Well today I spent the day with Mike and Sarah in Coogee and Bondi beach area. Mike is a colleague of my father's. He and Sarah are working down under for the year. Rough life, let me tell you!
We went for a great long walk from Coogee breach along the coast past Bronte beach, and as far as Bundi beach. Along the way we stopped off to snorkel in the clear beautiful waters. We also paused to watch a surfing competition. As I said, rough life they have here.
The beaches were packed as today was a public holiday day as part of Australia Day long weekend. It also marks the end of summer holidays for most people.
Mike and Sarah have been too good to me. When I arrived at their place they had a beautiful bed made up for me, fresh towels and everything! They made us all a picnic lunch and then took me out to dinner at a wonderful restaurant along the Coogee beach.
I am sorry that I have to leave tomorrow. I told them that I would more than happy to just move in with them. hehe
Tomorrow I am off to the Blue Mountains and then I will board an overnight bus to Byron Bay.
