The last full day that I spent in Sydney was a Sunday. We didn't venture very far from Fiona's pad in Coogee in that we just motored and walked from the apartment along Coogee, Clovelley, Bronte, Tamarama and Bondi Beaches and the intervening coastal paths. It was a lovely, leisurely and very warm day.
|Early morning (as seen from the apartment balcony at breakfast) lifeguard training|
|By late morning every child in the area seems to be joining in one of the training programmes for water safety and awareness and first aid and swimming.|
|There was an incredible family feel about the whole thing with parents watching and helping and competitions too.|
|Tamarama Beach: sitting on the café deck watching volleyball and the world pass by|
|with a couple of pugs which everyone stopped to play with|
|and a last look at Bondi|
|with some rock fishing|
|and a sight I confess I have never seen when people fish from the rocks below my house in Eagleton on Lewis (after all can you imagine pink Crocs on Lewis?)|
And that, folks, is probably my last Sydney and Australian post bar one. The last one will have no beaches but will, I hope, be well worth waiting for.
