The City and the Beach

Hello friends!  I hope you had a great weekend!  The family and I decided to really take advantage of Sydney and spent Friday night in the city.  We couldn’t wait to take our stroller out for a walk around the Royal Botanic Gardens and show Coops the famous Harbour (he is half Aussie you know!).

He was obviously very excited!

Well, at least we enjoyed the view!

We also took him to Hyde Park, which is so clean and really beautiful next to this huge church.

Since my birthday is coming up, my in-laws were nice enough to get the Hubs and I a room at Manly Beach for Saturday night.  I was super excited because obviously I love the beach and Sunday was scheduled to be a beautiful day.  It has been quite cloudy here so I was looking forward to some sun, sand and surf!


Check out the view from our balcony.  A little champagne to celebrate!

This was Cooper’s first time at the beach and we were pleased that he tolerated it pretty well!

Although he doesn’t look particularly happy, he didn’t cry and put up with having his feet put in the sand.

Plus, all the excitement at the beach really tuckered him out.  He took about a three hour nap in the afternoon!

Readers, do you like swimming in the ocean or are you a pool person?  Do you enjoy sitting on the sand or the grass?  Atlantic or Pacific?
