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.

Manly Beach: a Glorious Place

28 Dec

Hands up who likes ocean beaches?

For those in Sydney, I offer one of our finest: Manly.

For those who come from the other side of Sydney, is there a better way to get there  than via the Manly Ferry that regularly leaves from Circular Quay?

What an expanse of dazzling sand! What an ocean!
