The Great Bondi to Coogee Walk

Bondi, Australia

Theres no rest for the wicked as they say; after the fun at Christmas, New Year and the all the rest, it was time to work off some those excess pounds. We met Trish a little later than planned (as per the norm!) in the city and got ourselves onto the beloved 333 prepay bus to Bondi Beach and got off by the cliffs. This was the first experience of Bondi for Tim, and so he was quite taken by just how many people can fit into one beach! I showed Tim where I worked for a month - now he could appreciate the view I had! From where I sat, I could see the entire length of the beach and getting there at before 8am meant that I could see Bondi for what it really is. And it is a beautiful beach with some fantastic waves! However, add in hundreds of tourists, even thousands on some days, and it can seem quite claustrophobic and a place where if youre not a sun worshipper, you just dont belong! Anyway, we chilled here for a while and soaked up the sun before we walked the whole beach, trying very hard to avoid geting sand in people's faces as we tried to make our way from one end of the beach to the other; and up the steps to lead onto the ocean walk to Coogee Beach.

The walk itself is very relaxing, but it is a long one, and before you know it you are overlooking the cliff tops and looking straight over the edge to see nothing but the sea and its vastness! Then of course you can head off and find yourselves some little lookoutpoints. After we crossed some more cliff tops and a huge old graveyard, we found ourselves in an abandoned cove. The scenery along the whole way is stunning and its surprising to know that its all only a stones throw away! We finally got to Coogee, a little cold and tired! The little workout was certainly much needed! But then it was time for home to get changed and treat urselves to a curry and a couple of beers for our hard efforts!
