There’s something about Bondi. It has its own magnetic pull. Ever since that first morning we arrived in Sydney, too early to collect the keys to our rental apartment, we took off in the rental car instead. To the city’s most iconic beach, our lives squeezed into 6 suitcases in the boot and backseat. Not daring to abandon all our worldly possessions for the pursuit of a hot drink, we sat in the car, watching surfers arrive to catch the first break of the day, shops roll up shutters ready for trade. We soaked in the scene and had no doubts about the massive move to the other side of the world, we had just that morning made.
Three months later we’ve felt ourselves drawn back to Bondi Beach on several occasions. By no means Sydney’s best or most beautiful beach, it still has something about it that can’t keep us away. Something which draws tourists in by the truckload and leaves locals declaring their heart belongs here.
I hope these pictures taken over the last few ‘wintry’ weeks give you a little taste of that Bondi magic.
Do you think there is something special about Bondi? Can you help me name it?!
