I was hoping to head out to the Blue Mountains today to do a bit of a walk and unwind from the stress of daily deadlines. But Cityrail decided they would do trackwork on that line so I headed off instead to Manly yet again.
It's nice to get up early and see the early morning sun rays around the harbour - so much nice than the harsh glare at midday. There was yet another cruise lilner at Circular Quay as I boarded the Manly ferry:
I did the walk all around North harour and up to Dobroyd Point where you get this view of Crater Cove:
And then down the other side to the delightful beach at Clontarf, and a bus back into the city via neutral bay.
I must admit I was feeling rather thirsty by this point, so I stoppd off at the Rocks for a pint at the usual pub in the 'heritage' area of Argyle Place:
I should add that I took a few more pictures with my LSM Leicas - the IIIg and a Bess R with a canon 28mm lens on it. Will post them when they're developed.

Sunday 8th Feb was the hottest day of the year in Sydney. Temperatures were up in the 40s in the west of Sydney so we headed down to the harbour and spent a lazy afternoon lolling round the pool at Milsons Point and sitting in the shade at the market. It was a lovely day out - and when we got back we heard that others hadn't enjoyed the heat at all - we got the first news of the unfolding horror of the Victorian bushfires.
