Nineteen

Yesterday was my birthday, and I spent the day with a bunch of friends at Bondi. Despite the fact it's mid-autumn, it was lovely beach weather (as promised by the forecast). In some ways, it was even better than going to the beach in summer, because the sun wasn't searing and I didn't get sunburnt at all.

Macarons I bought as a treat from the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place. It's no Laduree (although judging by their prices they seem to think they are), but these my favourite ones in Sydney... and you can't eat macarons on a (real) beach in Paris.

Like I said, it was gorgeous weather and pretty clouds.

It started getting a bit cloudy and cool later in the afternoon.



Moo burgers for dinner.

Then Alice led us to this Mexican place on the other side of the beach for frozen margaritas. It was a bit of a walk and I was all Al, where is this? Alice, does this place even exist?. But it turned out that it does exist, and it's a pretty cool place (I won't question you again, Al) with awesome decor. We didn't get any food, though, because we were stuffed from dinner.




Afterwards we made our way back to the bus stop by cutting across the beach.

I'd never been on the beach at night, it's so different! The waves take on a completely different, spooky, quality.




Overall, it was a blast (and for some reason, I'm sore all over). It seems we caught one of the last days of sun, because it's apparently going to rain all week (can you tell I love reading the weather forecast?). //ETA: 100th post on this blog!

  2. Ooh, I still need to find some macaroons to try for the first time, they always looks so delicate in cute colours. Although they look delicious, those burgers look like they would fill you up to the brim haha :)

  15. Happy Belated Birthday!
    It looks like you had a wonderful day, and you did pick a good day for a day spent at the beach because I heard that for the rest of this week, there's a possible chance of flooding!? Kind of ruins the holidays, gah.

    And I seriously just spent twenty seconds staring at the second photo! It looks so dreamy and perfect. I still remember the clouds that day because they looked so pretty, haha :)

  21. I wanted to leave a comment on what you said about macaroons on my blog and here these yummy things make me hungry once again :D They're looking just as delicious as those from Ladurée (and yes, they're the nicest things indeed, I could eat them all day). Really, Ladurée should send me a package of at least 100 pieces for free :P
    And eating them on the beach is definitely on my to-do-list now.
