Sydney’s Eastern Beaches

Well, you lucky duck state siders, I see spring is finally in the air.  We just changed our clocks back down unda.  The days are shorter, the weather is rainy and cool, so it feels like the appropriate time to share all of our summer beach photos.

I have to admit, I’ve been hoarding them.

It seemed a bit rude to post photos of us as we frolicked under sunny skies in the midst of the northern hemisphere’s polar vortex.

But now as I see the tulips begin to poke through in NYC, let’s take a tour of Sydney’s Eastern Beaches.  They are so good.  So good I tell you.

See Coogee Beach there down on the bottom of the map?  That’s where you want to start.  There is a path you can follow along the water’s edge up to Clovelly, where snorkeling for little guys can be had.

When you’re done snorkeling and it’s time for lunch, you can head up towards Bronte Beach, but take a left on Macpherson so you can eat at the Blue Ducks.  I know their cookbook had that 3L milk misprint, but no matter.  It’s the most laid back, delicious place in town.

When you finish lunch you begin the descent down to Bronte Beach.

Keep going and you find yourself on the famous Bronte to Bondi cliff walk where you pass two more lovely beaches before you even arrive at the touristy delight of Bondi Beach.

The end of the walk is the iconic Icebergs tidal pool.  You can swim in it all year round and the people who do so take it very seriously.

As for last week’s vocabulary quiz, I appreciated the responses you sent me privately via email.  And while a noble effort was made, we know the person who really knows all the terms is Carol.  BUT, my Dad wins the prize, and not because he cheated and looked up all the definitions on urbandictionary.com, but because he wrote this response.

So I invited these two Shelias over for brekky after they dropped the little ones off at kindy. One’s a muso from Melbs and the other a togs model from Shangers.  Since it was a little late when they arrived I decided to forgo brekky and serve a chooka instead. As I was walking into the dining room a bunch of mozzies attacked me! I really stacked it and made a dogs breakfast of the chooka…..fair dinkum!!! NOW DO I GET MY WINE!!!!

What I love the most about his response is I never made any offer of a prize of wine, yet somehow he was able to add that in.

1.  Would you like some brekky breakfast?

2.  Are you ready for kindy pre-school (not kindergarten, go figure)?

3.  Grab your togs swimwear.

4.  Those mozzies mosquitos really got you!

5. My brother’s a muso musician.

6. Are you joining him in Melbs Melbourne?

7. That was a bit of a dog’s breakfast a mess.

8. Fair dinkum True!  

9. Yeah, they’re in Shangers Shanghai.

10.  We’ll just pick up a chooka chicken.

11.  Oh yeah, he really stacked it fell!
