She's Back

Somewhere in this melee is the small, pink yacht of young Jessica Watson, the youngest person to sail solo non-stop and unassisted around the World. The photo was taken from the rooftop beer garden of the Glenmore Hotel in the Rocks where several Sydney, and two Brisbane bloggers met for a very pleasant lunch. At the time the lunch was arranged (thank you Julie) we had no idea we would have this spectacle to watch. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to be amongst the crowd waiting on the steps of the Opera House - she was due at about 11.30am and finally arrived at something like 3pm.

And a very nice lunch it was. Great to meet all the Sydney bloggers.

Sounds like a perfect day then. Meeting bloggers and welcoming home young Jessica.

It WAS a perfect day, Steffe. And this Ann is a really good shot of the whole shebang coming at us down the harbour!

This is a great shot Ann. The boats put on a terrific show for us. :)

A great zoom Ann, probably a better view than those on th eOpera House steps.

It was a great view and an exciting day meeting you and the other bloggers as well as seeing Jessica's arrival.
