walking the Northern Beaches

An unexpected 20 km hike up the Northern Beaches (if barefoot on the sand is allowed to be called ‘hiking). Sparking lots of lovely memories. Refreshing impressions of places. Splashing, smiling & jigging.

Pure coffee shop, Manly

I don’t know if you’ve watched the film Ratatouille but there’s a bit near the end where the evil-restaurant-critic-guy makes a speech: “…we (critics) thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read…the average piece of junk is more meaningful than our criticism designating it so…” I agree, pushing negativity doesn’t tend to be good for anyone and I often think that critical reviews are hasty, subjective and lacking perspective. I’m not claiming to be a critic at all but I do like to review things because I enjoy sharing the good stuff, so it’s unusual, but I’ve thought about it and I’m going to share this bad review with you.

Manly Co-Op

Manly Co-Op, full name, Manly Food Co-Operative, is a not for profit, community owned shop. Its ethos is healthy and environmentally friendly shopping and I reckon it’s very successful at what it does.

I’m pretty sure this was the same night that I went to last year. Mostly it was salsa but there was also bachata and merengue. It was a lot of fun, bout 40 people, and there were people from the last dance night, the classes I’ve been to in Manly and the class last night. I practised some of the steps from last night, although I had forgotten the footwork, but mostly I tried to practise the cuban salsa body movement – hips and shoulders. That …

harbour swim

Went for my first ocean swim in ages this evening. It wasn’t an amazing evening for it – bit overcast, fair amount of junk in the water – but I had a nice time anyway, good to get wet and stretch my limbs.
There was heaps of marine life. I saw a few sting rays, big fish, see-through fish, long pointy fish and tiny tiny fish. There were also a lot of jellyfish. I haven’t seen little ones like these before (they weren’t blue bottles). There …
