The rest of our trip Down Under (incl New Years Eve in Sydney!)

So the day after Christmas is known as Boxing Day in Australia. I don't know why we call it Boxing Day but I know that all Aussies like that it's another public holiday and the day when all the stores have their great post Christmas sales :-)

Traditionally in Sydney, Boxing Day is the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. The race starts in Rushcutters Bay. Well, since my older broker Mario is in the Navy, we caught a train into downtown Sydney then walked down to Fleet Base East. We had front row seats to Rushcutters Bay! What a fun day with my big brother ;-) Unforgettable!

We then went to Mosman to Clifton Gardens which was a cute little beach and perfect for families with young kiddos. Our dear old friends Danny and Tracy brought their adorable 3 kiddos to the park to play with Zachary. They all had such a fun time!

Lunch at the iconic Harry's Cafe de Wheels. Aussie meat pie with pea mash on top and some hot sauce! YUM!
