Fernando and the cockatoos

Meghan and Fernando by the Opera House
Our friend Fernando was in Australia recently on one of his regular observing trips at Parkes, and we enjoyed hanging out with him one afternoon. We walked through Circular Quay, had hot chocolate at the Opera House, and then managed a leisurely stroll through the Botanic gardens. We even caught a flock of cockatoos having their dinner in the gardens before it got dark and a huge full moon rose. A laid back Sydney evening!
