If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, then you must have seen that I was in Bali, Indonesia last week. So this weeks photo diary actually has photos from 7 days of traveling, sunbathing, swimming and enjoying a new culture.
Palm Beach in Sydney’s Northern Beaches is one of Sydney’s icon beaches. Besides being a great surf beach, it is also home to the world-famous show, Home and Away. This iconic beach is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, whether you are a fan of the soap opera or not. Personally I am not, but I thoroughly enjoyed the day out here.
Remeber to swim between red and yellow flags here because there are some very strong currents.
Home and away’s surf club is along towards the other end for a photo op if you are a fan! You might even catch a good filming day!
The beach is a popular for young families and a favorite spot for preschoolers during the week.
It’s a surf beach which usually has a safe shallow area for splashing and sometimes there are sandbars that protect parts of the beach.
Nonetheless, as ever, it’s vital to swim only between the flags.
Unfortunately, the day we went there was an unusually strong current and we were not allowed to swim. nevertheless, it was a lovely day.
What is better than spending a Saturday afternoon at the beach! Especially when it is supposed to be autumn and we still have summer temperatures (27 degrees the day I went to the beach)
This weekend I ended up going to a local beach about 20 minutes from where I live. It is a family-friendly beach because it is a harbor beach and therefore you don’t get many waves. It has lovely clear blue water so you can see a lot of fish if you snorkel or wear goggles. Continue reading “PHOTO DIARY #2 BALMORAL BEACH”
This weekend I decided to go for a wander and did the Bridge walk from Milsons point all the way to the Sydney opera house. A beautiful walk filled with lots of great picture opportunities.
I walked over the bridge, then via the rocks, too I walked to the circular quay to the opera house.
It took me about 2 hours to complete the walk. I did take the bus back home cause I was exhausted by then end of the walk. (it was a bit warmer than anticipated so I was way overdressed an sweating my ass off – worth it though, I love doing this walk)
