SOS Day 4 – Beached at Bondi ?

Posted: October 18, 2018 in Uncategorized

Well, certainly feel a bit like a whale today after yesterday’s lunch! Did venture to the gym early but the two treadmills and 1 skip rope provided for the 3000 guests were in use. Who would have thunk ? Simple plan today . Stay dry and under 120 kg. Not as easy as may sound given our last 3 days . Harkle are in Melbourne today harassing non ambulatory 98 yr olds so good chance attention will focus more on us again. Second plan then is to travel out to Bondi Beach to see Sculptures by the Sea and hope they were not washed away. First up though we sped past Mach 1 at the speed of sound and straight to Mach 2 for breakfast. Given the breakfast I had glad sound barrier already broken…

Then it was time to mix with the great unwashed , despite the rain, on the Bus To Bondi. Moved along quite well actually and we alighted a couple of stops before the actual beach is the start of 2 km coastal walk dotted with Scupltures. Or so we thought. In fairness the weather has been bad but to say the much heralded display opening was still a work in progress is being generous. Some sculptures still wrapped up, some in crates etc Of course with the arty farty crowd banging up this stuff some may look half done but actually be finished masterpieces 😏

Given that some left over roofing iron and fence palings hammered together was unlikely to enthrall for hours we also planned to visit Watsons Bay for a review in honour of Watto and a plumb LBW. We could achieve this by bus. You don’t have to actually swim everywhere in Sydney just because it is all on a Harbour. While waiting for said conveyance some pop art caught my eye.i don’t see the connection to Dirty Dancing but there ya go

By now of course the sun was blazing which made for a very pleasant stop at Watsons Bay and adjacent sand congregations. A bit of a walk around with lovely views and then back down to the wharf for some fish and chips as you do

Caught the ferry home this time and it does get along trust me. Get off at Circular Quay for the 20 min walk home. Notice many Invictus Games folk around already in their distinctive shirts . A couple of hours relaxing now and then will head across road to The Swinging Cat for a late afternoon cocktail. Apparently The Dangling Pussy next door had to close its doors for health reasons

I drunk. I swung. I even purred a little
