On my walk from Bronte to Coogee, I passed by the luckiest lawn bowls club in the world and a cemetery with the best view!
First up was Waverly Cemetery which also surprised me having the best real estate location and superb views. Made me think about the ever after and would this be a nice spot to finally be laid to rest?? I shook that thought out of my head and continued on… no hurry to think about that sort of thing!
I was so surprised walking along the coast past beautiful wind shaped sandstone and native bush to find up ahead a bowls club right on the coastline atop a sandstone cliff. It is Clovelly Bowls Club. Bowling with a view. Couldn’t believe it! Another prime location that hasn’t been sold out to property moguls but there for the people instead.
Just round the bend from there is Clovelly Surf Club with its own tidal pool but this one, even though they say its the most protected wasn’t impervious to the winds and no-one was braving the sea. One more bend in the coastline and I ventured past Gordon’s Bay with its clear blue water which is fairly protected and ideal for diving and snorkelling. As each step went on I became more determined to come back for a summer holiday and really take advantage of the warmer weather and take more photos, dawn and dusk and maybe venture into one of the tidal pools. The only crack in my ideal thoughts would be that the rest of Australia will be doing the same thing!
Next weeks post will be on the idyllic tidal pools of Coogee beach.
