I think we're having an Indian Summer in Sydney at the moment. Our summer was so rainy and miserable but the days lately have been divine.
After our boy's soccer game and a quick coffee with friends we decided to pack a picnic and head to our favourite beach on Sydney Harbour. Nielsen Park (or Shark Beach) in Vaucluse is just lovely. It's a harbour beach but close to the heads so lovely and clean. We usually sit up on the grass above the beach for our picnic, then swim, play in the sand, chat over a coffee for us and icecream for the kids, more swimming then bring our hungry tired kids home for dinner and a movie.
Nielsen Park is close to where I went to boarding school so I've been going there for around 30 years and it's very special to me. There is a beautiful old kiosk with a cafe and lovely restaurant, and I love the old changing rooms behind the beach. I especially love how the sand drops away quickly and it's lovely and deep close to shore.
I thought I'd share some iPhone photos from today. The harbour was so sparkly and full of sailing boats with their spinnakers up. Spectacular.
This is really Sydney at it's best!
Hope you've all enjoyed a lovely relaxing Saturday also
