Gill and Peter like to travel. In 2011/12 they completed a trip around Australia. One of the things that they are aware of is the fact that to live your dream then you actually have to do something and that's what they did. In 2013 they decided to further explore outback Australia and crossed the Simpson Desert. Going forward they will continue to travel as they plan for the next few years.
To see some of their other trips follow the links.
We have visited Manly Beach a number of times.The wharf area seems to have been upgraded a
bit and there were lots of restaurants.We walked up through the shopping area and had lunch at one of the
hotels near the beachside.It was warm
enough to sit out on the deck and it was rather nice.
At the beach there were quite a few swimmers as the
temperature was near thirty degrees.Manly beach is on a point with the beach on either side of the shopping
precinct.On the wharf side there is a
large area with shark netting making a safe swimming haven.The aquarium can be seen behind this area.
Fort Denison in Sydney Harbour
In the middle of Sydney Harbour is Fort Denison.This fort was used in the early days of
settlement as a place of punishment and confinement for the convict population.It is now a tourist destination and has a
café and is popular for walks and picnics.
