Rise and Shine: Waking up to an All Aussie big brekkie. I wonder how is it that Aussie pork is so smelly yet Aussie bacon so yummy? And I am not even a bacon/pancetta lover in the first place…
This restaurant serves some pretty awesome Southern Italian dishes and is conveniently located next to our serviced apartment. We wanted to have dinner here on our first night but there was a queue and we couldn’t wait with a hungry and soon-to-be cranky toddler around..
And so it was breakfast at Criniti’s after we learned that they are opened from 7a.m. daily for breakfast!
There is a pasticceria section where you can see pastry chef in action, and a cafe corner selling all these goodies. Strangely, this time round Mom and I were able to resist the temptation and we never tried a single item from here. I blame this lessened interest in sweets on aging…
And it’s babyccino time!
Symbolic of Manly and a prominent feature of both the ocean and harbour beaches are these Norfolk Island pine trees. Taken at the promenade along Manly beachfront where we started the short but very scenic walk from Manly to Shelly beach.
Clear and clean water at Shelly. There was even a seawater lap pool here, which is basically part of the ocean cordoned off by some huge rocks. Amazing.
Bought a new set of sand toys on our way to the beach and what good investment it was for the next 4 days. He was absolutely thrilled to be hitting the beach and doing his favourite activity e.v.e.r.y.d.a.y.
Recharging batteries after a morning of sun, sea and sand. More beach days awaiting, YAY!
