Beautiful Manly

This was one of the beautiful sunrises I was fortunate to see in Manly, Sydney, Australia.

Happy days!

Moving Day

What a day today has been! So many mixed emotions…from feeling sad to be leaving where we have lived for the past 3 years to moving to my first ever house and a new beginning!

I was hoping and praying that I would be able to see one last sunrise in Manly and this photo is of it. I was able to take this before the removal men arrived (they came at 6:45am). The men were amazing I have to say. Nothing was too much trouble, not once did I here them moan or complain and they were super quick, considering they were being paid an hourly rate.

By 10am, they had finished loading the truck and we said that we would meet them at our new house, as we had to collect the keys for the house from the real estate guy and get the final completion done.

We drove to to Avoca Beach, went into the office, were told by a phone call that the house was indeed ours, then the key was given to us, along with a bucket filled to the brim with goodies from the agent, I then got emotional, gave him a big hug and that was it….I am now a house owner!!

The removal men were there in our garden, lying on the grass waiting for us, we opened up and they moved us in.

Goodbye Manly….hello Avoca Beach

Last Night in Manly

Tonight is my last night in Manly. I have loved living here and truth be told, I am desperately going to miss it, but I can always come back and visit right? Besides, tomorrow, we start a new chapter in our lives….

This photo is of just some of the boxes that we have packed, rady for our move tomorrow. Afraid it’s not a lovely sunrise or us set, but it represents my life….right now.

Only a Few Remain

I am very conscious of the fact that I have only a few more days left to watch the sunrise from my apartment, before we move on Thursday. This is something that I am going to massively miss. Time permitting in the mornings, I will hopefully be able to get to my local beach to photograph the sun rising over the ocean, I guess time will tell with routines etc…

For now, I am making the most of what I have got!

Sunrise, Manly, NSW, Australia

I don’t have all that much to say today, other than this was a good start to my week.

Manly Sunrise

I ran out of my apartment this morning to watch the sunrise. It dawned on me (pardon the pun) that I’ve only got a week of sunrises to see in Manly. It’s probably going to be one of the greatest things that I am going to miss when we move next week, seeing the ocean from our apartment and seeing sunrises in Manly.

I’ve got to enjoy them whilst I still can!!

Talking Sky

I ran in every direction to get this photograph, trying to find a good spot, the sky was absolutely incredible! It’s not very often we get a good sunset in Manly, it’s always sunrises! This was the exception!
