Hunting for street art

8 April 2020 As I’m sure you can all appreciate, some days you have to be creative when searching for things to do in isolation. Today was one such day. So this afternoon we decided to combine our standard supermarket sweep with a hunt for some local street art around Manly. Here are some ofContinue reading “Hunting for street art”

Yoga, swimming and photography – another day in lock-down

7 April 2020 Yesterday was a great day and I was on a real high after completing my first ever Manly to Shelly swim. Today, was busy, but not quite as exciting. The morning started with the usual home workout which I’ve now increased to 1.5 hours in duration… The workout ended with a bitContinue reading “Yoga, swimming and photography – another day in lock-down”

Manly to Shelly Beach swim with a dusky whaler shark

6 April 2020 Today was a big day for me, it was the first time I have attempted the Manly to Shelly beach ocean swim – and it was amazing. I even saw a small shark! I set off with my friend Tom from Shelly beach… We hugged the shore line as that’s where theContinue reading “Manly to Shelly Beach swim with a dusky whaler shark”

From the earth to the ocean

5 April 2020 For anyone who knows me or has been reading this blog, you’ll know that running is an important part of my life. As well as keeping me active and helping to keep the pounds off, I also find it meditative and it is by far the best way for me to clearContinue reading “From the earth to the ocean”

Quarantine cupcakes

4 April 2020 Another wild Saturday night in isolation. I’ve been struggling for things to do recently. My staple daily activities tended to involve seeing friends, swimming, gyming, eating out, hitting the pub and enjoying the beach. None of these activities are possible in self-isolation. I can’t even run at the moment due to myContinue reading “Quarantine cupcakes”

Isolation – the things I miss

3 April 2020 The weather hasn’t been great the past couple of days, so I haven’t been out and about taking pictures. Instead, I’ve spent some time going through old photos and memories. This has made me quite nostalgic, so I thought today’s post would focus on the things I miss about life before covid-19Continue reading “Isolation – the things I miss”

The Spit to Manly walk

2 April 2020 I’m conscious that yesterday’s post focusing on how our lives had changed in March was all doom and gloom. So no negative vibes in today’s post I promise. In fact, today was a good day. We’re only allowed to leave the house for essential activities, one of which is exercise. On thisContinue reading “The Spit to Manly walk”

Reflecting on March 2020: The month that changed our lives

1 April 2020 Today was rather uneventful other than the standard daily beach run, workout and trip to the shops. So I decided to focus on a slightly heavier subject – how the coronavirus pandemic changed my life (and all of our lives) in March 2020. No April foolery here I’m afraid. A new dreamContinue reading “Reflecting on March 2020: The month that changed our lives”
