Snapshot(s) Saturday: Postcard #3 Manly Beach, Sydney


G'day from Sydney (yes, we're still here)! We're on the 67th day of our round-the-world trip, and we'll be sticking around longer than planned because of a visa issue. Now I ain't complaining as much as I was a couple of weeks ago because Sydney's finally warming up!


Warm enough for us to do a quick stroll along Manly Beach the other day, where this next postcard for the The Postard Project was bought from (and where Luna wore her first flip flops!). Captain Arthur Phillip named the beach so after being impressed by the aborigines living there who got "confidence and manly behaviour". For some reason, the name just cracks me up.
