One of the first things I noticed when arriving at Sydney’s Manly Beach (Yes, that is the name of the beach…) is the large amount of surfers!


All day, every day, there are hundreds of people, of all ages, making use of the crystal blue waters’ high waves!

Apparently,  most Australians don’t share my fear of sharks!!!!

Note: The beach was named because when the first settlers arrived, they were greeted by the natives with ‘Manly Gestures’. The story has no elaboration on exactly what that means, but it certainly makes you wonder!!!!
