Destination: Pathway from Bondi to Bronte to Coogee
Inspitaiton: David Arquette, always full of inspiration, sends for my favorite thing to do on vacation – run.
Actualization: I actually did David’s moment twice. Janae and I fortunately….and unfortunately..caught the last day of the Sculptures by the Sea on the Bondi pathway. People kept saying, “oh you are so lucky you got to see the Sculptures by the Sea! It’s only here for two weeks a year.” There were some fun sculptures, like shoes that looked like they were made of sand.
However, for me, climbing over all the nerdy tourists taking pictures of every item even remotely resembling art…is not that fun. So today I went for the moment I much more prefer. An early run on the empty path. I walked along feeling the breeze and ocean mist, watching the older couples who seemed to be doing their routine walks, and hot surfer boys preparing to hit the waves. I ended up running past Coogee and past a cemetery, over to a golf course, and a cool waterway where people were swimming in place against the force of the current.
Realization: Make the moment your own 🙂
Here’s David’s whole email in case you head down under:
“Walk from Bondi to Bronte (and further if you are up for it to Coogee). Brekky at Bills ( must each Turkish bread ). Lunch at Balmoral beach, then the zoo which has the best view of the harbor. Blue mountains are stunning (you can take the train). Palm beach is great too, stroll through the botanical gardens at Circular Quay. Shopping on Oxford street in Paddington. Watson’s bay/Vaucluse on a Sunday afternoon for fish and chips and beer (great surrounding cliff hikes) you can catch the ferry there“.
