The discovery of 30 cent ice cream!
Today we left the Surfside hostel - thank god! We checked out and took the bus to Central station, which is where our next hostel is. Once we had left our bags in the room, which is again a shared dorm, we went to Circular Quay and caught the ferry to Manly Beach. We managed to find a good spot on the sand, where we could watch the surfers and the people trying to swim where they were not supposed to who got shouted at over the PA by the lifeguards! We had about three hours of sunbathing before it got cold and we sat shivering. The area around Manly Beach is really cute, and we ate at a restaurant near the front from their $10 menu. On the way back to the ferry we bought ice creams from Macdonalds for 30 cents - amazing find!
