Sunny Sydney...not this week

We arrived in the Deli Mecca of Potts Point on Wednesday and spent the afternoon touring Macleay St customising ourselves to all the gastronomic delights it has on offer. We are spoilt for cafe's and food stores here. There's a Fratteli Fresh above the Woolworths supermarket packed full of fabulous foodie treats to inspire anyone into the kitchen. I'm looking forward to having a meal this weekend at Cafe Sopra, where they cook up all of the fantastic produce.

Above is the view from of our bedroom window down Macleay St towards Woolloomooloo and below, if I pivot the other way, looking towards The Cross. I love all of the 1930's architecture around this area. There are so many wonderful wooden entrances to neighboring apartment blocks, with shining beveled windows, sweet letter boxes and ton of deco features that I can wait to explore in more detail.

The weather has been dismal the last couple of days. The wind was blowing so hard this morning that it completely flipped the wooden outdoor table on our balcony and smashed the outdoor light. That's no mean feat either as it's a 10 seater heavy wooden table, difficult for the two of us to even inch off the ground...let alone flip! It seems to have rained non stop since Thursday and I'm itching for some sunshine so we can get out and walk the streets down to Rushcutters Bay.

Rain, rain, go away! come again another day.

What a fantastic view. The Fratelli Fresh looks very exciting. I think I would like to live in Potts Point!
