Surf's up at Manly

On a thoroughly blustery and not very warm day in December 2012 we went for lunch with friends on Manly Beach, Sydney. The surfers were out in force, and the local surf lifesavers volunteers were using the conditions to stage an exercise.

 A lifesaver surfs in to shore on a surf rescue board.

 Other volunteers bringing an inflatable boat in.

 Two surf rescue boats in the distance patrol the small area between the flags. The surfers have all chosen to be outside the flags to catch the breaks. (Update: Simon has pointed out to me that there is a $250 fine for surfing within the flags, because of the risk of injuring swimmers.)

 A group of surf lifesaver volunteers heads out into the waves -- this was just an exercise, they weren't heading out to save someone.

Surfboards for hire.

A la cuisine hier: Pasta with arrabbiata sauce -- I slightly overdid the chili, but it was OK.
