Coastal walk from Bondi to Coogee

Coastal walk from Bondi to Coogee

The coastal walk from Bondi to Coogee is a fabulous way to get a bit of exercise with a gorgeous backdrop. As usual, I’m glad I packed both my umbrella and my sunglasses: stormy skies closed down the beaches, but the sun was shining by the time I ended.

Bronte Beach was a bit drizzly, but I was finally able to tuck my umbrella away as I watched the surfers.

Waverly Cemetery in Sydney, AustraliaI loved the chance to wander through a cemetery, although I was surprised how ill-kept the graves were. The cemetery in France is so well-kept even though many of the graves are incredibly old!
