Loving Sydney, Loving Life


Have had a crazy busy few weeks, with many frustrations and been a little down in the dumps, we spent a stellar Saturday on the water, as those of you who follow my Instagram may already know. Sydney Harbour is truly beautiful, and when you're lucky enough to get invited on a boat with your friends, it's even better! The ability to instantaneously forget all your woes is amazing!








A sensational seafood feast and then we toured the city coves on the way to Chinaman's Beach for a swim (is that still what it's called? It seems a little offensive now).












Lots of fun was had by all and after a very busy weekend, it was most definitely the highlight. The water was this stunning green but my phone, which is the worst, wouldn't pick up any of the colours! 









It was a good reminder of the fact that no matter what else is going on, there are still so many things to love about life!











We even saw a submarine out on the water, which I've never seen before!





What are you loving this week?

Do you get out on boats often? Ferry, kayak, tinny?




We did miss the ice cream boat because we were too slow to notice it (but neither did the kids so there was no complaints!

  9. I actually don't know Sydney very well at all. I've visited a handful of times but only for short periods and not been required to travel much around town, so don't have any idea what's where. It's certainly stunning though and I love your pics!

  10. I miss boating. My Dad used to race powerboats, and when he wasn't racing, he was fishing, so I grew up on the water. I also used to go sailing on Sydney harbour, which was fabulous - so invigorating! #TeamLovinLife

  11. I love the water and being out on the water. Sydney is the perfect place to do this. It always is a mood lifter I find. :) #TeamLovinLife

  12. Looks like you had a fun day, and totally agree about how impressive Sydney looks from the water. I was really lucky recently to depart and then return by cruise ship which was amazing, but that's not to say that I wouldn't also love chugging about on the Manly Ferry. #TeamLovinLife

  13. Sydney Harbour is definitely one in a million. You're so lucky to live "just down the road". People fly from across the globe to see this view. Gorgeous.
    Thanks for joining the linky! Perfect addition.

  14. we're in WA and I've only been to Sydney once - but it's definitely on my shortlist of places to revisit - we loved it.

  15. I didn't catch up on Leanne's linky yet but found you next to me on Jen's when I posted a Sydney theme too! Last time I was on the Harbour was on a ferry. I used to do little day trips into the city, hop on a ferry to Mosman and return just to have the experience and take loads of pics! You've captured it all so well! Denyse x

  16. On a blue day there's just no beating the harbour. We spent Sunday looking at it. Glorious. Visiting from Loving' Life

  17. I'm not a huge fan of smaller boats, likes tinnies. Bigger boats I don't mind, and I love going on the Sydney ferries, which I haven't done for 10 years! How I'd love to visit again!
