Sights, sun and sandcastles
Beautiful weather spurred us to head out to Shelly Beach. We had the kids armed with scooters and bikes for the brisk walk from Manly Beach to Shelly beach. It was a busy bustling stretch of promenade filled with families and people of all ages.
Along the way we passed the beautiful Fairy Bower Baths, triangular in shape and the southern most rock pool on the Northern Beaches. They tempted us with their clear water and protection from the ocean waves but we continued on with the smells and tastes of The Boathouse lingering in the distance.
On arrival at Shelly Beach, we treated ourselves to well earned banana bread and soy flat whites. The Boathouse is the perfect spot to watch the world go by. We saw kayaks coming into the beach, swimmers training in the ocean, a few snorkelers exploring the life underwater. The sun shone down on us and we got stuck in with the kids making a huge sandcastle city from our used coffee cups and banana bread boxes.
The construction activity attracted other 'little people' and their parents to join in the fun. Whilst the children played, we took a moment to sit back, look around and take in the beauty of the bay.
