On Thursday we made the most of the fine weather and took a ride out to Bondi to visit where my eldest daughter lived for almost a year back in 1999/2000. Bondi is known as a surfer's paradise - though it'd be challenging to avoid riding over a fellow surfer - even in late autumn the sea was teeming with wetsuits riding the waves.

Some shots of Bondi beach ...
We had a drink in the 'Icebergs Bar' at the top end of the beach where there are salt water pools you can swim in at high tide - it looked rather chilly, but not as much as it will do in mid-winter when they apparently put ice in the pool and some mad people jump in! Hence the name I suspect.
View across the harbour from Watson's Bay - not a narrowboat in sight!!!
Awesome to see these beautiful birds flying wild - a rainbow lorikeet and a kookaburra
Dramatic scenes from a cliff top walk
It's great to have Barry's amazing photography back on the blog; writing can be interesting but '...a picture paints a thousand words'
