The next time you find yourself looking for something fun to do on a sunny day in Sydney, promise me you will consider the following for an outing: Jump in the car, drive to Palm Beach and hire a boat ($120.00 for 2 hours for a cute boat that can take up to 12 people) from Barrenjoey Boating Services. Don't worry - you don't need to be a seafaring person, the boats go so slowly, so you only need a car drivers licence - or, my 7 year old niece. Putt around Pittwater like we did and choose your favourite waterfront home (it's good to dream). Once the cruising is complete, grab a table at flower-filled The Boathouse for a late lunch. The lovely day comes with a word of warning though - it makes you want Monday to be so very far, far away.
