Bondi to Tamarama

We had awesome weather over the Easter break. To make the most of it, we did a beach day last Wednesday. I actually like beaching in autumn more than in summer, because it's not as hot and the UV isn't as strong so you don't feel like you're actually being roasted. Plus, fewer people.


First, lunch at Porch in the northern part of Bondi Beach, which has a disturbingly healthy menu. I went for the steak sandwich.


We strolled down along the beach... here's YY.


Here's one of the murals along the path.


We skipped Bondi Beach entirely and headed along the Bondi-Coogee walk, which is quite beautiful.


OMG Wai Lam get down from there!


Me, thanks to Wai Lam.


Our aim was Tamarama, one of the smaller beaches along the walk about 15 minutes away.


We sunbathed and swam for about an hour and a half, until golden hour.



Lots of photo ops as we headed back to Bondi because in the afternoon light suddenly everything looked even better.




We were starving (something about swimming in the ocean does that) so we finished the day with churros.

  2. Never heard the word "beaching" before you know, that's new to me. Your photos of the beach look great. Is that a man-carved shelf your mate in sitting on? Those big long thin things, are they churros?

  7. BRO those are some sick Nikes. I hate the beach (got caught in a rip once, ughhh so scary) but these photos make it look fun. Or maybe that is just the churros. YUM.

  11. I've been to Bondi beach before, but in winter, so it didn't look as gorgeous as this!

    I absolutely love the gangster dog mural.

  15. You look so cute in that photo! I love your outfit, especially the sunglasses and backpack!! Currently trying to find a good travel/camera bag for when I am in rural Mexico this summer...any thoughts?

    1. Hmmm i don't have any camera specific-bags! When I travel I'm always torn between cross-body bags (easier to keep an eye on your stuff) and backpacks (can carry more + less strain on your back). I'm thinking go with a backpack if you're going to be in rural Mexico, which I assume won't be as crowded = less pickpockets!

  16. I hate the beach in the summer, it has none of the qualities I look for.

  18. The beach and churros?! I am so envious~ That water is so blue too.

  19. I'm super hungry for churros now. And it must be nice to actually not feel cold at the beach. I guess I love the beach any time of the year, but mostly when it's not too busy. But then again, that's here in Holland. This looks magnificent, and summery still. ;)
