After the excesses of Mari gras, it was nice to have a lie in to let the hang over recede before Derek and I went to coogee beach. Sydney being full of surprises meant a small bus ride from the large American style city centre took us to a Victorian style English seaside resort - complete with fish (a tasty new zealand variety) and chips! In the evening I met up with a nice young man called Kurt and the following morning we took a ferry into town passing nearby to the slightly scary clown by the entrance to a retro theme park called Luna park. This was followed by a spectacular view of the famous Sydney opera house and harbour bridge. The unusual weather which saw monsoon like conditions the day previously has given to non stop sunshine. So a visit today to the famous Bondi beach was in order where beautiful body after beautiful body was on display. I could get used to this.......
