Here are a few shots of the area where M and F were for the first event - the "Podium" level of the Opera House.
That is Jan Utzon being interviewed.
The rest of the media have scattered and the crowds are dispersing.
See the beautiful cruise ship docked at Circular Quay - and that is the front of the Bennelong Resturant just behind the people.
Looking to the other side from this area, that is the "Southern Cloud" sitting in Farm Cove, surrounded by the Botanical Gardens, with our navy base Garden Island further behind. (This is where CP Mary was snapped getting a Danish hot dog from the little Danish hot dog stand during the November 2011 visit.)
The Crown Prince Couple and Mary's family spent the Saturday late afternoon and evening cruising about on this, disembarking at Rose Bay when it was dark.
And this lovely gum tree is what you look at directly ahead from where all the action was, on the Opera House steps.
I recently read somewhere - sorry, I'm not sure who's post it was - that they had noticed that often in public, Frederik will glance at Mary and she will glance back. Whoever picked up on that trait of theirs, yes, here are a few photos of them doing that outside the Western Foyer on the morning of the second day Friday.
Frederik looks at Mary, Mary looks back at Frederik - sorry, just cut F out of the photo a bit there - and looks at Frederik, and then looks a bit coy when the lady next to her seems to pick up on it.
M and F's film crew who went with them aboard "Xpress" and to the garden of Admiralty House for the interview shown in the "Prize" telecast.
I didn't mean to photograph them, but completely missed M and F in this shot, in all the action and excitment.
Much the same thing happened the next day where I got a lovely series of photos of LIW Tanja getting into the car after the Ole Lynggaard store opening, and completely cut out CP Mary just on the other side, as she got in.
