Penne Cole's thoughts on food, travel and more
In my traipses and travels across Sydney and surrounds, I have come across some truly weird and wonderful, out of this world sights.
Take this picture, for example. After an idyllic picnic in the Royal National Park, we scrambled down to the beach, only to discover that it was covered with these strange growths. I’d never encountered them before; they were strangely crunchy to walk on, and I didn’t know if I would destroy them if I did, so I avoided them where possible. On returning home, I discovered they are a type of seaweed known as Neptune’s necklace – quite an apt name.
On a hike one day near Balgowlah, we came across one solitary, beautiful blue mushroom, poking out of the fallen twigs. It was the middle of winter so everything was rather brown, making this mushroom stand out. I have no idea what it is, and I’m 99% sure that it’s wildly poisonous, but it was definitely beautiful.
On another hike, this time near Cronulla, we came across this barren, rocky landscape by the coast. Take the beautiful blue skies out of the picture, and you could easily imagine you’re on the moon.
Sydney is typically known for its beautiful harbour, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and its beaches – usually Bondi and Manly. But there’s so much more to this beautiful city, so if at all possible, take the time to explore further!
