Sep 27, 2013 - Manly Beach

9/27/13, Friday Back into the City today. We caught the Ingleburn train again into Sydney. It dropped us off at Circular Quay which is right by the ferry terminals. So we hopped a ferry to Manly. We enjoyed a great ferry ride across the harbor to Manly (about a 1/2 hour ride). Manly is a beach town which reminded me of Santa Cruz, California. It was a two block walk to the other side of the penninsula to the Ocean side with a great beach. We stopped for lunch at Manly Pizza & Wine. Wonderful pizza! For dessert, we stopped in at Yogurtland....

Apr 19, 2011 - Last day Down Under

Our final day! I can't believe it! It went so fast! We walked through Hyde Park and stopped and went into St. Mary's Cathedral...beautiful stain glass windows and sandstone interior. Back across the park to St. James church but couldn't find a way inside. Headed down to the CIrcular Quay and got on the 10 am ferry to Manly. Headed to the beach and the scenic walk. Went around to Shelly Beach and then a circle around through the National Park and towards North Head. Beautiful. Completed that circle in 2 hours and then had lunch. After lunch...

Feb 23, 2010 - Sydney - day 3 Manly

Today we had a very slow start. Just barley made it to breakfast at 10am. The breakfast here is much better than we had on the ship. plenty of food, cooked to order, with fabulous bakery items as well. Nice to have ripe watermelon this time of year. We finally got going after 1pm and took a 20 minute ferry ride over to Manly. While we were walking through the shops in Manly we ran into two ladies we meet on our cruise ship. Just so happens we met them on the ferry we took back to Sydney. We stopped at many of the shops and headed for the...

Mar 26, 2008 - Manly Beach, Terrigal Beach

We heard a knock on the door just before 9:00am. The three of us were just awake, playing on the waterbed, Jenn and I stuffed from the two $4.95 Eagle Boys pizzas the night before, Ella constipated. I opened the door and it was next door neighbour Ron, letting me know, in Lithuanian-Australian accent, that it was a beautiful day and “mite, you must go to the baych ... oh, did I wike you?”. He had just been with his doggy and said he had not seen a nicer day at Terrigal Beach. Indeed, the sky was pure blue, once again foiling the Sydney-area...

Feb 28, 2006 - This is it

Well i'm finally getting sorted, photos are done and now the website's up and running So this is where i'll be posting all my comments now about my trip and things that are happening etc. It's a bit easier i think than sending on emails all the time chugging up all your inbox's! We'll see how it works anyways. I've been looking for a job all day, tried the pos office, supermarkets, off-licenses, bakeries, everywhere...so i'm keeping my finger's crossed now.
