Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia

While in Sydney I asked the free tour guide where to go and one of the many places she recommended was Manly Beach. The best way to get there is by ferry so I hopped on over and found a nice little town next to the famous surf beach. The weather started out perfectly and I set off down the beach. I didn’t really know where to go so I set off and ended up in Shelly Beach Park. I barely dented the park and chose to stay along the water and walk along the nice large rocks. A storm then snuck up behind me and I was forced to retreated back to town.
I really wanted to find a cafe over looking the water instead of one of the many tourist traps I passed on my walk in along the main strip to the beach. I almost took a picture of what will soon be exactly what I wanted, but there was a guy in the way of the shot and I didn’t foresee the fact that I wouldn’t be able to take a picture later due to rain. The cafe wasn’t going to be open for another week. It had a simple classic exterior with faded blue paint and a clean minimal interior decorated with painted surfboards. I thus had to ask some fleeing locals for a ‘good local cafe’ and was quickly directed to one nearby. It was a cosy little place and I ordered some tasty fettucini alfredo before heading back to the ferry.
