Around us, this is the closest we get to a hike... Really, our mountains are barely even Mountains. When I lived in Copper Mountain, Colorado I lived higher than the highest "mountain" in Australia. Yeah, we are pretty flat here. One thing we do have a lot of though is coastline, beautiful beautiful coastline. This is the start of our gorgeous walk from The Spit to Manly. Yes, we have a suburb in Sydney called The Spit. It may have only just occurred to me (after almost 30 years of living in Sydney) that it is quite an odd name for such a pricey and lovely area.
