It was also nice to re-visit Manly, with its distinct charm. I'm glad Geoff was driving because finding the parking stations at Manly is not a task for the faint-hearted. And returning in the afternoon traffic across Spit Bridge (which at that time of day is only one lane for south-bound traffic) is in a similar category.
We then headed off the The Rocks for a little exploration and dinner, followed by a walk across the Bridge. As it happened we were right in the middle at 9 pm when a fireworks display from Fort Denison occurred. I'm not sure if this is a regular thing or whether it was in connection with some event. However, it capped off a good day.
