When we lived on New Beach Road, Darling Point, we lived on the third story of a block of flats overlooking Sydney Harbour, the most beautiful harbour in the world. More specifically, it was just up from the Rushcutters Bay Marina. This is from where the Sydney - Hobart yacht race departs each year, and we would watch the spectacle from our balcony. If you walk around Rushcutters Bay Park and look toward the marina it is literally a forest of masts, sails and rope. The white sails against the blue sky and the harbour, clean enough to sustain an abundance of marine life. Nice.
