Went to Manly
Did another photo trip around The Rocks, an area of Sydney catering to the tourists. This is the part of the city first colonised by the convicts and their keepers, and features some very quaint little allies, barely wide enough for two people to walk side by side. Also a host of small restaurants and cafes.
Took a ferry trip to Manly, a place just out of Sydney, and met up with another WCer,Lindsay, whose user name is LPBaker. We spent a very pleasant afternoon visiting the Manly Art Gallery, and on to a blissfully quiet park area, where the only disturbance was bird song. Also took in the view of the Sydney area from a headland which overlooks the way to the ocean, taken by the Sydney/Hobart yacht race each year. Oh to be up there on race day. It was a great afternoon... thanks Lindsay.
(Note) The pics are in The Rocks, not Manly.
