Day 4!

This morning, after our first breakfast in the gorgeous Medina Grand, we all walked to the harbour where we would meet our cruise ship. While we waited for the boat to park in the pouring rain, we gave a performance of Kyrie, Cross the Wide Missouri, and Come Lasses and Lads at an Italian restaurant which was kind enough to lend us shelter. The cruise was amazing with our first human-eye (versus bird-eye) view of the Sydney Opera House, where we are to perform on Sunday!

Disembarking from the cruise, we then walked to Australia's Opal Museum and met Nessie, a 150 million-year-old dinosaur whose fossils had been Opalized. We were then allowed to buy some opal jewelry, if we so desired, which was all quite beautiful. One can never truly describe the way that opal shimmers, effervescent, in the light. We then got to see a beautiful miniature of Sydney and then also walked around Martin's Place for a few hours before we went back to the hotel for rest and dinner. We all look forward to tomorrow and its store of adventures!
