We took a fast ferry over to Manly this morning, (20 min) across Sydney Harbor, which was filled with sailboats. Another beautiful day in paradise. Kari and family met us on the Corso, a pedestrian mall that runs from the harbor to the beach (reminiscent of Barcelona’s Las Ramblas). We walked to their apartment overlooking Manly Beach, dropped our gear and headed to the cliff walk above Shelly Beach, (the snorkeling beach).
When we finished the walk, we were hot and ready for snorkeling at Shelly beach. We saw several varieties of fish, but the water was cold enough that we didn’t want to stay in for more than a half hour.
We had a lovely early dinner with Kari and family and headed back to Sydney to pack for the next leg of our journey, the cruise to New Zealand. The first two days of the cruise will be at sea, so I won’t post again until Wednesday when we will be cruising New Zealand’s sounds.
