The Corso, Manly Beach, Sydney
On our recent holiday in Sydney we took the ferry to Manly Beach. The ferry ride on the beautiful Sydney Harbour is highly recommended as one of the delights of visiting Sydney.
While we were at Manly we were amused at the antics of the children playing on The Corso, the main street leading from the ferry wharves to the beach. A series of fountains had been installed in the footpath. Every half minute or so they would gently raise the water up about a half metre and then die down again. This was repeated over and over. It was an excellent way for the children (and any adults) to cool off, or to wash off the saltiness and sand from the beach.
It looked like fun. Kind of made one wish one was a child again. Actually, there is nothing and no-one stopping any adults who wanted to have just as much fun as the children.
