Manly Beach: Seven Miles from Sydney…

When I was a child, my parents often took me to Manly. We would get a bus to Sydney’s Circular Quay, and from there catch the ferry.

The signage has stuck with me throughout my life. ‘Seven Miles From Sydney, A Thousand Miles From Care’.

These days, of course, it’s all metric. Kilometres have replaced miles. But the principle remains the same. 🙂

Its beaches are lovely, though on the day Ron and I visited it the breeze blew rather strong.

This is a photo of me sitting on a ledge, with the main beach in the background.

    The water looks a tremendous colour and you certainly get the sunshine for days at the beach. I like the idea of being a thousand miles from care.

    It looks so inviting! I love the old logo too “…a thousand miles from care.”
