Coogee to Bondi beach walk (on a winters day)

My first attempt at a photo essay. I decided I’d have a go at photo essay’s as I have been seeing some very lovely ones on the net lately, most notably over at www.theonlinedarkroom.com . So I grabbed my Nikon FM and loaded it with some Kodak Double-X (motion picture film). The Coogee to Bondi beach walk is a 6.5 Km coastal walk between two of Sydney’s most iconic beaches.

First stop Gordon’s bay no-one pays much attention to the signs ;-)

The protected beach at Clovelley is very popular with families as well. Where as Tammara beach is where the beautiful people go to be seen in their teensy weensy bikini’s.

The kids play football(soccer) while the older people play lawn bowls

 The historic Waverly cemetery marks the half way point of the walk.

A nice spot to soak up the winter sun and watch the surfers, or read a good book.

Although with all the lovely beaches I cant understand why this surfer is surfing so close to the rocks.

┬áBondi ice bergs sea baths is one of Sydney’s most iconic outdoor swimming pools. The Sydney coast line has literally hundreds of these sea baths / rock pools / swimming pools. Most of them are owned by the local city council and are free to use, others like the Bondi one are privately owned and charge a small fee.
