45th Birthday of @sydneyoperahouse .. and what a magical sunrise to open the special day today; I was in awe (video on IG stories) 😍🌅🎂
Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, on this day on 20 October 1973, @sydneyoperahouse was officially opened. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site - a masterpiece of modern architecture and an icon of Australia. It’s now being renewed for the 21st Century. $202m towards the Concert Hall and entry and foyers upgrades and the new creative learning and function centres, and $26m to the Joan Sutherland Theatre acoustics upgrades as well as improvements to accessibility and functionality.

⛸Ice Skating above 🦈 Sharks , 🐋 Whales, 🐬 Dolphins and whatever else there is down below us in the water.😅
These ships have it all. @exploreroftheseas combines a good mix of sports, art, adventure and entertainment.
The ice skating rink also hosts a few spotlight events for the professional skaters which is NOT to miss ( even if skating is not really your thing.
They are pretty particular about no photos on the ice for personal use - so just ask them to snap on of your family on the sideline as we did 😆.
There is also a showcase event for adults only scavenger hunt - Hilarious and 100% worth getting there early. Sit with your new friends too as sections are divided into teams. Come prepared to laugh and let your guard down.

From last night’s stunning sunset to this Friday morning’s fog - but that didn’t stop the Royal motorcade I spied this morning too 😊
