On Sunday my boyfriend and I enjoyed a picnic at one of Sydney’s greatest picnic destinations; Clarkes Point Reserve in Woolwich, a tiny suburb located on a peninsula with great views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the city. The Reserve was full of people attending to their own picnics and the water was packed with a fleet of little sailing boats as children were learning how to sail. It was a relaxing setting especially as the weather wasn’t too hot nor cold however it was a bit windy; that’s expected if you’re going to be so close to the water. I prepared a platter of salami, prosciutto, cheese and I bought a long three different varieties of bread rolls. I forgot to buy olives!
Picnics at this time of the year are great because it’s not too hot and they’re a great opportunity to laze around and obtain some vitamin D. Wearing sunscreen and a hat is essential. I really need to buy a new stylish hat because currently I wear a sports hat and it often spoils an outfit. But at the same time I don’t care because I’m prone to acquiring freckles.
Where: Clarkes Point Reserve, Woolwich
