Issue 34

This past summer in Sydney was one drenched by rains, hit by thunderstorms, strong winds and flash flooding.

The umbrella was an indispensable item for anyone leaving home. Even if the mornings seemed to be sunny, the afternoons would bring the clouds and the buckets of rain.

Not too much beach for us. Too busy with the daily pour.

But autumn seems to have changed the trend, after mid March: the days are sunny and beautiful, not too hot, just as they should be. And the ocean water is absolutely divine, the right temperature for a good, long swim.

Feel like splashing the water in a rock pool? Feel like watching the waves hit the rocks with the water forced upward and then into the pool?

You can if you visit Sydney and go to our our favourite Australia beach. See here which one and why we like it.
