By the sea shore

Technically, you could say that my Sunday was a failure of a day. We'd planned on going to the beach, but, as forecasted, the morning turned out chilly and drizzly. We decided to go to Bondi Beach anyway, so that we could check out the markets - but it had closed early and we got there too late. So we wandered up the main road and had lunch at Moo. The area's got a nice vibe, but it's too beachy (well, its main attraction is the beach) for my taste. We then plopped ourselves on the grass and pretended that it was what we'd meant to do all along.



The weather actually got a little sunny, and we cursed ourselves for not having brought our swimmers. Then again, the water would've still been freezing.



WL's bag.




I think there's a bit of fashion photographer potential in Jenny, she's always so snap happy when I ask her to take pictures of me. And she takes good ones too! Unfortunately they're ruined by my... face (squinting in the sun is not a good look).


WL's Dali watch, which we got her for her birthday. Yes, the hands are his moustache.



A big storm started rolling in, proving the weather forecast right after all, and we bailed. All in all, not a bad day. This week's meant to get warmer so we've planned a proper beach trip, fingers crossed it goes ahead!

  6. All of your photos look beautiful! I particularly love the one gif that shows the water moving.
    And your outfit is gorgeous, as well! I'm glad that you had a good time though. :) I'm jealous of how nice everything looks because where I live, it's currently the middle of winter.

    I went to Bondi Beach four years ago, and it's nice to know that some things haven't changed.

  9. Sigh, Sydney weather is so bipolar! However, I would love going to the beach with the weather we're experiencing right now, of course not for a swim but for the view. I read too much books & expect it to be some sort of nice place to go to with a significant other! HAHA!

    Last time I went to Bondi, a big storm was rolling in as well and everyone was rushing to go home causing such a big line at the bus stop! Hopefully you didn't experience that!

  20. The day you visited Bondi looked great because it wasn't packed with people, because whenever I go, it's always filled with people and it gets annoying trying to find your stuff, haha. It's a shame you forgot to bring your swimwear! I love the gif :)

  23. Where did you get:
    - That skirt
    - That watch

    My favourite thing to do at Bondi is eat at Bondi Burrito and watch the fitness freaks doing their thang. Makes me feel like I'm at Venice beach or something.

    1. I got the skirt from Glassons and I don't remembember the site I bought the Dali watch from, but if you google "Dali watch" you should be able to find it.

      I did notice a lot of fitness freaks!
