Bondi to Bronte

Just before Christmas, I walked from Bondi Beach to Bronte with my mother and her partner. It was the first Christmas outside the UK for all three of us and it was an act of almost deliberate incongruity for us to walk along the beach, squint in the sunshine, swim in the surf, walk along the coastline with other tourists, stop to look at the flowers and the incredible natural rock formations, envy the beachfront houses, marvel at the blue skies, and finish up with fish and chips from Fishy Bite in Bronte - an unpromising outlet, and a longish wait, for really only moderately good fast food. Still, it was a beautiful day, and food always tastes better in the fresh air.

  1. Thanks for these lovely photos. I hope you're still around next November when that stretch of coastline becomes the showcase for Sculpture by the Sea. The walk then becomes an even more spectacular treat.

  2. Thank you! I just missed out on Sculptures by the Sea this year and will definitely be going next time around.
