Welcome to "C" of the alphabetised month!  If you have not seen or heard of the AtoZ challenge, click the logo on the sidebar to find out more! This blog is not about words, but about pictures telling the story. That said, for this month, there will be a few more than usual typed items and occasionally more than the usual one image per post. 

In Sydney's CBD, or more specifically, Darling Harbour, you can find the Chinese Garden of Friendship. I was working not far away from here when it was being constructed. Quite the mess it was. My goodness, though, once done, it added a place of such tranquillity and Calm to the City Centre. It's an absolute 'must' on your tour if you ever get to visit Sydney.

My sister came in 2006 and I recall we spent near two hours here with very few words exchanged - so blissed out! 

We had fun being both here - and then going into the wider Countryside of NSW. Gotta love a scene with a Coo or two in it!

It would be remiss of me not, here in the letter c, to acknowledge the Australian Capital Territory and the city of Canberra. Here's a token picture (and I remind you, many of these are scanned photos - of between 15 and 30 years age!) That's the Parliament Building.


  1. I LOVE your 'C' post....love that Chinese Garden of friendship, and I LOVE that photo of the big tree with the cows passing by.

  2. Coo's always welcomed. Lovely pictures.

  3. Thanks for letting me know about this. I missed this, when I was there in 2019 December. I don't know when I will be able to go to Sydney again. I will surely check this place out. I have saved the link of this post in my notebook.

  4. Hello,

    The Chinese Garden looks beautiful. Lovely photos! Have a happy weekend!

  5. I have very fond memories of Canberra during my first visit to Australia in 1998.

  6. YAM so amazing all the things I have learned about you just from 3 letters.
    Hugs HiC

  7. I love the circlethat looks into the peaceful surroundings. i think your scanned photos are beautiful and perfect . my favorite is the Coos of course of Course.

  8. I had no clue the Chinese Garden of Friendship was in darling harbour. We will have to check it out the next time we are in Sydney (which might be a while due to the pandemic and airline tickets being way too expensive)
