Thanks for posting the pic! I stayed here for 3 weeks in 1991 when I got out of the US Navy, and it was possibly the funnest 3 weeks of my life. Sydney Harbor is comparable to San Diego... the gum trees, the blue water... most beautiful harbors in the world. San Diego has the Coronado bridge, but it doesn't have the Opera House! I met a lot of tourist types from Britain, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and a few of us 'Yanks.' I made some friends from Germany and Scandinavia as well, but the Aussies were absolutely wonderful, treated me well. I remember sitting in one of the pubs, right about where this was taken, and one of the local surfer types traded me a T-Shirt right in the pub... I was a submarine nuclear plant operator in the Navy, was wearing a gaudy T-shirt that said "Hell no, we don't glow... Nuclear Power is our friend!" One never forgets things like that. Thanks again, Dave.
