Looking over a Remembrance Day crowd in Martin Place were these smart policemen.
The NSW Police Force is one of the largest police organisations in the English speaking world. Known as the Night Watch, it began as the first civilian police force in Australia, formed by Governor Arthur Phillip in 1789. In 1862 all Watch Teams were combined to form the NSW Police Force. A few years back their name changed to NSW Police Service,recently their name has reverted to back to the POLICE FORCE!

Fill up your water bottles here. A great idea for all those who are attached to their plastic water bottle.
This was taken on a recent visit to Manly Beach.
I reckon it is a better beach than its rival across the harbour, Bondi Beach.
- you can arrive by ferry
- the relaxing walk along The Corso from the ferry to the beach
- the Norfolk Island Pines
- the Steyne Hotel

Some of the plants around the lighthouse, anyone know what this is?
This is the lonely grave next to the lighthouse. It is the grave of the first keeper George Mulhall, struck by lightning when he went outside to get some firewood. His son, the next keeper was also struck in later years but not fatally.

Made from local sandstone, this is the third lighthouse on this site. Here is the copper earth to take those lightning strikes to ground. Tomorrow is a sad story about one of those strikes.
View from the top looking South to the ritzy suburb of Palm Beach.
