Not different at heart from the two thousand other aquariums we've visited together, although this time C. had a toy platypus, the manatees were called "dugongs" and swam over us, and it was T.'s turn to commune with a diver.
And of course we had great company in the form of old friend Karin, whom we met up with on her way to a holiday in Fiji.
Darling Harbour is one more lovely public space, and its restaurants maintain the essential custom of providing crayons.
Cate Blanchett, and so much else, will have to wait till next time. Tomorrow we head north.
