AFTER 2 BIG DAYS ON THE BUS CHECKING OUT THE BLUE MOUNTAINS
AND THE CENTRAL COAST, WE NEEDED TO HAVE A NICE SLOW R&R
DAY OUT.

MANLY TO HUBBY AND I IS A BETTER CHOICE THAN THE OTHER
FAMOUS BEACH - BONDI.

MANLY HAS A MORE FRIENDLY, HOMELY FEEL THAN BONDI.
PLUS THE FERRY TRIP IS BETTER THAN A BORING TRAIN RIDE.

THE CORSO IN MANLY IS A PEDESTRIAN THOROUGHFARE,
EASY TO WALK DOWN WITH NO TRAFFIC TO DODGE.
WE TOOK A SLOW STROLL ALONG THE CORSO TOWARDS THE BEACH.
THE CORSO IS LINED WITH VARIOUS GIFT SHOPS AND HAS ALWAYS
HAD A FANTASTIC ICE-CREAM SHOP RIGHT AT THE END.

HUBBY AND I LIVED IN MANLY FOR 6 MONTHS WHILST OUR FIRST
HOUSE ON THE CENTRAL COAST WAS BEING BUILT. WE LIVED ABOVE
SAHIB'S INDIAN RESTAURANT WHICH BTW IS STILL HERE AFTER 3
DECADES OF TRADING.

SO AFTER HAVING SEEN AVOCA BEACH ON THE CENTRAL COAST,
OUR GUESTS WERE NOW GOING TO SEE THE OTHER FAMOUS
SURF BEACH MANLY. THE DAY WAS NICE AND SUNNY AND NOT
TOO WINDY. PERFECT FOR EATING OUR ICE-CREAMS WHILST
PEOPLE WATCHING ALONG THE BEACH.

I WAS HAPPY TO SEE THAT THE KEBAB SHOP IS STILL HERE.
IT WAS MY FAVOURITE JUNK FOOD SHOP. KEBABS ARE STILL MY
FAVOURITE :)

THE NEW BRIGHTON HOTEL

I WAS NICELY SURPRISED THAT THE OWNER OF THE NEW
BRIGHTON HOTEL HAD RESERVED THE UPSTAIRS PART OF THE PUB
FOR OUR VT LUNCH PARTY.

AFTER WE HAD EATEN, HE THEN OPENED IT UP TO THE PUBLIC.
I DIDN'T ASK FOR THIS SO IT WAS A NICE TOUCH AND OUR VT
GUESTS CERTAINLY APPRECIATED IT.

BACK AT THE HOTEL A FEW OF US WANDERED UP THE STREET
TOWARDS KINGS CROSS AND FOUND THIS GREAT LITTLE
GERMAIN RESTAURANT FOR DINNER. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
SORRY, NO PHOTOS. THE FOOD AND BEERS WERE TOO GOOD :)

MAGGIES

TOMORROW WAS GOING TO BE THE LAST DAY OF THE BIG VT MEET.
WE WERE OFF TO WATSONS BAY FOR A NICE LONG GOODBYE LUNCH :)

It was nice of them to give you a private area for lunch :-)
