Oh, glorious day. The sun was super bright today in Sydney, so Pat & I took it upon ourselves to do the Bondi to Bronte seaside walk. Excellent choice! We were met with clear skies, beautiful waters and a cool breeze during the 2.5 km (or is it 3.5 km?) walk each way. I’ll be writing a detailed account of what this famous walk entails over on WhyGo Australia, but I wanted to take the time to talk more about what it is that you actually see from time to time over at Bondi Beach.
>> Read my write-up of the Bondi to Bronte walk
1. Surfers, hot surfers, and more surfers.
2. Girls in swimsuits.
I think it’s funny the perception of what’s acceptable in normal life, and what goes at the beach. Women lay out with their tops off and walk around in close to nothing and it’s normal. Do the same around town and you wouldn’t be so classy.
3. Bondi Rescue lifeguards saving the day.
A popular television show here is called Bondi Rescue and it follows the Bondi lifeguards doing their jobs. This show of course is marketed to showing viewers what NOT to do while at the beach, so don’t do anything that will get on it. Since these guys are the real deal, you can possibly come across a filming of the series.
4. Bondi Vet’s Chris Brown catching waves.
Another popular show here is Bondi Vet, a series about a hunky male veterinarian in the Bondi suburb. Oh yes, he cares for animals, and he loves to surf. You just might see him down at the beach one day.
Uhm, yes… I haven’t. I don’t want to. But, it’s possible.
6. Skateboarders at the skate park.
7. Fishermen off the rocks.
I’m not sure how good the fishing is over at Bondi, but you catch sight of a number of guys hanging out on the rocks with poles. My boyfriend looked on green with envy the entire walk.
8. People having sex in public.
Hey, you might even get lucky and score views of people having sex in public. I happened upon this near the beginning of the walk. There was a hill that had some benches on top that Pat and I went to in order to catch a great view. I turned, saw, turned around and told Pat that I think those people in the trees where having sex. He turned, saw, turned back, confirmed, and then we walked back down the hill laughing.
What an eventful day.
