The other week, another mom and I took a herd of boys on a walk around the headland at North Curl Curl, towards Dee Why, as our homeschool activity for the day. As you can see, the views were incredible. I didn't manage to get a shot of what topped the BOYS' day...a military cargo plane making multiple passes on a steep bank around the headlands, right next to us, before heading out to sea. My boy had brought his binoculars, so they got some use there, lol.
At the Dee Why side, we sat on the rocks next to the baths (a salt water pool filled from the ocean, and usually, cut out of the rocks...I've never seen them in the States, but they are very common here), and had lunch, while avoiding the divebombing seagulls suspended in mid air next to us.
While we were sitting there, this very depressed looking kid came along and tossed flowers into the water. It seemed to have some significance...I felt like a voyeur with my camera and my lunch, sitting there.
After lunch, the kids went swimming in the baths, and cruising through the rock pools, and the other mom and I just watched the surfers.
We like that kind of school day. :p
