Kerstin likes the Northern Beaches in Sydney so we rent a flat in Dee Why for a week, the birthday week.
Dee Why Beach and Manly in the background.
The long beaches are made for walking .
The Long Reef close to Collaroy
Next beach is Collaroy, and Narrabeen behind.
Evening in Dee Why.
It's not far from Manly.
Twenty minutes with a bus, and we have a rainy but brilliant night in Manly.
Suddenly Nelly came into the restaurant!
We thought she was in Bologna but no, Claire flew her in to this event, a birthday lunch at Colloroy Long Reef Golf Club.
The two conspirators.
And of course, the birthday cake.
Robyn and Torbjörn drove more than a thousand kilometers from Melbourne to visit us in Dee Why. They were also deeply involved in the surprise and picking up Nelly at the airport as well as successfully keeping the secret.
Thanks a lot Robyn and Torbjörn for a wonderful time!
