Sydney is, like all cities, choked with traffic so our foray to the famous Fish Market near Darling Harbour yesterday illustrated the point quite neatly.
We anchored Maunie in Blackwattle Bay next to the Glebe Bridge, which was apparently christened 'Madonna's Bra' by the locals when it was built.

By contrast, we buzzed across in the dinghy, parked it neatly under the bridge from the pontoon, and walked straight into the market
It certainly was busy but an amazing feast for the eyes!
When we got back to the dinghy with our bag of lovely king prawns, there was a crew member of a motor-boat, who'd clearly drawn the short straw, waiting to be picked up with lunch for the rest of the crew:
Shopping done and prawns safely stowed in the fridge, we walked into the city and visited the wonderful Botanical Gardens. It gave us an opportunity to view our chosen spot to anchor for New Year's Eve:
