I had a breakfast date with a coworker bright and early Saturday morning at Manly, so I made the best of it and caught the sunrise. The sea was flat that morning, so there wasn’t much surfing action. But there were dozens of swimmers out, making the long trek in the cold waters from Manly to Shelly Beach. Hats off to them! There were kayakers out too, and paddle boarders, and as the sun rose and cast its golden rays everywhere, the snorkelers and divers came out to play as well.
I also managed to make my way past the broken wall separating the Shelly beach lookout and Sydney Harbor National Park, and came across this quiet little oasis of a pond. It was all so lovely and serene, I felt happy, calm.
And then I slipped on a boardwalk off the trail that led to an old bunker, and chipped the glass on my brand new lens. Argh boardwalk! What’s wrong with a nice rocky trail!? Deep breaths. I think there’s no damage to the picture quality though. At least as far as I can tell now…
That incident with the camera lens aside, it was a perfect spring morning. Cool, fresh air, with excellent company and breakfast to boot.
