The other day I went for a walk from Coogee to Clovelly. These are two beaches along the Pacific Ocean coast of Sydney. We are fortunate to have about seventy beaches, approximately thirty-nine of these are ocean beaches. My walk started at Coogee, easily reached by bus from my home in Newtown. As well as the beach there are two ocean baths: Wylies and the Women’s Baths.
On the day I went, the weather was perfect, if a bit unseasonal.
It’s meant to be Autumn here now, the temperature was around
30C/86F. The water was warm too at 22C/72F.
The long vertical ‘cloud’ is a vapour stream from an airplane.
Coogee Beach is located under one of the three main flight paths
to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport.
Two excellent examples of Sydney Sandstone at Coogee. The rock
is very soft and takes quite a pounding from the wind and high
tides. Art may imitate nature, but nature cannot imitate art.
