For a girl who has no car, barely any money, and the most bizarre work/sleep schedule around, I sure do a lot of activities! Today Cass and I caught the bus (two actually) to the eastern beaches of Sydney. The eastern suburbs have a bit of a bad rap, mainly due to the wealth and stature of the people who can actually afford to live there. It’s widely known in Sydney if you live in the eastern suburbs… you never really leave the eastern suburbs. Regardless, there’s some great eye candy (in both male, female and view-form).
Don’t be fooled the walk is not a casual stroll. There are hills, stairs, rocks and roads – at one point we even took a detour through a cemetery! But in the 26 degree heat, well equipped with a backpack of water and bandaids we had an awesome time. It took us an hour in total but we only went one way! You pass from Bondi, through Bronte beach, Clovelly, Gordons Bay and arrive in Coogee. I’m sure there are some other small bays between but I’m not completely sure of the name. If you’re looking for a shorter stroll Bronte also looked like a nice place to stop – maybe I will next time.
Once we got to Coogee we laid under a tree for a while (the post-walk lay-down is always so satisfying). In Coogee we were going to go to the Coogee Pavillion for a bite to eat but the prices weren’t exactly fitting our budget (given our recent Laneway escapades). Instead we went to a cute cafe called the Bell & Anchor for lunch. I got a prosciutto stack with two poached eggs, sourdough, feta, cherry tomatoes and rocket… it was incredible.
