Lunch at Velero, Woolloomooloo

Oh, it is so good to be back in the 'hood. I've missed the hard-working ferries chugging along the harbour, the cool shade from the rustling plane trees along Macleay Street, the buzzy cafes, the excited tourists snapping scenes I've long taken for granted.Sometimes I think the best thing about travel is that it makes you see your home, friends and family in a new light. Distance certainly makes the heart grow fonder.
And fond I am indeed of my friends Andrew and Sean.Today we all took advantage of that glorious sun we've missed so much and chowed down on a tapas lunch at Velero on Finger Wharf at Woolloomooloo. To friendship!

  1. It's hours until lunch - I really REALLY shouldn't read your blog without an immediately impending meal!:)
