— My Alphabe-Thursday (2nd), the letter "N" / Thursday Two Questions —
Here we have some pictures to honor Alphabe-Thursday letter "N"

My "N" is for the National Maritime Museum in Sidney, Australia. Docked on the left is the HMAS Vampire and to our right the HMAS Onslow. The Onslow is a vintage submarine and this was the closest to a sub I have been yet. The picture on the right is another view of the area outside the museum.
We did not go inside the ships or the museum because for the two hours we would spend the price for admission was atrocious. There was a senior price, very low, for which we would have paid and then gone inside. But this museum only allowed citizens of Australia to have that. In the U.S. and most countries we visit, if a person is the appropriate age then there is no discrimination based on citizenship. For some goodies in Sydney we did pay only the senior price.
That's all the "N" word pictures I have but I did want to finish up, or almost finish posting my New Zealand and Australia holiday pictures. You can see all I have so far here, (Our 2012-2013 New Zealand and Australia).
Above is a little kids' park along the way to the museum. This boat looks like fun. On the is Mrs. Jim coming out of China Town.
Fruit and vegetable market was about like the ones in our grocery stores except this on was in the Market building. On Saturday night we went to a concert in the park. The park was full of people out for the evening's nice weather.
Mrs. Jim is ready a Sarsaparilla at the oldest bar in Sydney. I would rather be back on the ferry, riding around in the harbor. And we did, pictures follow.
I didn't expect to see this little amusement park along the shore. It looked inviting but we didn't have time to stop in. Besides they may not have let us pay the cheaper senior rate.
My last post last week was about an "M" word, More.

I'm a female and was raised with lots of silly rules that only applied to females. Most of them are gone now.
2. When you are on holiday how do you interface with the natives?
When in Rome do as the Romans do. I'm the same way. I'll spend a great deal of time studying about the country before I go. Don't want to offend anyone.
Bonus Question: What is your favorite "N" word?
Nice...Everyone needs to be nice.
Have a terrific day. ☺
As for me, I like to chat with people wherever I travel. Surprising, sometimes, what you learn ...!
A lovely weekend to you & yr family!
I've had a lot of fun experiences doing this, ended up with dinner invitations and recipes.
Yes, I have been discriminated against for being female. As a teen I absolutely loved the wood shop class but we were only allowed one semester if we were girls. Protesting did no good! I am going to select the word "neighborly" for my "n" word.
Have a blessed weekend. I hope Next time you get to enjoy the park.
All the best,
Nice to see your Australia pictures. I have relatives there, but have not been there myself. I'd love to go someday...
Hopefully, you will get another chance to enjoy the park.
I just talk to everyone...so I guess that's my interface.
Someday I'm going to attempt a cruise. I have a friend that books them and she is forever nagging me about it.
I'm not sure how I would feel sequested with a bunch of people I don't know with no way to escape!
Thanks for linking.
