Zane, Janis and Iveta visit Sydney.

We had a chance to show Zane's Dad and Iveta some of the sights of Sydney today. 
Zane suggested that we could pick them up from Epping train station and then drive out to North Head. We decided to have morning tea at Nth Head and then go to Palm beach for lunch where they could catch the ferry back to Ettalong.
The day was sunny but the wind was cold and fairly strong (see photos with red blankets). We had a bit of a 'brush with the stars' event at Palm Beach, as they were filming an episode of 'Home and Away' when we arrived. At first, Zane thought that all the people we first saw where in the queue to get into the restaurant, but they were only watching the actors do their stuff.
It was good to catch up and finally meet Zane's dad, Janis.

Should have taken a fishing rod. These fish were in the ocean off Nth Head.

Rugging-up against the cool breeze.
The 2 locals had warm clothes for the conditions.

It was warmer sitting in the sun at the back.
