Today was a national holiday called Australia Day.
Many people wore clothes with flags or logos and put the temporary tattoos on their bodies.
This is totally different from our national holiday
which, for us, is more like a normal holiday and so is celebrated a little more calmly. haha

My wife and I went to Dee Why Beach to have a surfing lesson.
The beach was foggy and so crowded that it was difficult to tell that there was a beach.
The waves were normal and I was able to keep standing many times.
So I'd like to buy a surf board soon.

After that, we went to Manly Beach to eat lunch
and to visit an aquarium called Ocean World Manly.
We went to a Mexico restaurant near the ocean and chose fish and chips
from the lunch special menu. ($14.50)
It was not Mexican food, but my wife chose a burger with Portuguese sauce.
There were three fish which were very big, so I became full.

After that, we took a ferry back to the city.
I felt that I was traveling, and taking ferries is one of my favorite things here.

We then went to see the fireworks display at Darling Harbour.
I thought it was a good idea to see them from Sydney Tower
since she was tired and had jammed her finger from surfing.
But since she said that she wanted to see it at the harbour, we walked there.
There were so many people and the fireworks were very nice.
I thought the colour and magnitude of the fireworks were better than those in Japan.

We also went to Sydney Tower
because I thought people would have already gone back home after the fireworks.
But there was another obstacle.
There were a lot of clouds and we were not able to see much. haha

For dinner, we tried some Korean food such as Bibimbap.
Today was a busy day. haha

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. moron (in a newspaper)
= an offensive way of referring to sb that you think is very stupid
2. nasal (in a newspaper)
= connected with the nose
3. freckly (in a newspaper)
=
