So much to report this Christmas season! With a (Tasmanian) lobster Christmas eve dinner to a televised sing a long along with 70,000 or so other people called the ‘Carols in the Domain’, I have to admit that that I’m enjoying the down under xmas over the snow and cold in Boston. Just a short tram ride over to the Sydney fish market, the day before Christmas eve, we purchased a live lobster some pre-cooked “prawns” (aka shrimp) and a few uncooked for the lobster sauce. The sauce was EXCELLENT, as it was my first time making it. Christmas Eve day was filled with eating, drinking and a whole lot more of eating. Christmas day Lee and I headed to Bondi Beach to see all there is too see; so many people out in there in a variety of festive costumes from Santa to elves to the gingerbread man. Boxing Day we headed to Coogee Beach and watched the professional sailboats racing from Sydney to Hobart in the distance. Lee and I also were invited to a BBQ with some friends of his from London later that night. They live on the wharf in Wooloomooloo overlooking the Naval base. What a sight to have breakfast to in the mornings! Due to the rainy weather, today, the 26th, we spent looking around the Australian Maritime Museum after an hour or so at the Paddington outdoor market. I have until the 5th of January before heading back to work, so between going to the beach, sleeping a ton and a few days of tourist attractions, I’ll hold off writing more until after the new year. HAPPY NEW YEARS!!
