Hi everyone! I hope your Easter weekend has been relaxing and filled with family fun. After spending much of last week feeling less than perfect, I've finally shaken the flu just in time for the Easter weekend. What good timing that was, for it's been a perfect weekend to spend a little time with my family, a little time pottering at home and the rest of the time out and about in this beautiful city of ours.
We've been blessed with summery weather here in Sydney. We spent yesterday afternoon and evening on beach, swimming and body surfing as the sun set. A totally gorgeous evening. I couldn't believe the pretty colours in the sky as the sun set. I hope you like pretty pastel sunsets because I've posted a few photos :)
Growing up on the beach in a little coastal town, I feel very at home by the sea. I just love the sand, the surf and the fresh sea air.
How beautiful are Aussie beaches? We are spoilt for choice, even in Sydney. Yesterday we headed north to Manly. My tip for beaching at Manly is to head north, away from the touristy crowds near the Corso at the southern end of Manly Beach. This is Queenscliff beach, and it's just beautiful and significantly less crowded.
This morning we packed a little picnic and headed south to La Perouse to do a bush walk and a swim. The weather got better and better and we found a "new to us" beach that was just gorgeous. While I love having a beach that we go to regularly and we know so well, it's always good to explore a little further afield and find new places.
We had lunch and a swim at Frenchman's cove and then walked over the headland to Congwong Beach. The sea was bright turquoise and I wanted to dive right in. We'll definitely be heading back here for a swim.
Just round the bend is a little nudie beach. Gorgeous bush walk though - shame about the nude old men, particularly one elderly gent, who was greeting all the bushwalkers with a big silver ring around his enormous erection. Ha, ha, there was no missing him. I suppose we were warned by the signs!
We didn't spend too much time on the beach which was a shame as it was truly beautiful. We will definitely come again and do the full coastal walk around the headland.
So have you had any surprises when bushwalking? What's the funniest thing you saw this weekend?
Happy Nude Day
