Back to Back concert at the iconic Sydney Opera House. Our journey started and ended with a train trip to town which brought us to Circular Quay.

Sydney is a panoramic city set on a wonderful harbour. The buildings behind the ferry are on the site of the original settlement of Australia in 1788. The city has undergone change but remains a place enjoy and spend time with the family.

Another icon in the background as the family finishes ice creams and wanders along the harbour to the Opera House.

Seated and waiting for the concert to start. Everyone from the 7yr old to the 60+'s enjoyed the music.
The first half of the show was Sgt Peppers' and Abbey Road completed the programme.

An amazing evening of memories and family.

2014  is already has some events and challenges pencilled in and this was a special opening to the year.

Hope you are all well happy and looking forward to 2014.

What a brilliant start to the year!! It would have been wonderful to hear all those great songs performed in the Opera House. It's lovely to see all your family. Your photos of Sydney are beautiful with the grey clouds.

How special! It would be fantastic to attend any performance at the opera house, but that sounds great!

1776 was a bit more important to the US than Aust, although it did lead eventually to England sending people here a few years later (1788).
