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!

Down By The River….Chicki and Me

5 Sep

Just like Margaret, Chicki likes the scenery

I love ducks

A great place to swim

Sharks live here

Here we are, Chicki and me, down by the river.

It’s a beautiful day: the cockatoos are rejoicing, the swallows are swooping, the ducks are swimming (and waddling here and there).  As if from nowhere, a  lone stilt suddenly appears.

Green after rain,  shrubs and trees are blossoming. Clear water laps onto the yellow sands: the muddy depths are undisturbed. Little fish swarm near the surface.

Along the promenade, a small stream of walkers: many accompanied by their four-legged friends: passes by. Here and there, visitors pause to rest, and take in the view.

Don’t we  live in a wonderful part of this incredible world?
