Weekend in Sydney

We are back from a lovely weekend in Sydney celebrating our youngest daughter's birthday .... and yes .... she loved her quilt!!   Here is our beautiful Chelsea enjoying a birthday desert with sparkler on the weekend!!

On Saturday we did the 9km walk from the Spit Bridge at Mosman to Manly.   It was really windy and very cool, but a spectacular walk!   This is at the start looking down Middle Harbour!

Further around the corner and we overlooked Balmoral Beach and the city skyline in the distance, including the tip of the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

Rounding the point we could see the Manly Ferry heading into dock at Manly!

Sitting enjoying our morning tea muesli bar and looking out to Sydney Heads .... absolutely spectacular .... Nadia, me, Chelsea and Ashleigh.

Out of the wind now and looking from Reef Beach across to Manly .... me, Chelsea, Ashleigh and David.

Delicious lunch of Yamba prawns and salad in Manly .... mmmmmm ...... after a two and half hour walk, we deserved a yummy lunch!

On Sunday morning we headed up to Palm Beach and climbed up to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse ... again such spectacular views back over Palm Beach on the left and Pittwater on the right!

David and I at the Barrenjoey Lighthouse!

Sam and Nadia decided they needed to get a bit of exercise too as they are heading off to Croatia and the Greek Islands for a month this week (very jealous about that!!)

David, me, Chelsea, Tim, Ashleigh and Sam at Barrenjoey Lighthouse!

The newly engaged couple .... Ashleigh and Tim!     As you can see .... not a relaxing weekend .... but we all enjoy the outdoors and it was such a spectacular weekend!  Happy Birthday Chelsea!!!
