After far too many half price margaritas last night at El Loco, Brody and I thought the perfect way to spend today would be to lie on the beach. We took a half hour ferry ride from Circular Quay to Manly Beach. Manly Beach is the second most famous beach in Sydney and a definite tourist attraction. It was packed! The promenade is full of over priced coffee shops and surf shops.... And surfer babes! Although, the eye candy wasn't quite as good as the other day at Bondi Beach! The water at Manly had some of the biggest waves I've ever seen, the swimmers were only allowed to swim waist deep between two flags because the rifts were way too dangerous. I hear every beach in Australia makes you swim between the red and yellow flags. It makes swimming not as enjoyable because everyone is squished into one area of the beach... So I stay away from the water and just lay in the sand and bake! Brody and I had a great pizza dinner at Hugo's while we waited for the ferry to take us back to the city. Later that night, Brody, his flatmates, and I went down to The Star Casino for some famous dumplings (which i cant remember the name of the stand) and a cocktail at Cherry Lounge. No gambling for this lady, although I did get a bit tempted when I saw the 1 cent machines tucked away in the corner!
