The cliff walk between Bondi and Coogee

This section is between Bronte and Clovelly, looking north. The closest beach is Bronte, the one in the middle distance Tamarama, and the nitch between headlands in the distance is the bay occupied by Bondi Beach.

In my opinion, winteris the best season for walking in Sydney. Today it was about 21 degrees, perfect for walking without being too hot.

I sat on these rocks enjoying the sun, and looked down at the trio sunning themselves:

Just below me to the right, this woman was catching the winter rays.

Clouds, Water and Sky writing

Yes, they were advertising this.

As one wit observed: I think part of the failure comes down to the fact that we don't call boobs 'hooters' in Australia. And I'm not sure a restaurant called 'tits' would get far.

Botany Bay - Lady Robinson Beach

A very bracing swim - the air temp was about 15 degrees

Sydney, New York

I recently spotted this bridge, looking for all the world like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, on the taxi ride to JFK airport.

It is the Hell gate Bridge, built before the Sydney one. It's a railway bridge in Astoria, Queens.

There's some really interesting information about it here and here (and much better pictures!)

Peeling paint on door

This old door is being used as a back gate. See the original photo, a close up of the peeling paint at Sydney Daily Photo.
