Sydney by Sea





We were lucky enough to hit the water yesterday with 20 or so of our friends for a final preChristmas catch up.

The sun was out and Sydney harbour put on a sparkler for us to swim and dine (and play banangrams) while bobbing around in the water.

There is a peaceful tranquility that comes when you are hostage on location, so have nothing to do except relax and enjoy your universe.






As the sun set, I realised how much I would miss summer in Sydney, when our beautiful city puts on her finery for all to see. It is a city I will never tire of.

Many of the guests who came yesterday are friends of  30 plus years, and they have shaped my little world in so many ways. Their friendships are truly the gifts that matter most in this life.




May you too love life over this holiday season.

  4. It's true that you have to escape and appreciate your surroundings when you're 'hostage'. I love how you've put that. And what amazing surroundings you had! Thanks so much for sharing with #HighlightsofHappy

  7. Sydney Harbour is so spectacular! My favourite way to travel into the city is by ferry!

  11. It looks lovely and I've never been on the water near Sydney.

    I've actually booked a sunset boat cruise for my 50th and am taking a small group of friends out. I'm not sure the weather will stay nice (over Xmas - New Year) so I have a backup plan but it'll be lovely if it is fine. #teamlovinlife

  12. Thank you again dear Lydia for pics of this wonderful city and harbour. Mind you the traffic and building boom is very off-putting to us each time we come down to the hospital, but seeing these reminds me of living near the harbour beach of Forty Baskets as a kid, and going on the Manly ferry in all kinds of weather back and forth to town as a teen.

  16. It really is a different perspective. The last time I did a boat trip around the harbour (under the bridge etc) was 2008. Must be time to do it again
