Happy Valentine's Day

I have fallen in love with Sydney. If Earth is the goldilocks planet then I think Sydney may very well be, in my head at least, the goldilocks city. It seems to have exactly the right amount of everything to be just right for a very agreeable human existence. City planners seem to have struck the perfect balance between city, parkland and water, with Sydney Harbour being the shining centerpiece. It is very simply, just right in every way. 

We have been all over the city and the harbor in the last 6 weeks and I'm still not ready to leave. A lovely thing I just read today is that the Royal Botanic Gardens has 3,964 trees, which has made me very happy. The gardens are right on the water's edge beside the Opera House and it has, along with all those trees, acres and acres of soft hilly grass to roll around on. The Botanic Gardens which are right beside the iconic Sydney Bridge which is right beside the magnificent Opera House which is right next to the massive naval base which overlooks the prosperous city overflowing with art and culture makes a very good starting point for any Sydney adventure. And I love that someone thought it important to count the trees.

It's going to be a difficult place to leave.
