Manly 5.8km

Amy is away in Hong Kong for this weekend which is sad so I have made my own fun. I was going to spend Sunday writing computer code but decided instead, what with the fantastic weather, I’d do a walk around Manly and take the camera. So that is what I did! I’ve mapped the route and marked where the photos were taken on this embedded map –

What’s good fun about the map above, consider all the things you see on that walk and it took a good couple of hours to walk, keep hitting the “-” zoom out button to see how much more exploring could be done!

An iced coffee helped set the pace for the 5.8km walk that I was about to start. I decided to do a non-ocean route as the onshore winds were blowing, but I couldn’t resist having a quick look at the surf at the end of walk!

I’ve never seen this little boat ramp before (or just not noticed it) and next to it was a small boat storage dock –

I then continued the walk past little Manly beach and headed towards my favourite beach in Manly, Collins Beach. On the way I spotted this little wasp –

Through the trees and away from Collins Flat there’s a pipe that looks like its part of the Dharma Institute –

The walk up to the top of the hill from Collins Flat is a long uphill struggle but good exercise, at the top of the road there’s a sign for Bandicoots, which I thought were imaginary –

And that concludes the photos to the walk! Until next time!
