The sun in the early May afternoon is setting toward the north west, with light reflecting from the shell of the bridge side opera house building. The podium on which the shells are mounted is a platform to walk around and to see from down on the harbour one of the world’s great buildings.
A short walk from the opera house to the east and around to the south of the Bennelong point, is a great place to sit, and perhaps relax read a book or have a picnic.
You will definitely walk past these massive fig trees which populate the front edge of the botanical gardens. The trees seem to forget, that roots go down first, not last.
