I was running late, and so I paid a few extra dollars to catch the fast ferry. With only a few people on board, I couldn’t help but notice I was amongst a handful of middle aged nerdy blokes taking a close up look at one of the cruise ships at Sydney’s Circular Quay. “What next?”, I thought to myself. “Bird watching?”. Although the weather wasn’t perfect (it wasn’t terrible either), I enjoyed a terrific Saturday afternoon with friends, celebrating a birthday at Manly’s 16ft Skiff Club. Here are some photographs and video taken along the way.
