Though I’m living in the Bronte/Waverly area and I can see the ocean from my window I have yet to go to Bronte Beach or finish the upper part of the Coastal Walk which goes from Bronte to Coogee. I’m sort of in the mid-point. So today we are off to walk it all!
It’s October 1 and Labour Day (labor for Americans), a national holiday in Australia. Though a bit on the chilly side the sun is out and it is just the perfect weather to walk around. Being an Angelino has diminished my tolerance to cold and at the least breeze I am shivering! Don’t know how I am going to handle the real cold in New Zealand.
The street has these clever signs painted on the floor indicating what you will find ahead and the benefits of walking. Wish I had taken the time to photograph them all, they were so amusing. I took a photo of only one and it was far from being the best.
Up till now the park had little to no people but as we see the beach ahead of us so come the masses. It’s a holiday, it’s beautiful outside and hence it is crowded. And though I am not one for crowds there is a festive air that makes it all okay.
Even when the seagulls just stare and wonder what the heck they are doing.
The sea is rougher here and rockier making it more fun to photograph. This photo doesn’t show me at my best but it does show well how I felt.
Further up there’s Waverly Cemetery which has to have the best view ever! If I were to be buried I want to be in this prime real estate spot.
We end up in Coogee. Time to take the bus back ‘cause we are definitely walked out!
