Balmoral beach

Balmoral beach in Mosman is one of Sydney families' favourite beaches. When we went there some weeks ago, I understood why.

You can cycle there...

There are nice shady spots and a decent stretch of beach. Number 3 likes the outdoors and she stayed happily in the shade. We let her have her first feel of the sand.

You can swim safely there. There is a boardwalk (with, erm, shark netting) which surrounds an area of water. The kids love jumping off this platform.

There is a place to fish just off to the side of this platform. On the Sunday, there were many trying their luck...

I was lucky enough to catch the action as one of the lines had some activity and this salmon came up at the end of it.

There is a nice playground nearby, but the kids are happy to use the original play equipment - trees! At first I take pity on the trees but then I think : If I were a tree, I'd love the attention. I'd say to families, 'Come sit under my shade', "Come embrace my branches', 'Come see the view I see'... (yes, I  have fanciful thoughts)

The unique grassy area to the center of the beach is a lovely picnic area...

...and it has a great view of the harbour. I've seen these blue waters and blue sky many, many times, but I still somehow have my breath taken away yet again.
