Today we took the ferry over to Manly which is a seaside resort for Sydney. The weather at 30 degrees was perfect for a trip to the beach and much of Sydney agreed.Manly has a long, straight, pedestrianised street with shops either side leading to the beach which is long, sandy, touristy and packed (well it was today).As ever you just had to walk a little bit away from the main drag for things to be very different. Just a half an hour stroll away from the beach were some fantastic views over the ocean with clear blue waters and skies. Also it was completely clear of people too making it a really relaxing place to be. As you can see from the pictures below it was just stunning.
