Bondi. After the Harbour, it would have to be Sydney’s most iconic location to visit! And for so many good reasons.
After our nudie swim, Mel and I made the trip out to this beautiful side of town, where there are cafes a-plenty, guys and girls coast past on skateboards and bikes, shirts are optional and the sun shines bright! Walking along the boardwalk there’s so much to take in – the surf, the hoards of people, delicious food and drinks getting served up to happy tables, even a stretch hummer limo with some unknown VIPs!
Mel and I made our way along to the North Shore and grabbed an Acai bowl each, then found a grassy spot where we could look out at the ocean and people watch. A few of Mel’s friends met us here (after a trip to the nearby markets) and here we were introduced, talked about the gorgeous day and vacations and trips we have planned or want to plan, admired the beautiful bodies walking past, while soaking up as much of the beaming sun as we could!
Time passed quickly, and our little group to split up – Mel and I made our way back to the other end of the beach to Icebergs with her friend Shan. We checked in, and nabbed a fantastic table out on the balcony where we could take in the view over the pools and out to the pacific ocean. We shared jugs of Pimms and bowls of hot chips and talked for hours. Before we knew it, it was time to leave to catch our flight home (which we made in the knick of time) and to say goodbye to new and old friends – until next time!
One of the best weekends I’ve ever had, shared with some incredible people. I felt so very grateful as I arrived back to Brisbane, knowing I had some stand out memories to savour for a long time to come.
