Sydney, Australia

My namesake and partner in crime has now arrived in Sydney and apparently does not know the meaning of the words “jet lag”!

On Tuesday we took the ferry to Manly for a wander around the harbour and the beach, before hiring bikes and cycling up a very big hill to get to North Head, a lovely viewpoint looking back over Sydney Harbour.

Yesterday we took advantage of the sunshine and headed for Bondi Beach.  We had lunch overlooking the beach at Bondi Icebergs Swimming Club, possibly the most gloriously situated swimming pool in the world . . .

After a bit of beach time, we walked along the clifftop walk admiring the surfers from afar and the joggers from up close.  We are starting to feel slightly guilty about our lack of exercise and daily double-scoop ice-creams whilst in Sydney . . .

  1. Hi Frances (& Frances) – I’m glad to hear that you are getting some exercise but walking and cycling just exercises the legs. For total body fitness, you can’t beat swimming in the sea! – Baci Papà

  2. It looks glorious – I’m looking out of my window onto yet more rain! XX

  3. Looks lovely – although we did have about an hour of sunshire here today… x
