Daily life in Manly

There are the early birds who surf or swim at dawn, the locals out for a power walk and a coffee, the day trippers who stream in from the ferry. On any given day Manly Beach is full of colourful characters and the area where the Corso meets the beach is where their paths cross. Here’s a slice of life from a typical Saturday in winter.

Big Tuesday at Manly

Ex-cyclone Oswald brought some big swells to Sydney beaches today. Manly was looking pretty messy early this morning after last night’s storm, with a torrent of dirty brown run-off spewing out of Queenscliff lagoon into the sea. South Manly offered some decent waves for those who were game. Here’s a few photos I took this afternoon.
