Easter hiking

Spit to Manly

Today saw me getting back to hiking, something I’ve not done for a couple of months. I did the Spit to Manly walk, one of the best-known ones around Sydney. It was a great hike, with the first third being up-and-down dirt trails through bush, the middle third being wide flat paths across the headland, and the last third skirting the residential areas around Manly. There are a few points we had to wade as the tide was in. There were good views, lots of other hikers, and some Aboriginal rock art along the way. Despite information claiming it should take between 3 and 4 hours, we knocked it off in just over 2. Must be my super-fitness.

Once in Manly we met some friends at 4 Pines, an excellent craft beer spot. I’d been wanting to try it for a while, and it’s  winner: good beer, good food, and a good location (if you get there early).
