Here in Sydney, we are fortunate to be staying with Liz and her family in lovely Manly.
Hilary first met Liz 29 years ago when they were both in Sydney on round-the-world trips. Because she fell in love with the swimming, sailing and outdoor lifestyle, Liz applied to emigrate as soon as she returned to the UK, and moved out in 1992.
Her boyfriend of the time, Robert followed her out here, and after 25 years of marriage they now have two girls who have followed in their parents’ sporting footsteps.
Manly is a sought-after Northern Beach suburb reached by the famous Manly Ferry, a scenic 25 minute trip from Circular Quay. Who needs to pay for a tourist harbour cruise when this trip takes you past the Opera House and then out to the Northern Beaches.
