It was 18 degrees celsius today (64.4F) – a lovely day to visit a beach – plenty of parking and no crowds on the sand. The water felt pretty nippy though so only my toes went in for a dip.
Balmoral Beach is one of Sydney’s Middle Harbour beaches and about a 30 minute drive from where we are staying – it feels comfortable for me to be back on the left hand side of the road though it makes the manservant a bit nervous:
I came across a “local” painting Rocky Point Island. He sells tile sized paintings for $20. He had quite a collection on the front of his easel. As I was taking photos I didn’t feel the need to buy one though they looked very nice :
It was a lovely day out though the Queen did not make an appearance and I saw nary a cucumber sandwich!
I think I’ve been bad and got a touch too much sun on my face! I’m usually much more careful with applying the sunscreen but I must’ve missed my cheeks – they feel “rosey”.
Tonight we are hanging out with the Economist son and the Princess (it’s lovely that brother & sister seem to live together in harmony) – we are going healthier tonight – chicken and salad stuff. Tomorrow we are off for our first visit to my parent’s – about 3 hours drive north of Sydney.
