Morning at Millers Point (Sydney USK)

A perfect morning yesterday, after the heat of the day before: sunny but breezy, and lots of interesting vistas to paint and draw! 

The Palisade Hotel has been described as a ‘venerable old neck oilery’. Great expression!  It was fitting that we sketched around there yesterday on the day that celebrations were taking place in Albany, WA, to commemorate 100 years since the boarding of the first convoy of Australian troops bound for war, as apparently The Palisade was where many of Sydney's Anzacs downed their last beers before boarding ships bound for Gallipoli!
